Oatmeal with frozen mixed fruit, ground flax, chia seeds, almond milk and maple syrup

That is almost exactly my oatmeal recipe, except I also add walnuts, a dash of vanilla, and a cinnamon stick. Then I sprinkle ground cinnamon on top.

However, I ran out of oats and made the same recipe with quinoa this week. I've never made quinoa for breakfast before. It's a nice addition to my breakfast repertoire!

Didn't eat breakfast yet but had a snack of a couple of sardines on crackers! So good! Oh and a ginger tea.

I continued with my breakfast experimentation this week.

Instead of using the spinach I have to eat alongside eggs and potatoes, I salvaged some arugula that was wilting and sauteed it with some green onions instead. It was a weird texture because of the wilting, but was acceptable enough to eat and I didn't throw it away. It was no longer good for salad.

The spinach is still doing OK and I will add it to my future eggs and potatoes breakfast.

Sadly out of bacon and potatoes. So it just a breaky burrito with refried beans, egg, cheese and hot sauce. Couple mugs of coffee too.

-1/2 a breakfast sandwich (homemade) on ciabatta bread. Sprinkled with leftover gouda.
-Diced fruit. Pineapple, banana, & melon.

Vegemite on sourdough.

Any other bread is giving me grief lately, so I'm sticking with the sourdough, and I find somewhere I can get it for <$3 a loaf (compared with $5.50) so I'm happy.

Where do you get your sourdough? I find it pretty hit and miss except for a couple of $$ local brands. (Not very sour bread tends to be too high GI for me to manage)

Aldi.

White, wholemeal and wholegrain bread have been causing me a lot of pain and bloating, so I switched to sourdough exclusively. I was eating Woolies sourdough for a while ($5.50 for unsliced, and hard to get as it sold out almost immediately).

Our only local bakery is your typical French hot bread shop - no sourdough in sight.

I always check the ingredients for sourdough - anything that contains yoghurt or another additive means it's not true sourdough and is likely to upset my system.

Rolled Oats soaked over night with a splash of chia seeds, and milk added in the morning. Heated for 20seconds in the microwave.

Same thing every day usually, aiming for it every single day this year! I might occasionally omit the Chia or milk or heating. But always the oats.

Today I took them in a container to work and added the milk and did the heating there. I walk to work, its a minor piece of fasting-excercise to help with my endurance. Also, it means I use work milk and microwave and not mine, BadASS!!!

Limited fridge options until I go shopping today, so:
-1 espresso w/milk (trying to cut from 2 to 1, reducing cost on the coffee beans & milk)
-2 bites of egg & banana from youngest son's plate
-a pear

Oatmeal, chia, flax, cashew milk frozen berries

Don't think I didn't notice you switched out the almond milk for cashew milk...

I may try this with hemp milk I bulk purchased when it was on sale. Hemp milk seems to be a bit thinner than the almond milk I buy. However, when I make oatmeal with almond milk, I do tend to add some water to it to get it to the right consistency.

A variation on Bircher muesli, made the night before by DH. 1/2 grated apple, 20g rolled oats, 1 homegrown nectarine (chopped), 1/2 banana mixed together with a bit of skim milk and some natural yoghurt. Yum! He might have also added a bit of golden syrup, I forget now.

Another variation this morning because we are drowning in homegrown nectarines: 20g rolled oats, 2 homegrown nectarines chopped, splash of skim milk (but no yoghurt because we'd run out). DH also has just informed me he adds a few drops of vanilla essence.

Both sound delish. I would love tobe drowning in nectarines. My fave when in season.
