Yes, that is what I believe as well.
Wow, that is a really great idea. I will definitely try this. Thanks! How much of these do you add, 10%?, more?
I am amazed about the banana, isn't that huge amounts of sugar?
I used to adore peanut butter, but surely that can't be eaten on a low-fat vegan diet, as per Dr. Barnard.
I do the microwave cooking too and so I put about a 1/4 cups of rolled oats, about an 1/8 to a 1/4 cup of soy curl crumbs, a teaspoon of molassess and one date in a large bowl, microwave for 1.5 minutes then add about a 1/2 to 1 cup of mixed frozen berries or 1/2 cup wild blueberries, back into the micro for another 1.5 to 2 minutes, then I add the other ingredients including "powdered" peanut butter (so the fat content is way less).
When I make steel cut I use about 1/2 cup of steel cut oats and about 2 tbsps of rinsed split red lentils.
I do not eat at all until 12-2 pm and on alternating days I have my veggie, soy curl, noodley soup and again not until 12-2 pm. I work from home so this allows me the ability to eat this way. We eat just 2 meals a day and often our later one is small if I have the noodley soup for lunch.
