Oatmeal
diet with acupuncture, oatmeal ingredients
Oatmeal is one of the best meals for breakfast. It is a low glycemic food which means that it is a slow-burning carbohydrate, and provides steady energy throughout the morning.
There are several types of oats to choose from and each is available at Whole Foods. The best are steel-cut oats, or you can choose coarse, rolled oats. Do not buy instant oats because they have been refined and processed and are high glycemic.
The easiest way to prepare the oatmeal is to cook it in a double boiler the night before:
1.  For each serving add 1/4 cup oats to one cup water and add a pinch of sea salt.
2.  Put the measured water in the top boiler, and add water to the bottom boiler.
3.  Bring both to a boil on separate burners.
4.  Add the oats to the top boiler and bring back to the boil for a few seconds.
5.  Put the top boiler on the bottom boiler with the lid on and let sit overnight.
The oats can also be cooked in an ordinary saucepan:
1.  Put water, oats, and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
2.  Simmer for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring frequently because oats will easily burn.
