The Update on Oats
The recipe of the overnight oats in one of the posts last week had to be tested and reviewed, so last night I put about 40 grams of oatmeal into a jar and filled it up halfway with coconut milk. This is not the heavy coconut cream that comes in little packages and is often used in Thai/Asian sauces, but the light coconut milk in the 1 litre package (usually around 20 kcal/100 ml). Stirred it and then just set it away in the refrigerator overnight.
Eating Clean and Being Creative
The Eat-Clean principle came across my path about 12 years ago when I picked up a book called The Eat-Clean Diet, from Tosca Reno.
About Oatmeal and Stress
"Oatmeal is warm and comforting-and it also helps your brain generate the destressing neurotransmitter serotonin," says Albertson. Research in the Archives of Internal Medicineshows carb-eaters felt calmer than those who shunned carbs. The carb-avoiders reported feeling more stressed. Any carb won't do, however. Refined carbs (white bread and pasta) digest faster and spike blood sugar, messing with moods and stress. Complex carbs like oatmeal are digested more slowly and don't spike blood sugar.
