 27 Jan 2009 02:48 PM Hello, I made the baked oatmeal yesterday and it tastes amazing! i poured it into 2 small cake pans and it rose about 2 inches, and then divided the cakes into 8 rectangle bars. On the recipe it says that the baked oatmeal makes 4- 3 block meals. What does this mean? Does it mean that 2 of my rectangle bars contain 3 carb blocks, 3 protein blocks, and 3 fat blocks? or does it mean that they contain 1 carb block, 1 protein block, and 1 fat block? please help me out!

 27 Jan 2009 04:52 PM Hi Emma!If the whole contains 4 3-block meals that is 12 blocks, which means 12 P plus 12 C plus 12 F. If you split that into 8 portions, each of the 8 portions contains 1.5 blocks, which means 1.5 P plus 1.5 C plus 1.5 F (12 divided by 8 equals 1.5). 2 of your rectangle blocks contain 3 p plus 3 C plus 3 F (1.5 plus 1.5 equals 3).

 15 May 2009 06:48 AM HELP! I made the baked oatmeal from the zone recipe page... It called for 2 cups of egg substitute. I wasn't sure if it was 2 liquid cups or 2 little egg substitute cups. It seems like 2 liquid cups would be a lot of egg plus the protein powder would be a lot of protein. I used 2 little egg substitute cups. It came out like oatmeal bread... Can someone clarify?

 20 Dec 2011 04:26 PM Please correct me if I am wrong. But I see fat only in spray for nonstick pan and in a cup of milk. I can add nuts for fat and no problem. But I wanted somebody to check if it's really correct blocks of carbs and proteins...

 12 Jan 2012 08:53 AM Thank you for new recipe. It's really very zoned now. I just want to share my update on this recipe which will give good taste, nice prezentation and still keep Zoners balanced. I don't like to use protein powder in baking. I prefer to eat it with cottage cheese or Greek yogurt on the site or eat boiled egg before. I changed blueberry and strawberry to apple and cranberry. Oatmeal goes together with apple and cinnamon very well and cranberry just for color, a little sour and great taste. You can add any berries you like. Also I use walnuts, it's soft and crunchy, soo good, TRY and ENJOY. 2 cups still cut oats 2 teaspoon sugar 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 cups eggbeaters whites(from trader joes 100% beaters whites cage free) 1 cup plain yogurt 1 cup apples peeled and cubes 1 cm 1 cup walnuts , big pieces is fine Cook , cut into nice pieces and let it stay in fridge few hours. Oatmeal taste will disappear at all. Your guests will not even know its oatmeal. I offer to my guests to put spoon of honey on the top who is not Zoners at all and they like it. I try to update avatar again from IPAD and it's not working.

 20 Aug 2012 11:04 AM hi cranberry cat! i think you may be a good person to ask this of - when a recipe says 1 cup cooked oatmeal, does that mean i start with 1 cup of oats & then cook them? or its is 1 cup after they are cooked as it would take more to cook them to get to the 1 cup cooked? does that make any sense? thanks, Julie

 20 Aug 2012 11:30 AM Hey (not CranCat but) Cooked means already cooked. 1 cup cooked is about 1/4 cup steel cut oats and 3/4 cup water. (3:1 ratio water to oats.) . You can make ahead, as in this recipe: . 1 cup oats here. This will make enough for 3 to 5 servings. Remember, when you make steel-cut oats you really should make enough for a whole week, or at least several days. Unlike gluey, sticky rolled oat oatmeal, steel-cut oatmeal is great when reheated the next day. It just gets creamier — not ickier. So make a big pot and eat out of it all week. . Ingredients 1 teaspoon butter or olive oil 1 cup steel-cut oats 3 cups water 3-fingered pinch salt 1 cup milk (optional) . Tools 2-quart saucepan . Instructions 1. Start this the night before you want to have steel-cut oatmeal. Measure out your oats. This quantity will make about 4 servings. 2. Heat about 1 teaspoon butter or olive oil in a 2-quart saucepan set over medium heat. Add the oats and fry them for about 3 minutes, or until they start smelling toasty. 3. Pour in the water and add the salt. Stir. 4. Bring to a rolling boil. 5. Turn off the heat and cover the pan. Leave it on the stove, and go to bed! 6. The next morning, uncover the pan and bring the oatmeal back up to a simmer. If you would like thinner and creamier oatmeal, stir in a cup of milk before reheating. When the oatmeal is warm, scoop out and enjoy! . Additional Notes: • Cover and refrigerate any leftovers. • Re-heat leftovers in just the same way: warm up on the stove, or in a bowl in the microwave. ~john --> Happily married 26 years --> 07 Feb 1986 <>< <>< <>< <>< PTL Col 3:23-24 ><> ><> ><> ><> Live the healthiest life you can enjoy, not the healthiest life you can tolerate.

 20 Aug 2012 11:33 AM Perfect Steel-Cut Oats serves 2-4, depending on how hungry you are! . 3 cups water 1 cup steel-cut oats pinch of salt . Bring the water to a boil and stir in the oats and salt. Let the water and oats come back to a boil then reduce to medium-low heat. Let the oats simmer with the lid slightly ajar, stirring frequently until cooked through: - 20 minutes for chewy oats - 30 minutes for softer oats. . Stir in extras like milk, sweeteners, nuts, and fruit off the heat in individual bowls. Leftovers keep for one week. ~john --> Happily married 26 years --> 07 Feb 1986 <>< <>< <>< <>< PTL Col 3:23-24 ><> ><> ><> ><> Live the healthiest life you can enjoy, not the healthiest life you can tolerate.

