Nope, I’m not talking about these lazy boys (cats… or as we call them: fats).
I’m talking about some new dietary things I’ve been trying. The changes involve fat and animals. Like steel-cut oats cooked in water and almond milk, then topped with organic butter and maple syrup:
I take food to work in these containers. Here is another, better picture of steel cut oats from the other day (this is after the butter had been stirred in).
I cooked (makes ~3 servings):
- 4.5 cups of water and almond milk (I did half and half)
- 1 cup steel-cut oats (the “serving size” is 1/4 cup)
- few dashes of salt
- cinnamon optional
- …in my rice cooker.
Just be careful as it cooks – unless you have a very large rice cooker it will overflow. What I like to do is let it start to boil (on the “cook” button), and then turn it to “warm” and let it sit overnight. In the morning you have creamy, chewy, luscious steel-cut oats. They’re just as good as Jamba Juice‘s.
Or how about this guy…
Veggies cooked in 1-2 tablespoons of organic butter, topped with whipped full-fat cream cheese. I actually didn’t have this yet because my boss bought us lunch today (snow day!) – so I saved it in the fridge for tomorrow.
What are your thoughts on diet and healing? Do you think that food can really have that much of an impact on your well-being?
