Rolled Oat, based breakfasts.
1/3 cups rolled oats covered with 100 ml of low fat, unsweetened, live culture yogurt and a springing of nuts and seeds, plus fresh fruit is my staple breakfast most mornings.
Quick Microwave Porridge.
Reg’s variation on this is to put a cup of hot water and skim milk powder on the rolled oats, then microwave it for one minute, leave it to sit for another minute in the microwave then add fruit and serve.

I started a healthy eating plan with others. Some are saying they are having a lot of wastage.
I do not have any wastage that I couldn't have avoided by reading the shopping list and making changes before I purchased.
But, I've gone from never drinking sherry to a granny who is having a nip of sherry, because I hate waste, and I bought a bottle for cooking purposes, and it has a one-month shelf life before it becomes expensive vinegar.
After that first week where I bought white flour—which I won't use, and stock powder-which I'll not use due to the WSG content, I'll just adapt the menus to what is practical for me. I have enjoyed the food prompts though, so Don't blame the program for wastage, it is easy enough to go through and read what's on the list and make substitutes.
I'll pay more attention to what I'm buying next time—I have not ordered week two as yet. I still have heaps of bread, and yogurt-no need to shop until they are low. I will not repurchase alcohol, or white flour or processed foods that I won't keep in my cupboards.
