We are kindred spirits! Found your blog while researching steel cut oats and we eat all the same things! I have been with the WW points plus now for a little over a year now and just received my Lifetime status. My eating habits have definitely evolved over that time, but now having lost 140 lbs and looking back, I can see how all of these choices have added up to a monumental life change. Thanks for sharing your culinary adventures!

Well, crave no more. We're here to tell you that you can have your cereal and eat it too. The secret lies in the points. Weight Watchers points, that is. While you can join the WW program for weight loss, there are certain principles you can adopt when it comes to breakfast cereals without officially joining Weight Watchers.
What I love about this recipe is that it is vegan and the serving size is two cups! And it is zero points and weight watchers and you will actually earn +2 points from 2 cups of non-starchy veggies! Imagine getting points added to your day because you ate a meal!

The Weight Watchers system is a weight-loss program that allows users to track their foods based on a \"points\" system, which is then incorporated into a daily or weekly plan. One of the advantages of Weight Watchers is that it uses a single formula to calculate the points value for all foods.
At the crest of the hill travellers with even the merest embryonic aesthetic taste were forced to pause. For there the valley with its sweet loveliness lay in full view before them. Far away to the right, out of an angle in the woods, ran the Mill Creek to fill the pond which brimmed gleaming to the green bank of the dam. Beyond the pond a sloping grassy sward showed green under an open beech and maple woods. On the hither side of the pond an orchard ran down hill to the water's edge, and at the nearer corner of the dam, among a clump of ancient willows, stood the Old Stone Mill, with house attached, and across the mill yard the shed and barn, all neat as a tidy housewife's kitchen. To the left of the mill, with its green turf-clad dam and placid gleaming pond, wandered off green fields of many shading colours, through which ran the Mill Creek, foaming as if enraged that it should have been even for a brief space paused in its flow to serve another's will. Then, beyond the many-shaded fields, woods again, spruce and tamarack, where the stream entered, and maple and beech on the higher levels. That was one way to the mill, the way the farmers took with their grist or their oats for old Charley Boyle to grind.
Two hours later, down from the dusty sideroad, a girl swinging a milk pail in her hand turned into the mill lane. As she stepped from the glare and dust of the highroad into the lane, it seemed as if Nature had been waiting to find in her the touch that makes perfect; so truly, in all her fresh daintiness, did she seem a bit of that green shady lane with its sweet fragrance and its fresh beauty.
The mill lane was prinked with all the June flowers. Over the snake fence massed the clover, red and white. Through the rails peeped the thistle bloom, pink and purple, and higher up above the top rail the white crest of the dogwood slowly nodded in the breeze this sweet summer day. In the clover the bumblebees, the crickets, and the grasshoppers boomed, chirped, crackled, shouting their joy to be alive in so good a place and on so good a day. Above, the sky was blue, pure blue, and all the bluer for the specks of cloud that hung, still-poised like white-winged birds, white against the blue. Last evening's rain had washed the world clean. The sky, the air, the flowers, the clover, red and white, the kindly grass that ran green everywhere under foot, the dusty road, all were washed clean. In the elm bunches by the fence, in the maples and thorns, the birds, their summer preoccupations forgotten at the bidding of this new washed day, recalled their spring songs and poured them forth with fine careless courage. 153554b96e