 20 Aug 2012 02:01 PM I am different, 1-1/2 Tbl is 1 block Fav Carbs, raw. I like it raw, and eat it that way about 2 and sometimes 3 1 block servings per week. Sometimes straight, sometimes sprinkled on a dinner salad, and sometimes in a breakfast smoothie, but mostly chew on it raw. . Last winter, I used to microwave it occasionally; however, I am minimizing use of the microwave. When i did, i added frozen wild blueberries, and a touch of pure NH/Vermont maple syrup. (We live in New England.) And though unfavorable, in small amounts, less than 25% as unfavorable, pure maple syrup has been found to have at least 17 beneficial nutrient ingredients. (and more...) Some times I mixed an equal amount of Protein Powder and EVOO to get a balanced meal. This winter, we will probably try the overnight recipe, so my wife cam eat it before work, and heat it up other days - without having to use the microwave. (I work from home, so more flexible...) ~john --> Happily married 26 years --> 07 Feb 1986 <>< <>< <>< <>< PTL Col 3:23-24 ><> ><> ><> ><> Live the healthiest life you can enjoy, not the healthiest life you can tolerate.

 12 Apr 2013 09:37 AM I am stumped -- the baked oatmeal recipe I see on the website: http://www.zonediet.com/0/zonediet/...emid/2398. calls for 1/2 cups of slivered almonds. if 1 tsp of slivered almonds is one block (0.02 cups), this works out to 25 blocks of fat!!!! How can that be considered in the zone? By my calculations this recipe also has about 11 blocks of C and 11 blocks of P. Also, I have been looking for a good iPhone App or website where I can punch in the ingredients and the amount (g or cups or teaspoons or ounces), and get the blocks calculated for me of P,F, C. Anyone know of one? I see lots of websites that will calculate my block needs -- I don't need that, that is easy. I need something ongoing that I can use to adapt recipes to Zone diet. Thanks!

 12 Apr 2013 10:43 AM Remember 1 Block of Fat is 1/2 of the Fat required for 1 Block of Protein. 11 Blocks of Protein requires 3 grams fat x 11 blocks = 33 grams fat. With 25 Total Blocks fat - that is actually 12-1/2 equivalent blocks of fat per 11 blocks Protein. And a little additional fat is OK. ~john --> Happily married 26 years --> 07 Feb 1986 <>< <>< <>< <>< PTL Col 3:23-24 ><> ><> ><> ><> Live the healthiest life you can enjoy, not the healthiest life you can tolerate.

 12 Apr 2013 10:44 AM Put another way: 11 Blocks of Protein is 11 Zone servings of Protein. 25 Blocks of fat is 12.5 Zone servings of Fat. ~john --> Happily married 26 years --> 07 Feb 1986 <>< <>< <>< <>< PTL Col 3:23-24 ><> ><> ><> ><> Live the healthiest life you can enjoy, not the healthiest life you can tolerate.

 12 Apr 2013 04:28 PM I am still stumped. The "Enter the Zone" book, the original, has an equal number of blocks of protein, carbs, and fats (see p. 88). For for each block of protein (7 g) and each block of carbs (9 grams), you should have 1 block (1.5 g) of fat. "Each fat block containes approximately 1-1/2 grams of fat", p. 87. So I think you are confusing an equal number of grams of P,C,F with an equal number of blocks of P,C,F; blocks are not equal to grams. I am calculating the blocks of fat, carbs and protein in the entire baked oatmeal recipe, because I wanted to divide it into 1 block servings to use as an on-the-go snack when hiking. So if there are 11 blocks of protein and 11 blocks of carbs in the oatmeal recipe (which is what I estimate), then there should be 11 blocks of fat in the recipe, not 25 blocks of fat. The recipe uses 2 tsp. of olive oil, which is 6 blocks, then using 2% milk (1 cup = 5 g of fat; in addition to the blocks of protein in milk) or 3 blocks of fat (1 block is 1.5 grams so 3 grams is just over 2 blocks). So 6 + 2 = 8 blocks of fat without the nuts. I am guessing the recipe meant 3 tsp. of slivered almonds, or something similar to add 3 more blocks of fat to bring it up to 11 blocks of fat to match the protein and carbs. 3 blocks of almonds is 3 tsp. of almonds, not a half a cup.

 12 Apr 2013 05:14 PM That's because low-fat protein has about 1.5 grams of Fat per 7 grams Protein. However, when using no-fat protein or when calculating total fat in a meal, one needs 3 grams of fat (2 Fat blocks) per 7 grams Protein (1 Protein blovk). So, essentially total Zone fat serving per 1 block of Protein is 3 grams Fat. ~john --> Happily married 26 years --> 07 Feb 1986 <>< <>< <>< <>< PTL Col 3:23-24 ><> ><> ><> ><> Live the healthiest life you can enjoy, not the healthiest life you can tolerate.
