Food adventures: Oat groats and salad; keeping it simple

Posted by on September 4, 2013 at 7:15 am.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I’ll be going on a water fast for a few days. As I already mentioned, I’m not doing it for weight loss. I’m not overweight. I just like giving my digestive system a break now and again.

Since I thought it best to be mentally prepared I’m easing into it slowly. These days most of my foods are raw or lightly steamed.  The above dish was simple, oat groats with cinnamon, raw sunflower seeds and raisins. Simple but delicious. I really like oat groats it has a chewier texture than the traditional oats you find in most stores. It’s also minimally processed.

Later in the day I’ll usually have a bowl of greens. Not only are dark leafy greens healthy they’re quite delicious too. This salad had kale, spinach, tomatoes, shredded carrots, raw sunflower seeds and walnuts. I normally don’t use dressing, but for this salad I did add some balsamic dressing. My daughter and I loved this simple salad.

What’s on the menu today? I’m not sure, but I know I’ll have some type of smoothie. We have a lot of mangoes in our house, so that will definitely be added to the drink.
