    Oh. It was for cooked oats. 8.3 oz worth. This is where I got the nurtition facts from. It says that 1 cup uncooked has 48 grams of carbs. Thats a lot closer to 54 grams.

    I love calorie king, but one of the common problems that people do is use the "Average All Brands" section. I just checked to see if that is what you did, and it looks like it (the second one from the top after searching "cooked oats.")

    If you have a specific brand, search for it! Calorie King is a godsend for having extremely accurate labels from brand name products. Make sure from time-to-time, you update your data base, too. They are always putting in new product nutrition labels.

    I have what you did plus the button to click here:

    I would add a whole egg to the mix, that will increase your protein and fat. Don't be afraid of whole eggs, they are good for you and have plenty of good nutrients that you need!

    Most of the minerals and lecithin is in the yolk.

    At least one whole egg will add alot of flavor also! I always do one whole egg for every 3 egg whites.

    Cosigned about the whole eggs. FYI, the most abundant fatty acid in yolks is the identical one found in olive oil (oleic acid). This would free up some olive oil later for your arugula salad
