Oatmeal Yucca Bread

Here’s what my famous Neurologist brother says about the herniated disc: “Swimming is ideal for a herniated disc, Dot. Start with waist-deep wading 15 minutes, three times a week. Then progress to either holding on to the side of the pool or kickboard and kicking. If you can get up to freestyle swimming, you should be in good shape. Advil is far safer than other meds.”

The non-impact element combined with the exercise and blood flow will do wonders. Just be careful not to over fatigue the muscle groups. Maintain an easy adaptive stage. 

D- Okay! I will do exactly you as you say.

is it true that it can actually start healing, Pat?

P -Absolutely……just slowly…..

  1. Hi.. I was wondering, and please pardon my ignorance… what is the difference between oats and rolled oats? I mean, in buying here in EC. I’m in Salinas and all I ever see is oatmeal. This looks awesome for gluten free so I would like to make for our gluten intolerant guests.

    1. Hi Kate, The rolled oats are rolled and pressed slightly thinner than rolled oats, so they cook faster.
      Regular oats aren’t processed as much. The rolled are more expensive. And they’re pretty much gluten-free, all of them. Even if they’re next to a wheat field, the gluten
      that would blow over only affects 1 part per million. Maybe that’s why they taste so good here!
