Eat Low-Fat Food

Hi! I'm a mom of 2 and I love tasty (and fatty) food (Really, who doesn't?)! I own my love for the lards of life, but I budget my fats daily or else I easily overspend. By living a low-fat lifestyle, I hope to develop super powers (or something comparable would suite me just fine). At the very least, I hope my cholesterol levels will be thanking me as I gracefully progress through the ages and stages of life. Follow me on my eating journey to a healthier lifestyle through delicious low-fat food.

Try Toasted Oatmeal


I've said it before here, and things haven't changed much, oatmeal is not my favorite. I've had oatmeal for breakfast the past week. I'm starting to get a little tired of the blueberry oatmeal I've been making, so I turned to my good friend, the Internet, to find other ways to eat oatmeal. I found a recipe that claims to be the best toasted oatmeal.  Follow the link below to find the recipe. I cut the fat in half by only using a bit of butter and a bit of olive oil equaling about a half tablespoon.

The original recipe for the best toasted oat meal


I had no problem finishing this oatmeal. The texture and the flavor are not so pasty. Next time I make this, and there will be a next time, I will toast my oats a little less. I thought it tasted good, almost like popcorn, but my children thought it tasted a little burned. And after they said that, I could tell what they were talking about, although the oats didn't burn, they didn't need to toast as long. I waited until I could smell them. Next time I'll just look for a  color change.

I served the toasted oatmeal with a splash of milk and a drizzle of organic maple syrup.  YUM! the only downside to this recipe is it takes about 15 minutes to make and I'm used to spending 2 minutes or less preparing breakfast. Oh well. I guess sometimes sacrifices must be made for the greater good... food.
