Re: Oat Bran Krumpets

Stirring in whipped egg whites before olive oil, letting mixture rest 10 min. is better!
Batter pours more like muffin tops and can be pressed down slightly. ;)

Cooked Krumpets are more like oat bran fatbread (fatter flatbread). :lol:

Pumpkin Fatbread

Dense Pumpkin Muffin Tops baked as a loaf
and creating a moist pumpkin fatbread. :roll:

1/3 cup brown rice flour
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

1 tbsp light olive oil

:arrow: Directions:

Lightly oil large, oven-proof, non-stick frying pan;
pre-heat oven to 400F degrees.

Re: Pumpkin Fatbread

For simpler flavors, reduce pumpkin pie spice to 1 tsp
and substitute 1 tbsp white sugar for 1/4 cup brown sugar. ;)

1 cup milk instead of 3/4 creates a flatter fatbread.
(serve Fatbread flatter on a small platter) :roll:

"Kraft Mac & Cheese Releases ‘Breakfast Box’ Cuz We’ve All Given Up"

"If you’re a Kraft Macaroni & Cheese fan (or have children who can eat solid food), it’s likely a lunch or dinner staple in your house —
especially these days. But have you ever considered making it for your kid’s breakfast?" :o

:bana: "Comfort food"! As for proper nutrition to start the day (good fiber and protein + low sodium and reasonable carbs),
"We’ve All Given Up" ... apparently. But there are "hacks" to help elevate M&C to healthier "break fast" potential:
Like these: https://www.busybudgeter.com/upgrade-ba ... se-recipe/

:idea: About simple add-ins: Cooked golden cauliflower provides complementary flavor and fiber,
milk provides calcium and protein, and these help dilute typical sodium of packaged M&C. :roll
Other add-ins might elevate the meal too much. ;)

Add sautéed sweet onion and a diabetic might rationalize those pasta carbs! 8)

Hi Rod,
Thank you for all the new additions to this forum. Also...never thought of mac and cheese for breakfast but yum...sounds like a winner to me. Especially with some add-ins. :thumright:

I've sort of been in a pumpkin mood and we have some we have grown in our garden that need to be eaten so I may dig into the pumpkin flatbread recipe.

:sunflower: :hithere

:sunflower: A diabetes discovery journey (this morning's insight) ...

:idea: Unless starving, economically pressured, or trying to please opinionated family and friends (humor), don't eat food that you would prefer to discard! "Economic consumption" represents a lost opportunity to improve your health ... when better food choices exist. :finger:

:scratch: Who can tell?! You might join the diabetics who eventually discover that good health, in today's snackified and fast food world, is defined more by what you don't eat. :roll:

:sunflower: A diabetes discovery journey ...

:study: Re: https://food.ndtv.com/food-drinks/5-ama ... th-1408984

"Since barley water acts as a diuretic ... it is considered to be a natural remedy for urinary tract infections"
"It is also said to be a good remedy for kidney stones or cysts."

:idea: Today's surmise: Simmer 1 cup barley in 5 cups water one hour, then drain the barley water,
saving the cooked barley for recipes where a healthy starch is included. Even good for baking :!:
A good carb but still a carb. ;)

:idea: Tomorrow's surmise: This barley water makes a great soup base! :roll
Steam veggies first then add barley water, spices, and cooked meat (if desired),
then simmer for flavors to blend (about 30 min.).

:idea: Further surmise: Barley water and green tea should be a great tonic! 8)
:idea: TMI surmise: Cooked barley and pumpkin puree makes a tasty whatever.

:study: Re: https://www.1mg.com/articles/did-you-kn ... al-stones/

LOL: This information hints that 6-8 cups of water would not be too much. :o
Best guess: Use 6 cups and dilute if too thick for drinkin'. :finger:

:study: Re: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/arti ... brain.html

"Just one dose of cannabidoil (CBD) was shown to improve blood flow to parts of the brain, a new small study suggests. Researchers found that the main non-psychoactive ingredient in marijuana increased blood flow to the hippocampus, the area of the brain responsible for memories and learning. It also increased blood flow to the part of section of the brain responsible for decision-making." 8)

:idea: This also suggests that other nutrition or supplements that improve blood flow to the brain may be equally effective
(and less expensive), like these: https://brainmd.com/blog/best-foods-brain-health/ ;)
