Here we go again, back at phase 1 for two days. How are you doing? The waist on my jeans is looser, yippee!
I did an experiment last night with cooking oatmeal sous vide. I found that the overnight cooking did not require a change in the recommended oats to liquid ratio. And, I much prefer the steel cup oats to regular rolled oats (even the more expensive organic type). Another recommendation is to try and find unsweetened oat milk and replace half the recommended liquid with oat milk. Of course you could also use regular milk or half and half (rice milk didn’t do much) or coconut milk…oh my the possibilities. But in phase 1 stick to oat milk. This time I didn’t add any fruit. The freeze dried fruit is definitely better. If using any other type (including raisins) add them after the oatmeal is cooked.
Breakfast: Overnight oatmeal with fresh blueberries and cinnamon
Lunch: Open faced turkey sandwich with mustard, tomato, cucumber, red onion and arugula.
Dinner: 5 Hour Beef Stew with Brown Rice
I miss that morning dose of caffeine but don’t have a headache, just find I am a tad slower first thing.
Remember your exercise, some form of aerobic activity today. And drink lots of water.
