This morning I made my oatmeal--1/2 cup oats, and too much water...I cooked it and cooked it but still too runny...so it occurred to me to add a little bit of cornstarch (diluted in a little cool water) like gravy or something..it worked and it was one heckuhva lotta food....I added a cup (yep, whole cup) blueberries and wow...BIG portion..
It occurred to me then--why can't I do this every morning...calories were somewhat minimal--15 calories for a teaspoon--sodium ZERO..
Anyone else ever done this??? Any pitfalls here I am not seeing? I loved it--huge amount food for notta lotta calories.
