Oat Bran is the secret weapon ingredient for raw food enthusiasts and it is entirely too often overlooked. A super food, Oat Bran is distinct from its near neighbors in the oat family — Oat Meal, Steel Cut Oats and Rolled Oats. The benefits of those other oats are a discussion left for another day. The actual recipe to preparing oat bran is just add water, put in microwave and heat until you see the water near fully evaporated. The difficult aspect here tends to be simply finding Oat Bran for sale. Once cooked, add Stevia, cinnamon and perhaps some hemp protein to taste, and stir until evenly distributed. You’ll find a taste and satiation you never thought possible from healthy food.
Onion, cabbage and egg combos are a delight unknown to many purveyors of junk food. You can try starting with a medium-heated frying pan, with some olive or coconut oil splashed in it. Cut up an onion and a section of a cabbage to where you have roughly as much cabbage, once cut, as you received from your cut onion. Put that in the pan with the oil and allow it to simmer and sauté for as long as you can, always stirring the ingredients, but not allowing it to char. Once you have the vegetables nicely browned, you’ll notice they’ve taken on a bit of a sweeter taste. Then, prepare the egg any way you normally would and place it on or next to the vegetables on a plate or in a bowl, as you see fit.
Now that you have two excellent recipes in your repertoire, you can start down the path of making new, healthy habits.
