How I’m preparing my oats; Eye of round.

A couple people have emailed me recently asking how I’m preparing my oats these days. I’m not using milk or any kind of syrup or syrup-like products (or it would be shown in my food logs), but I do add a little Stevia and ground cinnamon. With 2 cups of cooked oats, I find that 2 packets of Stevia and a few shakes of cinnamon are about perfect. I used to use Splenda, but Stevia is a natural product and probably more healthy.

As long as we are discussing nutrition and food, I’d like to mention this recent thread on the forum. We’re discussing eye of round steak, and how to prepare it. If you’ve perused my current food log, you may have noticed that I’m eating eye of round five times per week. Eye of round is a very lean and fairly tough cut of meat. I’d never had eye of round before I started this cutting phase, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. It’s true that it is rather tough, but the taste is very good. I honestly don’t mind the texture at all. My favorite meal is easily the grilled eye of round, sweet potato and salad with olive oil. In the above-mentioned thread you can learn how some of us are preparing this great cut of meat.

Unfortunately I’ve recently been told that my consumption of eye of round will be reduced to just 3 times per week for the next four-week phase of my cut. That’s OK – it looks like fish will be added to my diet, and that will be a nice change, too. I should have my new food logs, which will cover the period from February 12th through March 11th, up within the next few days.

As always, thanks for visiting – I’ll see you tomorrow!
