Thank you so much. I'll be picking some up next time I'm at the store and trying those recipes.

I'm saving this thread to my favorites.

Again, thanks a bunch.

Almost any grocery store carries it now, in the organic section probably. Healthy stores always have it.

YUMMY!

**************************

SLOW COOKER STEEL CUT OATS WITH APPLES AND PEARS

My favorite brand name isArrowhead Mills
Organic Steel Cut Oats
Hot Cereal
It has the most fiber per serving.
Per serving: 160 calories, 3 grams fat and 8 grams fiber.

Quick and easy to prepare!

COOK AHEAD for the whole week! (especially if you're in a hurry in the morning)

Take it to work and heat it up. you'll be less hungry during the day.


Absolutely DELICIOUS!
I eat it every day once or more, for breakfast, snack, or dessert.

2 points per cup following the recipe as is.


NOTES!
1. you can make a smaller amount.
2. The amount of water has to be 4 times the amount of oats.
Example:
For 1/2 cup steel cut oats, use 2 cups water
3. This recipe makes enough for the whole week.
4. You may add raisens, dates, dried crunberrie, or other dried fruits, if you wish, while counting your points(calories).
Check Trader Joe's for wonderful selection of dried fruits.
5. I like to eat it hot with vanilla soyslender milk (you can use skim milk)
6. You may add pinch of ground cardemon, cloves, pumpkin spice......
7. It fills you up (HIGH FIBER: 8 grams per 1/4 cup dry steel cut oats plus high fiber in apple and pears)
8. I add splenda to taste and 1 TBS. of DaVinchi sugar free, fat free syrup (0 calories per 1 TBS.)
9. I add (for additional points) 1 cup berries
(I buy frozen berries at Trader Joe's)
11. It's also great with 2 TBS. FF (or low fat) cottage cheese
12. YUMMY with 1-2 tsp. low fat PEANUT BUTTER (for additional points)!!!


INGREDIENTS

4 small pears, peeled, seeded, and diced
4 smallapples, peeled, seeded, and diced
1 1/2 cups steel cut oats (I like the organic Steel Cut Oats Hot Cereal by Arrohead Mills)
6 cups water (or up to 7 cups water)
1 stick cinnamon

METHOD

Put everything in the slow cooker and cook for 6-8 hours on LOW.
Refrigirate.

****************************************
**************************************

OTHER IDEAS FROM OTHER WW MEMBERS!

3 1/2 cups skim milk
3 1/2 cups water
2 cups steel cut oats
2 cinnamon sticks

Cook on low 4 hours

****************************************
**************************************

If you don't want to do it in the crockpot:
1 cup steel cut oats
4 cups water

pour water and steel cut oats into large saucepan, bring to rolling boil, cover, remove from heat and let sit a few hours (or overnight) until water is absorbed.
When the majority of the water is absorbed, I add cinnamon then divide up into small bowls for easy reheating during the week.

You can add bananas or spiced apples before you reheat.
You also can add 1 tsp of oil and some sf coffee flavoring at this time, along with a splash of fat free milk.

****************************************
**************************************

Spiced Irish Oatmeal
6 servings

3 cups water
1 cup steel cut oats
1 tablespoon brown sugar substitute
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1 dash ground cloves or ground nutmeg 3 cups nonfat milk

Combine ingredients. Cook on low setting in crockpot 4 hours.
Makes 3 cups (six 1/2-cup servings).

****************************************
**************************************

Steel cut oats with apples and cranberries

1 1/2 cup steel cut oats
6 cups milk/water (half milk, half water - depends on my milk supply)
1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
2 apples, peeled and diced fairly large
1/2 cup or so SF caramel syrup (like davinci)
cinnamon, nutmeg to taste

Cook on high for about 4 hours. Refrigerate, then scoop out individual servings to reheat daily.

***If you prefer your apple with a bit of crunch, add it during the last hour.


WHAT ARE STEEL CUT OATS?

Steel-Cut Oats are whole grain groats (the inner portion of the oat kernel) which have been cut into only two or three pieces. They are golden in color and resemble mini rice particles.

How are they different from Rolled Oats?
Rolled oats are flake oats that have been steamed, rolled, re-steamed and toasted. Due to all of this additional processing they have lost some of their natural taste, goodness and texture.

What makes Steel-cut Oats so special?
Grains are essential to a healthy lifestyle and form the foundation of the food pyramid Steel-cut oats are inherently full of nutritional value and are high in B-Vitamins, calcium, protein and fiber while low in salt and unsaturated fat. One cup of steel-cut oatmeal contains more fiber than a bran muffin and twice as much fibre as Cream of Wheat.

The book I'm reading now "How to make almost any "diet" work by Anne Katherine actually use the terms food addiction and eating disorder and it does compare it to other addictions as well. Very interesting book. Have you heard about it?

I also eliminate foods that I'm "addicted" to and can't stop at one.
One thing I've learnt and it works for me: I've learnt to substitute rich desserts with low calories, low sugar and low fat desserts.
These are the ones I can stop at one, and if I find I can't a certain one, then off it goes, out of sight and out of mind.
I can have with no problems one healthy choice chocolate bar (1 point) every evening and I'm happy with it.
Another great "dessert" is my steel cut oats oatmeal with apples and pears. Just love it! It's easily replace any cake for me.
I'm learning now to eat healthy snacks. Period! Very interesting experiment.

Nita
Thank you. You're a sweetheart.
It's never too late to start over and what a better time than now.
If you wish, you can join us on our daily challenge "On plan/Move JUST FOR TODAY" just for one week as an experiment.
I know you can do it!
Good luck

Mimi, you compare it to the alcoholic not being able to stop at one drink, and that is exactly why alcoholics in recovery don't drink at all. There are a bunch of plans out there to try to teach alcoholics to drink "normally" but they don't work for any length of time.

For the same reason, I simply don't eat certain foods. Funny you should mention donuts, that's one. And cinammon rolls. I don't eat them either. But I don't eat them one day at a time, and the days accumulate rather than the weight.

No one ever got up in the morning wishing she'd eaten more the night before.

Mimi, I met you 5 years ago! Hard to believe! You had just made maintenance if I am correct in this...
You are such an inspiration! You have been since I first met you... such a positive attitude. I only wish I had followed your advice this 5 years.
Hugs and best wishes!

I'm more of a salty foods addict I guess. It's hard to stop the pretzels!

It depends on whether or not it is a trigger food. If it is, than I have given it up. Donuts - yum! But a trigger food....so I haven't eaten one in 3 years. (I can't eat just one). On the other hand I eat a bite of chocolate every day! It satisfies me to have either a Weight Watchers 1 or 2 point bar, or a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich or drumbstick, or I might have a WW chocolate chip cookie etc; I can stop by having just one - it takes the edge off of wanting something sweet.

Once I get started, my brain just calls for more. It's best for me to leave the "goodies" completely alone.

That's probably a big part of how you reached your goal, Rita.

I wish I had your skills.

I have given up doughnuts because I can't handle them.

Actually, it isn't for me.

The one thing I "gave up" while I was trying to lose weight was donuts (I didn't realize I hadn't eatten a donut in 7 months until my sister asked me what I had given up). When I got down to my goal, I said, "I need to go get a donut". Someone at my DH's work had brought donuts that day and he brought me home 2 cake donut holes. I ate one for dessert at lunch and then the other one the next day.

Once I start I am unable to stop. My dad and I used to say it's easier to lose weight if we can just put off eating as long as possible.
