    I’m curious why this is considered a low carb alternative to oatmeal when one serving of steel cut oatmeal has less carbs.

      Sadie – This recipes actually makes about 3 cups of food – 1.5 cups per person. 1.5 cups of steel cut oats contains about 180 grams of carbs.

    I will have to agree with Sadie. This seems to be higher in carbs then should be in this meal plan. : (. I am trying to be in ketosis and certainly all that applesauce will kick me out.

    I agree with Sadie too many carbs per serving, not enough protein.
    applesauce 18gcarbs per 1.5 cups, 21 grams per cup for blueberries, peanut butter 11.5 carbs, 28 fat and 17 protein for a 1/4 cup. coco milk 12 fat, 1 protein, 1 carb. so divided by two servings is 25.75 carbs and 17.1 for 3 servings., 9 protein for 2 servings and 6 protein for three servings and fat2 servings 29.5 and 3 servings is 19.6. I don’t understand, this is way too many carbs… I don’t get it. please help me understand why this is ok?
