Ah-nauld's Bulk 'em up Diet

submitted by DebR

This is the general recipe I used to keep the weight on Arnold, who had no resistance to myco. It helped extend his life by a good 9 months (along with antibiotics, of course).

Ingredients

1 Tbsp buttery spread (Smart Balance or the like)
1 Tbsp honey
1/4 cup water
1 3/4 Tbsp cornmeal, quick oats, farina, or cream of wheat

Place buttery spread in microwave-able custard cup. Cover with honey. Add water and then add cereal grain choice. Nuke until bubbling mixture rises (about 1 to 1.5 minutes).

(Putting the butter and honey in first prevents the hard clot of cereal you get on the bottom of the cup if you nuke just the cereal and water and then add the rest.)

I also gave Nutrical and Ensure Plus to help balance the diet.
