This is my fav. hot cereal. I cook it up n' put fruit on it, maybe some maple syrup. mm.
It's got wheat, rye, and flax. Don't know if you can get it in the UK tho (?)

The ways I do it is I try to eat just a little bit o' carb and protein together. If you don't get any carbs, your body will use the protein as pure fuel. It's sort of a 'waste' to me. I think the trick is balancing how much energy you actually use vs how much you put in your face. lol. It's easy to overeat pasta, porridge, all that stuff.

Anyways......
If you generally follow something like this:

you can't really go wrong. This may sound silly, but if you look at what you eating at a meal, and it is all white - find some different colours and textures to eat together.

If you're dieting tho, then that's a bit different. I dunno about that too much.

I suppose it could, but the thought makes me shudder a bit.

I make mine first thing, then let it cool and gloop up a bit while I'm doing the old ablutions.
Warm is how I like it....and thick.

What I do is put a small cup of oats in the saucepan, then two small cups of water, and one of milk. Add a pinch of salt (if you want) and turn on the heat, stirring continuously until it starts to boil.
Take it off the heat, stir it well, and leave it to "stew" for a bit (five to ten mins?) .I then pour it into a bowl, add a small spoon full of honey, stir it around and chomp the lot.

Nature's central heating.
