    emoticon You sent me searching! And I learned info I wanted to know. Article I read states that rolled oats, quick oats, and steel cut oats all have the same nutritional value. Biggest difference is in the superior taste of steel-cut.
    Some say there is less processing in the stee-cut, so they should be more nutritious, but haven't found that to be true.
    One thing they emplasize is to stay away from the Instant that have added salt and sugar.
    So that is our lesson for the day!!!

    emoticon Don't know the answer concerning nutritional value of steel cut oats, but will check that out.
    You probably have Kroger's in your area and that is where I get the best buy on Bob's Red Mill Steel Cut Oats. Takes a while to cook them in double boiler, but I love the recipe I found on SP to do them in crockpot. I do recommend a 2 qt. crockpot or you have to make a huge batch.
    We get 7 servings from a smaller batch and DH and I just heat them in microwave for several days.
    Also, our favorite apple is MacIntosh, but they were done when son went apple picking. But he brought a nice variety.
    Talk later, Carol emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Thanks for comment. I have never put banana on my oatmeal, but always put it on cold cereal.
    I chopped the 1/2 apple very fine before putting oatmeal in microwave, added raisins, cinnamon and water before cooking, then pecans and soymilk after cooking.
    Have you ever tried Steel Cut Oats? I cook them in small crockpot overnight and love them - especially when weather gets cooler.
    Guess it might be cool enough in northern OH, but is very hot in FL right now.
    BTW, the apples I am using came from Port Clinton. Our son picked them and packed 1/2 bushel in his suitcase when he flew to NC to visit us before we headed south.
    Hope you are armed to resist Hallowe'en goodies and ready to get November off to a good start.

    Hi, I don't think you are totally off the program or you would not be opening up the Spark site and communicating with us. That is one step forward. Maybe you are off your eating plan today, but so was I. Tomorrow starts a new day and we can both get right back on track. Let's give it a try.
