Thanks afreesspirit. Very kind of you.
Today is Friday, and I lost another 1.5 pounds this week. Not bad at all since I am not a strict adherent to the plan as many others are. Though after reading about the great losses of others, that is tempting.
Over time, I've eaten a lot of oatmeal for breakfast, but not lately, so I'm preparing some today. Because of a dairy allergy (now mostly gone), I've never cooked it with milk, but water. For years I hated having that allergy because it restricted my food choices so much, but in retrospect, it was a good thing since I have never eaten much of anything made from milk - yogurt, cottage cheese, fluid milk, ice cream, cheese, butter, etc. Though now that I seem to have outgrown the allergy, I do miss cheese.
Anyway, I'm having oatmeal for breakfast, with lots of dried blueberries (from my own plants), cinnamon, and a dash of molasses for flavor, and sweetner. In the past I used to toss in a mega handful of chopped almonds, but sniff
, no more.
It's a pretty day here. I have planned another day of cooking to make sure 'good' things are easily available. Yesterday I cooked up a batch of rice, but today it's washing and chopping veggies, and salad makings, and making more apple/cranberry/lemon cooked fruit mix. There must be a better name for that.
Oatmeal is done. Time to eat.
edit: And it was very good. 1st time I've put a bit of molasses into it, and it really made it even better. Only about a half measuring teaspoon or so, though I didn't measure. It adds that brown sugar flavor, which makes sense since it is molasses that is added to make b.sugar.
