- Breakfast Ideas That Help Promote Weight Loss (trainingwithjesse.wordpress.com)
I’m a new convert to oatmeal. It was always too sweet or bland. I like meat and eggs for breakfast but decided to try it again. I tried several quick cooking brands but too they were too sweet or had that artificial sweeter taste. I don’t do artificial sweeteners. I tried McCann’s quick cooking and it’s great. It’s just oats and nothing else. It takes 2 minutes in the microwave. I wanted to add more protein so I decided to add Just Whites egg white power. I add 4 tsp to half cup oatmeal , then add 1 cup milk and 1 tsp honey. I microwave for two minutes and it’s piping hot and good. The eggs just make your oatmeal fluffy. I also add cinnamon or espresso powder maybe some raisins or figs. Be creative. This is my new favorite. Protein, whole grains what else could you ask for? Like Mr Food says try it you’ll like it.
I think I will forever weight or measure my food. I’m just not good at estimating. I’ve done this for months. I think I’ve got a good handle on it. Not! This morning I’m making my Oatmeal. McCann’s Instant Irish Oatmeal. I wasn’t an oatmeal girl but I love it now. All my measuring cups were dirty(I really need to remember to turn on dishwasher) so I used a small cup. For some reason I thought it measured 1/2 a cup. So I made my oatmeal and even though it seemed a lot more than normal. I ate it all! I was raised to be a clean the plate type of girl. I thought, I should check that cup after I ate and was surprised it was 1 cup. Wow double what I thought. So much for estimating. The bad thing was I knew it was too much. I didn’t have to eat the bowl. I’m still working on the clean plate thing. I have no problem at a restaurant but home is a major problem. I like my cooking what can I say. So from now on I might look crazy but I’m using my scale and measuring cups.
