No more oatmeal

India
March 25, 2011 5:27am CST
My wife and daughter in laws prepared dishes from oat meal as per direction on the packet and as per my advice to prepare dishes on the basis of responses from mylot friends. Honestly speaking , I don’t like to eat the stuff made from oat meal. I am fade up of eating things made from wheat and wheat products like suji and maida. Doctor friends, some were my student advised to eat cooked ‘soya-badi’ and ‘soya-nuggets’; these are made from soya beans from which oil is extracted. So I am taking these with my ‘roti’ and ‘paratha’. Some advised to take ‘roti, ‘chilla’ like ‘dosa’ and ‘paratha’ made, not from wheat flour, but from ‘besan’, this is flour made from ‘red horse gram’ after removing the outer skin. This also I am taking, they taste good. [i][b]Do you eat soya beans and soya bean products? In my place we can buy soya bean oil, soya-badi and soya nuggets, they are said to be good for health. I tried to search soya milk and curd made from this but they are not available here. Please share your opinion.[/b][/i] Professor ‘Bhuwan’. . Cheers have a lucky day ahead.

Hi professor.. I take oats (porridge) at least once a week. :) I never used to like it. But over the years, I've developed taste for it. :) I too dont like anything made from suji or maida. Soya.. I am sorry, I cant get it down my gullet. :) One of my aunt has been eating ragi flour and she said she succeeded in bringing down her sugar levels to normal. She can now eat everything, in moderation. She is continuing with ragi though. :) While constitutions differ from person to person, I am very glad for her, and hope that the same recipe works for me in case I have some sugar and obesity issues.

Hello professor, Oatmeal is one of the perfect foods, it is very nutritious and full of fiber which is very necessary for us to remain healthy. It can be eaten cooked or raw. To cook it just.. Boil one cup of water, add spices cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg if you like those flavours. Mix a quarter cup of oats with enough water to be able to pour it into the pot and then do that. Keep the flame low and stir occasionally until it thickens. You can make it thinner by adding more water or make it thicker by adding more oats (small amounts). Remove from flame and add milk of choice (Goat milk is also good for you), artificial sweetener (make sure it has no aspartame) and enjoy. I have oats everyday and I find that its very filling, if I am in a hurry I just add the milk and sweetener and have it cold. If you can find soybeans you can make your own soy milk. Soak them overnight in enough water to cover them, bring them to a boil and boil until soft, blend and strain. There is your soy milk. Unfortunately, I am allergic to soy so can no longer have any of the products. The allergy was triggered by a soy yogurt that I loved and probably had too much of it. There is a soy milk that I also loved called Silk. Amazing taste, but can no longer have it so I have rice or almond milk instead.

Hello again professor, how did the soy adventure go? did you make the soy milk?. Aspartame is in a lot of the artificial sweeteners (check the ingredient lists) except Splenda (thats the brand name) which is maltodextrin, sucralose and its a no calorie sweetener. This is the only one that does not increase your risk for cancer. The other manufacturers say that the amount of aspartame in their products is not enough to cause cancer but I don't care about that. As far as I am concerned, if it can cause cancer, it can cause cancer.They have recipes using Splenda at www.splenda.com. Your wife could try some of them for you to add a little more variety. I don't use Splenda myself but I have to buy it for my grandson who gets hyperactive on sugar. He loves it but to be honest I hate the taste of any of the artificial sweeteners. I have a wicked sweet tooth and have to really put out a lot of will power to resist the sweets and ice cream and chocolates. ( My mouth immediately started to water). mmmm,mmmm.

We have a grain here called quinoa which is very good for you--it has a sweet, nutty taste and can be made into a breakfast-cereal-type dish, although it is better unmashed and served as a side dish or part of a main meal. It is very high in vegetable protein. Have you heard of it? If it is available where you live, you should give it a try. I agree with you--oatmeal is tough to eat day after day!

Hi. Professor2010. I love oatmeal, I am sorry that you don't. I plan to buy some oatmeal this month. I have been having a craving of eating some. I only eat oatmeal without making it into a recipe. I could not imagine how oatmeal would taste combined into a recipe.

I like oatmeal, but I grew up with it. I am not fond of processed soy products, although I do like edamame, the green soybeans. I like brown rice. I know we have different things available different places, but wherever we live, the unprocessed, whole grain foods are healthier for us.

I agree brown rice is best, we call it 'usna' rice, there are several varities, like half boil, full boil, double boil ; again, rough, fine, super fine etc In my home we eat super fine, arua, white rice, just habituated since childhood. Thanks for sharing Cheers. BE HAPPY ALWAYS. Professor ‘Bhuwan’. .

Sir, I wished the soya milk was available around in bhubaneswar. It is available though but not regularly and I cannot have milk or its products. At hyderabad, I think, soya milk is available at the Big Bazar as I used to get it from there (i bhubaneswar) though not sure if there is any biz bazaar thing there at Hyderabad as it has been years that I roamed about there. But you can try to get it from the big shopping malls. Here at bhubaneswar, they used to get it regularly but since the prices rose to near 100.00, they stopped getting the newer packs saying that there are not many buyers for the same. Though the other soya bean products are availble, the Nutrela seems to be the best company for these

Luckily you found alternative which you really like. As long as you are eating healthy, i think nobody should be forcing you to eat what you dislike. Unless there are no other alternative and the things you dislike is the only treatment/cure for some illness you are suffering :p Good day and stay healthy always!

hi professor, soya is not very popular here except for the curd (we call tokwa in our dialect). there is taho also, but i do not know the english dialect. it is soft like texture, creamy color, delivered to you warm with sweet sago. most children love this. i still love oats. i can take it many times in a day. i just boil it and then add milk. also i add fruits. i get commercial cookies made of oats. its got a different taste from those made in flour. i also love it. ann

Hi tigeraunt, I love commercial oatmeal cookies too, but most of them have added sugar unfortunately, so professor won't be able to have those. His wife can make them at home using the artificial sweetener. 'Splenda' has a product that can be used for baking and his wife could use that.

hi carol, am glad we have the same sense of taste. i dont think it will hurt for the professor to just have a taste of it. just one or two and then his wife can make the homemade type. what do you think? ann

hi tigeraunt, unfortunately professor is not supposed to have sugar in any way or form and for his healths sake he has to stick to that. All carbohydrates are transformed into sugar once digested so he is getting some, but the healthy type.
