October 17

So yesterday I questioned the FRUCTAN in the breakfast cereal.  Spent some time reading all sorts of articles, blogs, with both pros and cons.  One,, even goes as far of listing different fruits & veggies I should avoid because of them.  Apparently, a fructan is a naturally occurring part of our food, that our intestines can't digest.  Big cause of stomach & intestinal problems for sensitive people. Not sure how to kitchen test this ingredient, since the ingredients specifically name a brand & that is sold in vitamin form.  May take this query to the Facebook group and see what wisdom they can offer.

Breakfast: made the steel cut oats I was craving...the cereal can wait. :) added a bit of organic skim milk to thin, cinnamon & blueberries. Yum!!

Morning Snack: strawberry Chobani

Lunch: toasted whole wheat bagel with melted cheddar cheese and Applegate uncured ham.

Afternoon Snack: nothing...not hungry!

Dinner: roasted pork tenderloin, steamed broccoli, brown rice

Evening Snack: wine. :)

Happy Eating!
