Not sure, but I think it might involve using a really, really big magnet.

I understand that in some Scandinavian countries, sausage is considered a vegetable.

A fellow climber suggested that I had to watch what I eat since with my small size and small appetite I had to make it all count.

So I got a great book and got as far as planning breakfast. It's not always cereal, but this thread asked about my cereal choice.

Read up on glycemic loads and glycemic indexes. Yogurt and a bagel will give you plenty of glucose quickly, but then its gone. Foods that have a longer glucose dispersion will give you energy for a lot longer. An ideal food has both a long steady dispersion of glucose and a lot of soluble fiber, which will make you feel full longer.

For the purposes of this thread, oatmeal (preferably the steel cut version) has a lot of soluble fiber and releases its glucose more slowly.




In the second part, around 2 minutes in, theres a nice explanation of this.

the best yogurt i've ever had was in switzerland.

In the US, Fage total (10% fat) is good. Locally here, there are creameries that make their own nice, tart yogurts.

We get Fage from Wholefoods by the case, then we get a 5% discount.
Fage USA

cerealwise --> cold: the best is my homemade granola.
but since I haven't had alot of time lately ( make that since ds was born), we eat Tierra Farms granola which we get through a co-op at $3.50/lb.
100% Organic Nuts, Seeds and Dried Fruit - Tierra Farm

hot cereal: McCann's oatmeal. The best tasting, steel cut too. Good plain, or mixed with random stuff. Unfortunately I usually have enough time to make it only on holidays.

Yes Arc.. I was devastated when Quisp disappeared. I mourned him. (Quake, OTOH was a pointless re-creation of Captain Crunch).

A very cool toy I got was a Quisp air gun that you'd fill with talcum powder to make a big "pooof!" (and drive your mother insane with the mess).


Also from the past, a big favorite was "Puffa-Puffa-Rice" (I think) with a Hawaiian/South Pacific theme.


Today I don't eat cereal for breakfast.. If I did I'd like Honey Nut Cheerios or even Regular Cheerios. Shredded wheat and mini-shredded wheat are excellent, too if they are fresh (in the past I remember getting some staler-tasting packages).

On mountain climbing days, I usually start with a veggie omelet and peanut butter on toast. An hour later I have a banana. An hour and half later I have a tasty half of a sandwich. I don't worry about it from there. I just can't eat the nuts and raisins a lot of people eat. I can't eat nuts and raisins on an empty stomach.

On 'good days' - two slices of 100% whole wheat toast with honey and green tea with an orange.

On my 'bad to the bone days(usually 3 times a week)' - a golden glaze apple Fritter/black coffee and a big bowl of B.S - with fellow retirees down at the the doughnut shop.

ladelfina - interesting that you mentioned Captain Crunch - it became a staple after Quisp disappeared. Another one in the rotation was Count Chocula! I think I've actually seen that still on the shelves.

Now I feel guilty for yelling at my kids for eating "sugar cereal." Going to go get them a box of Quisp!

Eh, the "bad" cereal isnt that bad anymore. On our last trip to the grocery store, I chose a box of nice organic cereal in an earth friendly box from the natural foods aisle for him, but when we were in the cereal aisle getting honey, he insisted on the box of "dora the explorer" cereal that he saw.

On getting home and looking at the ingredients and nutritional content, his pick won. The stuff I got was primarily corn and sugar syrup, the stuff he bought was whole grain/multigrain, vitamin and mineral enriched, had more fiber and was otherwise nutritionally superior in every way.

Oh, and it was half the price. :

Having an Apple Fritter 3 days a week, might not be that healthy (to put it nicely), but being social and having friends is healthy. Besides, we need you guys to solve the problems of the world!!

Cooking technique with oatmeal?

After seeing Khan's post on not cooking at 400 degrees if you can't open windows.... What i've been doing since the summer, when i didn't really want to be boiling a pot of water for 10 minutes, is to bring the water and craisins or raisins to a boil, toss in the oatmeal and bring back to a full boil, and then turn off the gas and cover for an appropriate time. Doesn't waste gas or add unwanted heat and humidity to the house, and makes for a really easy to clean pot - no sticking, no problem if you space the fact that you are cooking! How do you all cook your openmeal? Anyone make great quantities and then nuke the leftover as a neighbor does?
