Purple Oatmeal

I’m supposed to be on a FATTY LIVER Diet, which starts out each day with a bowl of oatmeal every other day then eating one egg and a piece of buttered toast in between. Now that was a horrible 800 calorie diet my cousin was on due to her extreme obesity. I found it unreasonable! I need more calories to survive. But I know I eat too much fat so I started eating oatmeal 5-6 days a week and having two eggs and a slice of toast or even a diner breakfast once in a while including eggs, sausage, bacon or scrapple and home-fries and toast. Anyone on an 800 calorie diet has to be staving all the time, right? it’s CRAZY!

Yet with my IBS I found myself feeling bloated form the oatmeal I was making, which I know is very high in carbs. Here’s the recipe I was using:

1/2 Cup Quick Oats

1/2 cup milk,

1/2 Cup Water

dash salt

1/4 tsp Cinnamon

Dried  or Fresh Fruit (optional)

So I cooked all that for a few minutes and it was quite creamy with the added milk. Then I added a TB honey and a little milk on top to eat it. I added 1/2 cup thawed frozen Maine blueberries once but it was too sour. I then decided to just eat the berries separately after I added 1 level tsp table sugar.

Today I cut back the oats to 1/3 cup and added almost 1 cup water, the cinnamon and salt then I added the sugared berries into the oatmeal at the end of the cooking along with 2 tsp honey, and it was a bowl of purple deliciousness! I highly recommend it! I don’t feel bloated since I didn’t add the extra milk to the recipe., and it was just too big a serving before. Tomorrow I may try not sugaring the fruit! LOL


Blizzard of 2017

Well we survived the Blizzard of 2017. Stella came and went  and left us over 22 inches of snow. Thank God for the snowblower. My son was working for over 5 hours yesterday clearing the drive ways, sidewalks and paths for us, my father and the neighbor. I cleared off 1/2 the back deck, but the wind filled it in again. Thankfully it will warm up to 40 degrees by the end of the week and start melting this mess.

Anonymous Blog Trolls- You know who you are..

There are a few anonymous bloggers who “hide” behind their “Sweet” little cute-see blogs.  One of whom posts cute little animal posts from time to time then he/she surfs WordPress blogs in their voyeuristic way. We know nothing about them, they reveal nothing about who they are. In fact they are COWARDS hiding in plain sight. They are CREEPY to say the least. Are there people out there who might want to see what I post? I know of at least two. Do I sound paranoid? Well it’s true I am..
