Do This At Home, Then Stay There

Potentially volatile combination
I remember looking askance at my grandparents as they regularly quaffed prune juice. Never liking it, I haven't had more than a couple of glasses my entire life. However, I now understand the purpose of the prune juice, and a daily bowl of oatmeal performs the same function.

A member of the household suggested that acacia powder, an excellent source of dietary fiber, be added to the daily diet, so I mixed the powder with a glass of water. Mistake.

Although fiber is beneficial, there can be too much of a good thing. If you are going to combine oatmeal and acacia, for the first time, at least, my advice is to stay close to home.
