WHERE ARE THOSE OATMEAL IDEAS?

Hi everyone, There was a thread somewhere recently that had various ideas on what to do with oatmeal (the fruit/nut thing, soaking overnight, etc..) I even posted on it and still can't find it, but I think part of that is due to my migraine where blinking hurts, much less surfing. Anyway, I just rea...

These oatmeal ideas are awesome. I enjoy that for breakfast but I too have to have the fat and protein or I'm screwed. I never thot to let it soak overnight so I'm looking fwd to doing that, since finding time is my issue for breakfast on workdays.

I was lucky enough to see the magazine before it hits the stands... that's how I found out about this concept, and what a concept it is. It's a great idea even though I'm still starting it over and over... but that's my baggage, not anything being wrong with the plan. At least my startovers are fart...

Lindalu... I bought that same stupid 18n4 diet mess. When I told him how much it did NOT work for me, he just sent a more restricted version of it rather than the refund he promised. Like THAT was what I wanted... :roll: Like you said.... live and learn.
