    Every morning I eat steel cut oats and a boiled egg. Its not your typical oatmeal but once you get used to it, its hard to go back to the quick oat stuff.

    yeah it's good it's clean so you can do whatever you want to make it taste a little better. I cook it with Cinnamon now and sometimes I'll put some honey or PB2 peanut butter. It's un-sweetned so you need something to give it some flavor.

    I eat steel cut and rolled oats alternate between the two but I also eat the instant oats from Qauker just the un-sweetned original flavor. I alternate between them depending on how I feel and how quick I need to make it in the morning. The steel cut and rolled is always part of my daily meals, I have 6 meals a day. So I buy it in bulk cook it on the weekends and then put it in the fridge. So each day I put it in tupper ware for my meal. I've had it in shakes the raw uncooked oats it's good, nice source of protein but makes it thicker. You know it's funny before I started the weightloss and fitness journey I never ate egg for 10 years, drank about 3-5 sodas a day and anything sweet had my name on it. Cakes, chocolates, desserts those were my weakness. Now I eat an egg every day, I haven't drank a soda in over 6 months the only thing I drink daily is water and I don't eat sweets period. It has been quite a learning experience and a fun journey.

    I work 7 days away from home and 7 days off. The fist night I am home I usually cook about 4 days worth and boil 4 eggs at the same time. Then I set for a few days and then repeat the evening of the last day. I might drink a soda now and again but mostly black coffee in the morning and water during the day. I'm not dieting or anything, just the way I've always been. Dieting for me has more to do with exercise and portion control then anything else. Growing up in a house where my mom, step dad, and 1 of my brothers were diabetic influenced my eating habits, negatively at first during my teen years, but I never cared too much for sweets beyond a few bites every so often.

    I have really learned a lot we didn't eat really bad other than the soda and sweets every now and then but when I really started working out there was just so much I didn't know. We don't eat processed things like white bread and sugar use is almost non existent. I bought a bag of sugar when we moved into the house and 2 years later we still have not opened it. We don't use salt when we're cooking and drink skim milk so along with eating pretty regular portion it wasn't a HUGE change like I imagine it must be for some people. However the 6 meals a day, eating every 3 hours, learning about good fats, bad fats, and how excercise and diet plays together in acheiving goals has been such a cool thing to learn about.

    That's awesome! We drink soda only occasionally and my girls rarely have it as compared to their friends who drink it daily!! We limit sweets and try to make healthy meals...hubby and I walk about 2 miles a day, 100 'bicycles' a day and both my girls are active too (oldest is going to State for track this weekend ). Being active and 'everything in moderation' is how I do things!

    So I should have oatmeal and an egg for lunch?!!
    It all depends egg is a great source of nutrients, oats is a great source of protein with very little fat. I'm heading towards a goal so for that I'm getting as much protein as I can to build lean muscle mass and watching my fats to make sure I'm only eating good fats. I watch my carbs too but not as much, I eat good foods so not too concerned about my carbs. My meals today for example were:

    Breakfast
    Granola with skim milk
    1 glass of skim milk with whey protein
    1 boiled egg
    2 slices of Ezekiel bread (Cinnamon Raisin) - specialty bread high in protein and not overly processed

    Meal 2
    1/4 cup of cooked un-sweetened rolled oats

    Lunch
    1 Ezekiel wrap with 4 slices of lean chicken breast deli meat
    3 glasses of water
    1 greek yogurt naturally flavored
    2 rice cakes

    Meal 4
    2 slices of Ezekiel bread (Cinnamon Raisin)
    1 egg white omlette

    After workout snack
    12 raw almonds
    1 questbar

    Dinner
    1 salmon filet
    1/2 cup spinach instead of salad with balsalmic dressing
    1 cup of steamed vegetables
    2 cups of water

    Snack (Last Meal)
    1 shake
    1 cup skim milk
    whey protein
    PB2 peanut butter
    ground flaxseed

    Most of my meals daily have about 80% of this since I'm pretty repetitive with my food. This gets me a lot of protein, is 80-90% good fats and absolutely no trans fat. The thing about my diet is that I eat all the same foods I ate before I've just added to it with the exception of not eating sweets which were treats before so not really part of my daily diet. I know some people are rigid with their diet, they eat 100% clean, prep their meal for the week and don't deviate. I like to keep balance and with my food I can add foods or not eat foods to increase protein or decrease my sugar etc. So it all depends on your goals really.

    honestly written out like that it seems like a lot and for parents who have kids to deal with along with their own stuff it probably looks even worst. But I prep the omlette and the oats on the weekend it takes about 20 minutes and then they go in the fridge. Everything else it takes me about 5-10 minutes in the morning to throw the stuff into containers and put it in my lunch bag. When we do food for dinner we usually will do a whole bunch of salmon fillet and I can take them for lunch or eat it for dinner so we're not cooking every single night. Basically it's a lot easier than it reads lol

    middbrew a grilled cheese sandwich is definitely high on my list especially with sharp cheddar and good sourdough bread.... Oh comfort food at its best!
    Sharp cheddar is a mush. I really like them with sauteed onions mixed in with the cheese.
