I have been sick all week, not with the flu, thank goodness, but with what has been characterized here as a "wretched" cold bug. Numbers-wise, I have done a good job of staying hydrated, but my blood pressure has been raised all week. I look forward to getting back to normal next week.
Because I was so evil last week to put up a country ham breakfast, it's only fair to put up what I eat six mornings out of seven: oatmeal. I've loved it since I was a kid and, even in summer, it's comforting to me. It's versatile too. I put Trader Joe's Super Seed (chia, flaxseed, quinoa, hemp, millet, amaranth, and buckwheat) https://www.traderjoes.com/fearless-flyer/article/2797 and honey in mine most mornings, but you can add blueberries, walnuts, even peanut butter if you really want a shot (it melts right in).
I pair it with my Silk Vanilla Light/protein supplement, and here's the tally, again, almost every morning:
450 calories, 43 grams protein, 57 grams carb, 9 grams fat
Plus, oats contain both soluble and insoluble fiber, which helps with cholesterol levels and stabilizes blood glucose levels. Because of that fiber, it helps you feel fuller longer, so you don't head off mid-morning for a hit of sugar. And though it doesn't apply to me as an issue, oats are gluten-free, which makes them perfect with folks who have that as a requirement.
