Our quick go-to b'fast is oatmeal, but soaked overnight instead of cooked in teh morning. It's a different texture than cooked, but ti's so good. Put desired amount of oats in your pan/bowl, just cover w/ water and stir in some raisins (they plump up, and make the oatmeal very sweet). Cover and leave overnight. You don't even need to warm it in the morning. This also makes a great hotel-room breakfast when traveling!

Leslie, what a great idea.  Ill have to remember this the next time were on the road.

I wonder if the overnight oatmeal and the breakfast couscous would work if made with milk instead of water. i don't like oatmeal made with water. Both great ideas however.

Robin - Im not sure how the couscous would taste with milk, but I think it would be worth it to give it a try.


Here's one for you that I took out of Yoga Journal (i think)
serves 4

3 cups Soy, Almond, Dairy Milk
1/2 cup Almond Butter or PB
dash of salt
raisins (i added these)
bring above ingredients to boil then add:
2/3 c Couscous
1/4 maple syrup (less or more)
I added cinnamon and pecans
Cover and let sit for at least 5 min

My boys (2 and 3 years) and husband eat it up without complaining :)

Jewish food has a long, rich history. Unfortunately, according to A Healthy Me, a website by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, "even in this cholesterol-sensitive era, few cooks have tried to trim the fat from Jewish food." Cooking healthy Jewish food is relatively easy with just a few simple steps designed to keep dietary balance in mind during the food-preparation process.

Binge eating does not happen in a vacuum. Your binge eating is your response to deep emotional pain that you need to process. Many trauma survivors, such as people with a history of abuse or neglect in childhood, binge eat to manage their emotions. Thanks.
