Cold cereal has NEVER held me over 4.5 hours like it did today! My best guess as to why today’s bowl was so effective? The omega-3’s in the walnuts and flax (or just the fats in general). I haven’t added those to cereal before, but I swear when I leave them out of oatmeal I get the same response – I get hungry about an hour earlier.
So I have an assignment for those of you who don’t normally eat flax or walnuts for breakfast – add one (or both) on a very typical day and let us all know what your experience is. Did you notice any difference in satiety? I’d love to hear some more “trials” to see if this theory is all in my head or not!
I’m here in the dark student union with rain pouring down and have a trek back across campus to make after this 🙁 But at least lunch was great! Carrots were appealing again, so I think I’m officially cured of my random illness, although they got kind of gross 75% of the way in and I didn’t finish them.
PB & J on oat/flax/walnut bread –
Carrots (again, I ate about 75% and am saving the rest for a snack)
Apples with cinnamon (I know, it looks gross with all the cinnamon and it’s hard to get good photos in this dark union!)
And Fage with almonds (I am really LOVING this combo!!! I think the almonds bring out the natural sweetness of the Fage…. or something…)
All together –
Lunch was about 500 kcal
Off to prep for lab and study physio, after I catch up on blog reading that is!
