Trying new to-me-things & learning

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

So I have challenged myself to try new things.
Healthy food.

Okay so I have found out that I am not one of those people that can eat 100%Whole Grain Oats (Oatmeal) I even added diced apple, cinnamon and some sugar. This is one NEW thing I have tried and vote NO on eating any more. I am donating the rest of the canister to my MIL. She loves the stuff.

I also tried a New-to-me Braeburn Apple & loved it! I usually get the Honey Apple. LOL Sweet & juicy! I sliced the Braeburn Apple, sprinkled it with cinnamon and heated it in the microwave for a minute, let it set for a minute and heated it again for another minute, let it set for a minute before eating! You talk about a yummy way to start the day! OMGW! LOL

Another thing I tried yesterday. I made my very Own Homemade salad dressing! Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Balsamic Vinegar & random seasonings I had in my cabinet. No Salt tho! & I loved it!

*I did try to find some "already made up dressing, but ALL of it had SUGAR added. I do not need sugar, I do not want sugar added to every single thing I eat. Why does the food industries add so much sugar & salt to the foods. They should leave it out and if the consumer wants it in there... let them add the amount they want! LOL My thoughts on that.*

I have gotten hooked on Lean Turkey burgers! Tho I am eating them moderately as I should.

Over the weekend I made my very Own Homemade Veggie Chicken Soup & have been bringing it to work for my lunch! I love it! It is yummy & Oh so Healthy!

For breakfast I have a box of Kashi Cinnamon Harvest! Yummers! I pour Vanilla Almond Milk on it & eat!

More to come...

    Good for you, trying new stuff. I recently got to like oatmeal after many years of hating the stuff. It came about gradually as a result of cutting sugar almost completely out of my diet. Somehow the oatmeal finally started to taste OK. I do what you tried, cut apple into it while cooking, then I add a tiny bit of almond milk at the end and one teaspoon of pure maple syrup. It's passable, and some days I even like it! So maybe don't give up on oatmeal just yet? Or do, and find other alternatives.

    I agree with you so much about sugar and the stupid food industry. They are trying to kill us all.

    Good luck!

    Trying new things is always a challenge, but discovering new things you like is rewarding.
    I wish you continued success in your journey.

    I love Bob's Red Mill Steel Cut Oats cooked overnight in my slow cooker. Delicious on a cold morning with cinnamon added.
    And I have often wondered why manufacturers add so much sodium to stuff too. Don't they taste what they make? Extremely salty. Just makes you thirsty the rest of the day - unless they are in league with the drink manufacturers to get us to buy more drinks too. Hum...

    I am not a huge fan of oatmeal either, but I LOVE Bob's Red Mill 10 Grain Hot Cereal. I add unsweetened coconut and reduced sugar craisins with some skim milk. Yum!
