  1. This was fascinating! Thank you very much. Question: When you prepare your jook on the thermos for overnight cooking, do you add the eggs, too? Do you refrigerate the whole thing? Do you warm it up in the morning? I like to add blueberries or strawberries to my oatmeal, and I don’t use any sweetener. What do you think of berries?

  2. what is in the picture above? Oats with s piece dried apple? is there a recipe you can share?

  3. Thanks for this video! I put my grains, healthy fat, a pinch of salt, spices, dates or raisins, etc. in the bowl of my rice cooker at night, then drop it in and turn it on in the morning. It cooks while I get ready for the day, then I top it with nuts, chopped apples, shredded coconut, or other fruits. Yummy and filling!

  4. You are speaking my language!!! I am going to start this over night. The nicest aspect to visiting Vancouver had to have been the congees on the breakfast table at the hotels! These are written in a book called Healing with Whole Foods by Pritchard, but you got me to set my congee up to cook over night, with some jujube! Good Qi!

  5. Thanks! I’ve been eating a porridge made of chia, banana, and dates or prunes. The ideas you offered are a good addition on my morning recipes. I’m especially looking forward to trying the thermos method. I think this may be a good take-along for my morning hike in the woods.

  6. I am one of those who loves oatmeal but always feels hungry way before lunch. Thanks for the tips.
