  1. I love Steel cut oatmeal in the morning which usually keeps me full until about 1pm. What are the best or lightest protein bars for women? I find that they tend to put weight on me..

    • Look for a protein bar that is low in carbohydrates, has less than 15g of sugar, 3 to 5 grams of fiber and is low in calories. It should also be a minimally processed bar that is made from organic ingredients.

  2. Okay, these recipes seem delicious and doable. I already do the Greek yogurt and berries and also the oatmeal with berries.

  3. Really interesting and one of a kind post. I like things such as
    making more study, developing writing skills, plus related things.
    All these help in being a qualified person on this topic.
    Your posting is very helpful to me personally because people like you
    devoted time to learning. Regularity is the key.
    But it is not too easy, as has been made
    out to be. I’m not really an expert like you and plenty of times I feel like just giving it up. Looking at a person like me, your post is of good support and booster. Thank you sharing.
