A delicious, easy staple in our house: steel-cut oats. Cooked overnight so they only need to be warmed up in the morning. Today, they were a bit dry, so I added a splash of soymilk. And then a little bit of honey and pumpkin pie spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, clove, and ginger- lots of ginger- I always add extra ginger as it has anti-inflammatory properties). I topped it off with canned pure pumpkin (also with honey and pumpkin pie spice) and a dollop of plain Greek yogurt. Then drizzled everything with sorghum syrup and sprinkled some more… you guessed it… pumpkin pie spice. Bam! Pumpkin pie for breakfast.
Unfortunately, I’ve had no improvement since yesterday with my oral lesions or thrush. And eating was extremely painful. I was only able to eat about a fifth of the bowl, and gave up, exhausted. But I gotta get my nutrition somewhere. So I whipped up a major immune booster: carrot and orange juice.
That should hold me over until lunch.
