I have never really fancied eating oats, though I eat it pretty often, for health sake. I have genetic high cholesterol and oats are one of the most readily available and affordable foods that can help to bring down bad cholesterol level. Thankfully Cass likes eating oats. While her two sisters have toasts for breakfast every morning, she’s happy with a cup of hot sugar-free cocoa drink with fresh milk and organic oats.
This reminds me that I must fix an appointment with my doctor to check my cholesterol reading again! What I HATE about getting cholesterol levels checked is the darn fasting for over 10 hours. That’s my number 1 turn off. I don’t understand why most doctors never come into their clinic on time!!
Note to self: must stop procrastinating!
Today I had organic rolled oats with vegetarian crispy floss for breakkie. I like to experiment combining a variety of foods to break the monotony of having food prepared the same way over and over again. And this combo is for keeps. I love it! The lightly salted and crispy vegetarian floss with seaweed and sesame seeds add a lot of flavors and texture to the otherwise dull and tasteless oats. I love food that is crispy and this combo sure beats the boredom of eating oats hands down!
Nature Quest’s vegetarian crispy floss can be purchased from organic shops, Cosway outlets and selected supermarkets. I got mine from the organic foods section of De Market.
I add the crispy floss to spice up porridge, as filling for sandwiches and tossed onto fried rice, noodles, salads and yoghurt. Crispy Floss can also be used as one of the ingredients for sushi.
