But for today:
I have mentioned my love for crackers and milk. I did not mention my respect of Oat meal. For a few weeks now I have added at least 2 tablespoons of raw oatmeal to my crackers and milk. It does not change the taste of course, but does help with my control of cholesterol.
I was taking a Statin and having lots of problems with cramps and muscle soreness. Finally I lost a muscle in my right arm. That did it. I dropped the statin and increased my oatmeal intake.
I knew oatmeal worked because once on an extended trip in Texas I found a clinic to check my blood. Then I over loaded on oatmeal for a couple weeks and had it checked again, the difference for me was amazing. The bad was down like 50-60 points. I started taking the statin later after I had sorta forgotten about the goodness of oatmeal.
Once I quit the statin Sherry started adding a couple tablespoons of raw oats to our normal cold cereal I think the name of ours is Honey bunches of Oats. I put raisins in mine and she always uses blue berries.
I usually have an apple at night and she a banana. We both like nuts to snack on.
Anyway, I am just singing the praises of oatmeal and my cholesterol has continued to be ‘beautiful’ according to my Doctor.
Pills scare me, BUT I would never tell anyone else to vary their doctor's orders. I won’t argue with Sherry either, she hands me a multivitamin daily and buddy, I take it.
