I must admit I had to check my list of Pure Protein Faves today when planning my daily foods. I do tend to mix it around a bit. I have two leftovers, fish and pork. Snacks are yogurt or frozen drinks. I need to have options and plenty of choices.
Water requirement: I have two-quart glass containers in the refrigerator at all times. I also measure my glass containers to ensure I get my full amount. I stop counting after refilling them both once. I do not include any other fluids in my water count. And yes I have to force it down and sometimes flavor it (Sweet Leaf, Valencia Orange). Sis and I concluded years ago that lots of water was the secret to successful dieting. I make sure my water is ice-cold. I filter my own water and do not drink from plastic bottles. I also measure my glass containers to ensure I get my full amount.
If you have been reading my blog lately you know I start my day with this and it is my last snack of the day. It is so filling, sweet, and rich.
Oats in Custard
½ cup of skim milk
1 Tablespoon of Oat bran
1 egg beaten
Splenda to taste.
Piece of vanilla bean (opt)
On medium heat add oats, milk, and vanilla bean to sauce pan. Heat to almost boil (do not burn) stirring frequently. Temper eggs by adding some hot oat mix to eggs while stirring eggs. Add rest of hot milk to eggs then return to pot stirring until it boils, stir constantly, it boils quickly.. Add splenda to taste and serve hot or cold. Remove vanilla bean.
