Have you got fed up with weight loss plans where you have to count points? Weigh everything you eat? Eat special foods that cost a fortune? Confused about high carbs/low carbs, and the GI of foods? Me too. I wanted to invent myself an eating plan that was healthy, dead simple and that didn’t cost me huge amounts.
Ok, a bit more on breakfast. It’s not just important that you have it, it’s WHAT you have that’s important. This is the best time of the day to be eating whole grains, which we should have every day. Don’t go for instant oats – pick the kind that need to be simmered for 5 minutes. Add things like kibbled wheat to make it chewy, because one thing we don’t do enough of in our over-processed society is chew our food. Our ancestors had nothing like today’s incidence of bowel cancer, and diet is a big part of that.
Valeri asked about my sourdough - I made the starter from (I think) flour, water and honey about 2 1/2 years ago. Every time I use some, I 'feed' it with more flour and water, and it just keeps going. If anyone is interested, I'll hunt out the starter recipe. At least I know exactly what's in my bread, and there's no preservatives or additives.
