Less is Best

This is my kind of food.

  
It is very simple.

  

One ingredient!

  

  
 
 

Tho only one ingredient, it has a multitude of benefits.

The steel oats are an excellent source of good carbs, a decent amount of fiber, and they even have protein. The oats are a great way to start my day or eat as a second meal in the morning.

A healthy diet does not have to be complicated, sometimes less is best.

Oatmeal is said to be one of the healthiest foods around. Before you turn your nose up, read about the plethora of benefits of eating oats.

While you read about the good stuff oats have to offer, I am going to toss mine in the crockpot. I usually cook two cups at a time.  I add several peeled and sliced apples, three (3) cups of water and four (4) cups of coconut milk.  Then I add two tablespoons of flax seed, one tablespoon of chia seeds, one tablespoon of cinnamon and a teaspoon of nutmeg.  If you like, you can add raisins, nuts, dried cranberries, bananas, or whatever else you want to add.  I use to cook the oats for longer, but now I let them cook slowly for about 2 – 3 hours… Then I will have a week or so worth of no fuss oats.  Yay!   🙂

Eat clean and train dirty!  That’s the motto of bodybuilding.  

Happy Day!   Smooches!


100 Happy Days Update

With 88 days remaining of my 100 Happy Days Challenge, I am diggin in full steam ahead.

So far I have not struggled with finding things that make me happy. It is the capturing of the image that is trying to sabotage my success. What’s up? My iPhone is near capacity. Lol!

Every where I go, the novice photographer in me, is taking pictures. I’ve got tons of apps (mostly Free), videos and documents. Who knew that a phone would replace a desktop? You know what I am getting at right? iPhone 6 or iPhone plus💋

Today’s happiness came in the form of a delightful bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon and fresh strawberries. I usually add blueberries, but ran out, so in a split second, I sliced up the strawberries and covered my oats. Amazing!! You have to try it.
