Yes, I do - my mum always did, so I just roughly follow what she did. It's basically (I don't measure) 5-6 parts oats to one part each of wheatgerm and oatbran.  We like it toasted, so I mix a little honey in oil, heat it (makes it go further, so you don't need as much) and mix it through the oats etc,  then toast in a moderate oven for about 20 -30 mins, stirring every now and again. After it's toasted I add extras: raisins, apricots, chopped almonds and cashews, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, coconut, bran flakes or whatever I have of the above. And I sometimes add flaxseed as I serve it. F loves it!

Today was not such a brilliant day - weekends we're often out and about so not so many veges!

B: muesli, nibble of toast with peanut butter.
s: banana
L: out at an Indian restaurant, so mostly rice and naan ::) A bit of dhal and fish curry.
s: apple, guava, milk
d: pasta with bolonaise sauce, broccoli.

Yesterday
B: muesli, watermelon, papaya
S: home-made fruit and nut bar, milk
L: spinach and herb pasta w bacon.
S: Pumpkin muffin, sip of my green smoothie
D: Prawn curry (super spicy, oops! So lots of coconut milk added), rice, naan. Cucumber.

Today:
Breakfast: muesli, piece of toast with vegemite
Snack: banana, milk
L: Toasted cheese and spinach sandwich, piece of corn, few bits of carrot. Papaya
S: Cracker, milk
D: African beans w rice and naan, broccoli. Ate a bit of everything, but not much of anything except naan ::). Apple crumble w coconut cream.

I feel like F hasn't been eating a lot of veges lately, and I think it's partly my fault for not preparing as complete meals recently when I've been so knackered. Have to be a bit more proactive about offering them in interesting ways, as well as hiding more for insurance!
