addicted to healthy choices
buy local and cook seasonal, emphasis on heart-healthy and low cholesterol foods
exercise for health and flexibility
get to know my camera
capture moments and unexpected views
"cook without recipes"
start with soups, sauces and breads
knit for babies
knit for Christmas gifts
this is an ongoing battle
"yes" to new things
So to start on the goals, I will continue what I started last year--preparing my foods for a week ahead to carry to work to make eating healthy easier during the workweek. Breakfast this week will be the wonderful cholesterol-lowering oatmeal.
To make the mornings easy, I cook for the weekdays on the weekend. I round up 5 microwave-safe bowls for the oatmeal.
I cook oatmeal using a little less than the amount of water suggested on the box. I like the oatmeal to be a thicker texture. I add the raisins when the oatmeal is almost done so I don't get raisin-flavored oatmeal--just oatmeal with softened raisins.
I pack the cooked oatmeal into bowls and let them cool, cover and refrigerate.
