Today I am sharing a new recipe for No Cook Banana Oatmeal and I think it works pretty well for The Maker's Diet. I had it for my breakfast/lunch at 12:30 PM and it was absolutely delicious.
So now a little more about The Maker's Diet. I lost 12 pounds in the 10 days that I was on phase one. I gained back 2 pounds of it over first weekend off of it. That was due to me only not following the eating plan. I have found that Jordan Rubin is right about feeling the need to take a nap if my midday meal is too large. I have tried to do low carb diets for years, and I always fail, because I love carbohydrates, like pastries, bread, ice cream. Now on this diet, which isn't really a diet but a total change in eating habits, you are still restricted on carbs, but you get them. It's just that they are healthy carbs, like sprouted bread or sourdough bread, much more fruit, and there are not any fruits are bad for you, honey, coconut sugar, and other things, which do make it much easier to follow. I was out of town for a four days also, and I didn't gain any weight. For me this is a really great thing. I didn't even feel deprived. I have lost the 2 pounds, but have not lost anything else at this point, but I think 12 pounds in a two week time period is pretty good. The bigger deal is that I feel really good eating this way. I have no inflammation in my joints, even with eating the grains, so I have found that I can eat healthy sprouted grains. I have also learned to soak and dehydrate nuts and seeds, which has been interesting process. That was something I definitely had to learn how to do, but now, I wouldn't eat them any other way. It is very easy, though it does take a little time and planning. (that will be another post)
Basically, The Maker's Diet is just eating as much natural and organic food as possible. It also entails changing the time that I eat meals. So, I normally start with breakfast / lunch at about 12:30, I have a snack between 3:30 and 4:30 in the afternoon, dinner at about 6:30 PM, and a dessert at about 8:00 PM. His main thing is to eat your salad before your meal, and eat your sweets last. That works for me. Today, I didn't have a vegetable before my Banana Oatmeal, I'm hoping that's ok. My snack today will be a Grass Fed Cheddar Cheese and some of my Mary's Gone Crackers Original Crackers. (By the way, I have been eating these crackers for a while and I love them. They are crackers made of seeds. The only way they would be better is if they were sprouted also. But they are delicious.) I'm not sure about my dinner yet, but I'm making this Almond Butter Banana Ice Cream for dessert again tonight. I made it last night and it was amazing. That recipe will also follow in a later post (I forgot to take pictures).
Now on the my recipe for No Cook Banana Oatmeal.
No Cook Banana Oatmeal
1/3 cup gluten free rolled oats ( I used Bob's Red Mill)
1/3 cup heavy cream from Grass Fed Cows
1/3 cup goat yogurt, plain
2 TB raw honey
1/3 cup banana, cut into small pieces
Place the oats, cream, yogurt, and honey into an 8 oz mason jar, or other jar and stir.
Next, add the banana and stir again.
Then, you put the lid on the jar and let it sit overnight.
It's ready the next morning.
Makes 1 serving
I hope that you like this my No Cook Banana Oatmeal recipe. I am so excited about it, because I love oatmeal, and it's not something that I normally get on a low carb diet.
Anyway, I always love hearing from you. Let me know if you make this recipe, I would love to hear what you think about it.
Have a great week.
