From Carbohydrate Lecture: Several students emailed me for information about the Fiber crisps I talked about last time. Here is the one made with Oat Bran, and it better tasting than the one made with just wheat bran. As I indicated, only eat one at a time until you get used to them. They are very Powerful. Eating 3 of these over the course of an afternoon gave me a terrible stomach ache!
In today’s Nutrition & Health class (9-9-21) we discuss the 1st Foundation of Nutrition: Nutrient Balance Studies – Example: Vitamin C; McGuire Chapter 2 Slides – Dietary Reference Intakes (DRI) – Where do they come from? How are ULs determined? – usually from some mistake!
Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) are the not the most exciting aspect of Nutrition, but in way they are a continuation of the discovery of the vitamins and nutrients. They represent over 100 years of work in laboratories throughout the world.

How to Make Steel Cut Oatmeal for the week: Add one cup of Oats to 4 cups of boiling water; cook with stirring (gradually reduce heat) for 13 minutes, add raisins, and let sit for 10 min with occasional stirring; enjoy a bowl; after the oatmeal cools scoop unto some plastic wrap to make an oatmeal log; refrigerate immediately – lasts for about a week. I usually eat 1/4 of this for each serving – add Greek yogurt and dates as shown in the last photo.
