Keto Hot Cereal
Prior to going low carb, I loved oatmeal. It was one of those warm, comforting breakfasts that left me feeling warm and satisfied inside. I mourned over the fact that oats were just too high in carbs for me. It would cause my blood sugar to spike leaving me quite hungry within an hour after eating. That's why I'm so very excited to share this hot comfort breakfast today!
Learning how many carbs your own body can handle takes a little time and effort. Some people do wonderfully at 100 net carbs per day. But if you're trying to lose weight, at least for me, having 20 net carbs per day is ideal for my body. If you're just starting out on a low carb diet, I would highly suggest looking over different Atkins eating approaches which has options at 40 or 20 net carbs. It's a great way to educate yourself and it's all free on their website! Their new book, Eat Right Not Less also outlines an approach for 100 net carbs (you can learn more about Atkins 100 here). They website also has great info on Hidden Sugars you may not realize you're eating.
I've learned that 40 net carbs is still too high an amount at the point I am in my life. I'm 46 and at a normal weight, but I want to change the muscle tone and lose body fat, even if the number on the scale doesn't move. I've been working at 20 net carbs for the last month and it's not as hard a transition as I thought it would be. The key is really finding out what works for you, everyone is different, but avoiding a high carb diet is the best thing you can do, in my opinion, for your body and for your health.
While this hot breakfast cereal might not exactly taste like the old-fashioned oats or cream of wheat you may remember eating, it is just as filling and satisfying! I must share that my husband is an on and off type low carber, so when he tried this I wasn't sure how he'd like it.
He said, "I love the texture and taste that I want to eat more of it!" And from him, that is as good as it will get and that is enough for me! If you have a reluctant spouse who's not fully committed to a low carb life style, I know you can relate!
Hope you enjoy this hot breakfast oatmeal!
