Sailors Daily Oatmeal — Definitely a 4-Leaf meal
As with all meals, I never eat until I get hungry. After a delicious bowl of fresh fruit at either 7 or 8 a.m., my body’s signal that it’s time to eat again comes between 10 and 11. That’s when I have my Sailors Daily Oatmeal shown shown here.
It features a big pile of fresh fruit on top of old-fashioned oatmeal that soaks in a mixture of cold water and vanilla-flavored almond milk (unsweetened, of course). While the oats and raisins are soaking, I have time to cut the fruit that goes on top.
By the way, there is no cooking involved — that’s right, I eat it cold; a trick I learned from Dr. Esselstyn and his wife Ann in their summer home in Claverack, NY in 2009. I now enjoy my oatmeal course more than ever. You should try it.
For this nutritious 4-Leaf meal, the fruit on top was blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, apple and banana. To that, I added a few sprinkles of Uncle Sam brand whole wheat berry flakes with flaxseeds…and some cinnamon on top. Yummy.
