Food stuff.

I was wondering if we could share some healthy meal ideas? Good for health, taste and weight. :-)

I'll start with a favourite breakfast recipe - sons Thomas and Greg and myself love this. I got this from Bill Phillip's "Eating for Life"

Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal

P.S. You can leave out the chocolate - its just there for extra taste and to make you feel wicked! lol!

For each person -
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 teaspoon cocoa or drinking chocolate
1/2 - 1 tablespoon reduced fat peanut butter
1 cup water
Opt - scoop protein powder.

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and microwave for two minutes on High. Serve with skim ( fat free ) milk. Very, very nice - you feel like you are eating dessert for breakfast but you are also getting fibre and protein. It's very filling and is my reward breakfast when I am hungry after a tough workout. :-)
