Slow Porridge Recipe
5 cup water
1 cup oatmeal, * see note
1/2 cup dried fruit
1 dash ground nutmeg
1 dash ground mace
1 dash ground cinnamon
Recipe by: McDougall Place water, cereal, and dried fruit in slow
cooker. Stir. Cook on low for 8 - 10 hours. The mixture should be
like a thick soup, so do not add milk at the table.
HELPFUL HINTS: Each slow cooker is a little different from the
others, so you may have to adjust the amount of water needed.
For added flavor sprinkle a bit of nutmeg, mace or cinnamon, in any
combination. Try brown rice, barley, rye berries, whole oats, or wheat
berries. Cracked grains, such as oatmeal or cracked wheat, may get too
mushy for some tastes. From the collection of Sue Smith, S.Smith34,

Its extremely popular, but it is really safe for you?
Remember, one fact that is frequently overlooked, it is very difficult (although not totally impossible) for vegetarians to take up a low carbohydrate diet.
The majority of the undesirable side-effects observed, such as tiredness, stomach disorders, or headaches seem to be just temporary, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without permanently harmful side effects.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes eschalot, chives and spring onions)
The onion and garlic family of foods is high in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe may be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is very little real proof published, allyl sulphides are also thought by nutritionalists to reduce symptoms with blood circulation, sterilization and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also low in calories, so should be included in your weight loss regime.
