Whoa! All that carb would send me off the deep end. I guess kids have a higher metabolism? (I'm old.)
Thanks for your links. My doc says I can't eat potatos, but I hope to eat a sweet potato for Thanksgiing.!! I'm going to check them out. I'm not sure why I cant eat any carbs, cause I guess just "good carbs" like fruit and veggies. Who knows, this is all new to me. :)
i also do the steel cut oats in the crockpot. i add some red river cereal as well (flax, rye and wheat). but i just cook the cereal with a piece of vanilla bean then freeze in 2/3 c. servings (the vanilla adds a touch of sweetness that is super yum). in the morning i add 1/2 an apple and some almonds and nuke it for 3 mins.
i found that even tho this has more carbs than some of my other breakfasts i have to take less insulin to cover it and i stay fuller for longer as well. not too sure why?
