    Question Quick and Easy Meals - nutty oatmeal

    Primal Fuel
    I just tried the quick and easy oatmeal recipe - 1/2 cup almonds, 1/2 cup pecans, coconut milk, cinnamon,1/2 banana, salt. I'm pondering if this is such a good thing to eat - basically, you're eating a whole cup of nuts which is a whole lotta fat, topped off with coconut milk. That's quite a few Omega 6's down the hatch as well. I don't have a gallbladder anymore, so was expecting the worst, but so far so good some 8 hours later.

    I can appreciate low carbing, but is eating an entire cup of nuts really such a good idea? I did use "lite" coconut milk which cuts down on the fat some. The taste was good at first, but as I continued to eat, it seemed to be pretty intense and heavy going down. Just wondered if anyone else had tried this or had opinions. I was trying to find some alternatives to eggs for breakfast.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    The recipe does say it's 2 servings. However I agree that it's probably not the optimal thing to eat. Yeah it's grain-free, but like you said, chock-full of omega-6. It also says you can use almond milk which would make it even lighter than coconut milk if you're concerned about fat/cals. How about eating dinner for breakfast? Leftover meat+veggies are good any time of day. I think it's just American culture that says that breakfast has to either be a carb-fest or bacon+eggs. Cultures around the world eat all sorts of crazy stuff for breakfast.

    I think common sense would say it's probably not something you should eat every single day, but... on a chilly Sunday morning, it sure does sound comforting.

    I wouldn't eat that now, but I will say that when I started PB nuts were a great bridge food. I kept nuts in my desk and snacked on them every afternoon. Now I don't need snacks, and nuts just don't appeal to me that much. I'm still working on the O3/O6 thing though, PB is a process. So if you want them, eat them. As for alternatives to eggs, what about salmon, or smoked salmon with tomatoes, or tuna salad? Sometimes I have 5-6 slices of bacon, straight, nothing else. Sliced turkey, leftover steak.

    Holy Smokes - didn't even notice the 2 servings! That means I just tossed down 100 Grams of fat at one sitting. Amazing - a mere 1000 calories for breakfast - that should beef up this 136 lb frame. LOL gads.

    The sandwich bread on the other thread is a good alternative for breakfast. I fold in some coconut...or cheese..it is great and quick!
