This is thought to be a variational theme on the all time classic Oatmeal. Read and be inspired.

Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type A (3 beneficials)
  • Type A Non Secretor (2 beneficials)
  • Type AB (1 beneficials)
  • Type AB Non Secretor (1 beneficials)
  • Type B (1 beneficials)
  • Type B Non Secretor (0 beneficials)
  • Type O (1 beneficials)

  • Breakfast

  • 1 dl Oats
  • 3 dl water
  • 1 spoonful of sugar [or agave]
  • dash of sea salt
  • 1-2 spoonfuls of raisins, dice prunes (dried apricots works well too)
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon (crushed seeds of 1 green cardamom pod along with a dash of vanilla sugar works best with the apricots)
  • ½ apple, diced or shredded

How to make it:
  1. Put the ingredients in a pot and heat on the stove.
  2. Cook it under continuous stirring for 2-3 minutes. Be careful not to let it burn to the bottom of the pan. Adjust heat to low and add more water if you like.
  3. Let it rest and cool of under a lid for 3-5 minutes, if you can wait that long.
  4. As explained in the ingredients section, there are a lots of variations on this timeless classic. Be sure to try the cardamom & vanilla with apricots at least once in your life - its an entirely new thing.
  5. NB. Be sure to get the real cinnamon, when using cinnamon. Cassia Bark is unhealthy because of the toxic coumarine. True cinnamon is very healthy.
  6. Watch out, as there are a jungle of different latin names for what is sold as cinnamon. Go for Cinnamomum Zeylanicum or C. Verum and you will the real stuff.
