Making instant food more satisfying: Instant breakfasts, slimfast drinks, and such benefit from

using almond milk as the base and adding 3-4 T of Ovaltine.

Serve with side dish of shelled sunflower-seed nut butter (protein) & a side dish of full bodied sweet sorghum (which contains potassium and iron).

Use the chocolate drink as a chaser after small spoons full of sunflowernut butter and/or little spoons of sorghum. Savor.

Any seed or nut- butter would be good.

Pure maple syrup or raw honey would be good too.

chutneys and jams.

crackers.

yum!!!

1. I add Oat Fiber to morning Smoothies

It's very low in Calories and Carbs plus it's Fiber! It makes those smoothies much more filling and really has very little taste.

Here's the kind I use....But there are many other options out there as well if you Google. Or ask at your local Health food store or coop

4. Sorghum in general is good food, in moderation, and that brand Maasdams is especially luscious.

Sorghum also has phorsphorus and maybe magnesium(?) selenium (?) and iron and other minerals.

Ginger-root is good for troubled stomachs and I think cinnamon too.
