What do you make your muesli with? Without oats and fruit I'm lost. But then you talked about apple pie, so you do eat fruit.

Yes, I eat fruit, but not so much as in the good old day where I could eat fruit after fruit after fruit.....
My musli is quite simple actually. It is made from the principle: use what you have. Sometimes its quite simple,with just a few ingridients.
but i prefer to mix several types of nuts minimum 2-300 gram and coarse chop them, flaxseed, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, coconut mass, some large oatmeal, barley flakes and i use just a little honey (max 2 ss), some good oil (5 ss) and water (3 dl) and uses my hand to mix everything together. I makes about 3-4 litres musli each time.
Then I put it in the oven (225 degrees celsius) for about 25 minut. When its beginning to be light brown I stir in it so it dont get burned.
The large oatmeal and the barley flakes has many carbs, but their Glycemic Index is low, so I can eat some of this without raising my bloodsugar. Of cours you can skip the large oatmeal and/or the barley flakes if you want to.

If you would like to make the easiest apple pie ever, here is how I do:
I use butter in a pieform, covers the bottom of the pieform with thin applepieces (usually I use 5 apple), have some cinnamon over the apple. Cover with musli (about 3 dl) and then I use the cheese slicer and put pieces of real butter (about 50 gram) on top of the musli.
After 20 minut in the oven (200 degrees celsius) its ready.
Tastes fantastic with some whipped cream.

I went to Netrition, does this look like the right thing?
NOW Foods Psyllium Husk Powder

If not a powder, is it a liquid?

I wonder if the powder isn't what we know from Metamucil-type products that turns to a gel when you mix it with water? I'm going to be looking for something that actually looks like husks or hulls. How am I doin' so far, Optimist? Pat? Moon?

You're on the right track. It's not a powder, but much finer than what I thought of as a husk or hull. My sense is that you go by terminology and it should say 'husk' on the packaging since this isn't something you find in bulk (at least not here, and this is organic mecca) Whole Foods had many variations, none of them visible behind the curtain of the container.

Btw - I had 2 guests for dinner tonight. Both asked for the recipe. Neither are diabetic (but certainly diabetic sympathizers.) I had maybe 3-4 small crackers with artichoke dip, the two of them ate half the whole recipe. They were a definite hit!

Okay, Shanny et al, what I'm using is Yerba Prima premium whole husks. It claims to be a colon cleanser and is a mealy kinda grind...not as fine as flour, but coarser. I'd wonder if you can't find it in a drugstore. They have a website:Yerba Prima - Welcome. Maybe this will help?

By the way, don't get carried away with too many crackers at a time...was it Gizmo who asked me about 'side effects'? They work well, it seems!

Uh-oh!!! Well, it will be worth it to be able to have crackers in my beanless chili again.

I'm just hoping Moon's friends don't hate her in a day or two!

Not that bad, really, just what I needed!
