So I may have hit on something I like even better than raw cacao chocolate – if that’s even possible? I wondered what would happen if I just left out the cacao powder and coconut oil when I was making my chocolate tweets (‘cos the coconut oil and cacao can be kind of overpowering) and ramped up the butter and nut butter content.
Aaaahhhhh! Oats are coming at me from everywhere – instagram recipe images, friends, daily health snippets and they are touting them as the healthiest breakfast to eat ever.
From the nutrition facts I can see a bit of Iron and a bit of magnesium, some protein and fibre and a whopping lot of carbs. Apparently they help reduce cholesterol in the arteries, something to do with the fibre.
More claims are that they digest slowly, making you feel more full for longer.
Then why is my experience with oats completely the opposite? Tell me that?
I don’t know about the southern states but here in Queensland summer has hit with a vengeance. We’re having 30°C (86°F) days most days even though it’s only mid Spring. So hot weather calls for nothing better than a nice ice-cream and it’s even more perfect when the dessert in question doesn’t derail your health and weight loss ambitions. I like it!
I found this quote on the wall of the Magic Apple Café, which is a fantastic little eatery in Burleigh Queensland serving amazing salads, wholefoods and kick ass healthy desserts. Salads with all kinds of goodness and things going on that I would look in envy and wish I would make them at home. See picture! Magic indeed.
