Title pretty well says it all. This 5 week challenge is devoted simply to eating right. The goal is to intermittent fast 6 days a week, eating only between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. I figured I should take my lack of food around the house and turn it to my advantage. Instead of grubbing for food on the way home, I can get a decent meal at work for breakfast and lunch, and keep it at that. Simple, measurable, and achievable. Game on! - Murphy's Roommate
I lean towards a very protein heavy version of the Weight Watchers plan. Part of that is oatmeal, which I despised until I found this method. I cannot remember where I got it, but I may have seen it in an Alton Brown book? I simply take my steel cut oats and put them in a pot with a pat of real butter 1tsp. of EVOO, 1/2 tsp. of kosher salt, and toast them over medium heat until they get a nice rich brown color and the whole house smells like popcorn. After they are good and toasty, I add 3x the volume of the oats in water (6 cups water for 2 cups oats) and 1/2-1 cups of dry nonfat milk. sometimes I plop in a dash of good vanilla extract too. I then bring them to a boil and as soon as they are rolling I clap on the lid and turn my gas all the way down as low as it will get. in an hour I have the best chewy, savory oats in the world. I flavor them with some black or blue berries and stevia, or get this...If I want a savory dinner, I mix in an envelope of onion soup mix and some dark beer to make a right good porridge. I know this site is Paleo oriented but for me there is room for good carbs in my healthy diet.
