    what kind of oats do you use?


    i've been eating oatmeal everyday for years and i noticed that a lot of people here use oats also. I've read some people putting oats in their shakes. I was wondering what type of oats you use? Do you buy oatmeal and just dump it in your shake or do you use plain oats? If you use plain oats where do you buy them at?


  2. I use rolled oats, or plain quaker oats. When desperate i throw a few packs of individual serving oatmeal packs and if you buy shakes form the gym i ask them to add it in the shake i get, or just make it at home.

  3. Quaker rolled oats. I grind them up in a food processor for use in shakes.

  4. The cheapest instant I can find. When I put them in my shake I usually throw them in there first, grind them up, and then add everything else

  5. Steele cut quaker. Mmmmmm!

    thanks for the quick replies. I look forward to mixing my oats in a shake tomorrow instead of the regular oatmeal. I think i might throw some in my post WO shake too!

  7. Raw oat bran in the shakes and the occasional bowl od oat meal cereal. Thats it ... keeps me regular!

    Sprt

  8. Some really hard rolled oats that you find in bulk bins at your local hippie market.

  9. I picked up something called Coach's Oats. They are cut strangely, and not mushy at all. Very tasty.

    Costo, FTW.

  11. Publix rolled oats

  12. I have been eating Muscle Milks Oats. Chocolate or vanilla are pretty good and also have 30g of protien mixed in. I keep about four servings in the bottom drawer of my desk. I can pop one in the microwave at work in the mornings after my post workout shake.

    I didn't know quaker has steel cut oats. I ordered 25 lbs of steel cuts direct from bobsredmill.com , picking it up locally would be easier. Steel cut oats are chewier if you like a non-sog breakfast.

    I can't stand oatmeal. It's disgusting. Never had to eat it and I can't stand the thought of shoveling down animal feed after trying plain Quaker oats once.

    [/Gigantic_wuss]

    Which is mostly why I've been trying to run away from eating a lot of food. The idea of eating as much oats as you guys, and that's as much as a thoroughbred stallion, is frightening.

  18. Oat Bran

  19. Great Value Classic Oats....from walmart

  20. Anyone beat Costco's price on Quaker Old Fashioned? That's what I use, I've been a little too lazy to see if online bulk prices are a better deal. I hear good things about Bob's Red Mill:

    Bob's Red Mill - V2 - Whole Grain and Gluten Free Products and Recipes

  21. The steel cut oats are on sale at Bob's Red mill ( They're quite often on sale actually lol). It's $15/25 lbs, and $22 if you want organic. I've tried a bunch of different steel cut oats, and these ones had the best texture. Went through the 25 lb bag pretty quickly.

    They also have some great wholewheat flours & stuff to check out for your protein pancakes/other foods. Great company.

    there are millions of ways to flavor oatmeal and make it taste great. u usually do stevia and cinnamon myself but ive tried adding davinci and wladen farms syrups and this makes it really good. since ive cut back on artificial sweeteners, i like honey and cinnamon mixed with oats. if youre not willing to give oats another try, experiement with other grains. i like other hot cereals from buckwheat , barley, or rye. good stuff!

    Hmmm...you know, that doesn't sound half bad. I guess I'll go give it a try. Thanks.

  25. Right now i'm using organic rolled oats from Loblaw's (canadian super market).

    Is steel cut that much better? Right now from what i gather it takes a fair bit more time cooking vs. I just put boiling water into a cup of rolled oats.

    I don't flavour mine, I just wash it down with green tea. Though that means I don't end up chewing it but I figured it'll bulk up my stool even more.

    Steel cut taste a little different. I toast mine before cooking and it adds a little bit of a nutty taste. Add a little salt and good to go.

  27. Old-fashioned Oats or Steel-Cut Oats is what I usually get. I also use Ezekiel cereal once in awhile to add a little variety. The profile for it is excellent. And it taste good too.

  28. snoqaulmie falls outmeal is the best ive ever had. I dont know if you can get it outside of washington but it is gooooooood

  29. Old Fashioned Organic Scottish Oats. They own all.

  30. I eat so much oatmeal that I end up buying all sorts of different brrands just to change things-up a bit. Mostly I use organic instant oats because I'm always pressed for time.

    A great trick that works for me as a student is for the longer-cooking oats just boil up some water before going to bed, put about 1/2 cup of the steelcut oats in a bowl with the boiling water and just put a plate on top and in the morning they will be about half cooked. Zap them for about 5 minutes or so and they're good to go; almost as quick as instant and yet better texture

  32. Steal cut oats from a local Amish store. So good, make you wanna slap you momma!

    Thanks for the advice.

  34. Costco: Quaker Old Fashioned Oats = best bulk buy.

    and

    John McCann's Steel Cut Irish Oats.

  35. Quaker Oats. I put them in the blender and grind them to a powder. That way when i throw them in my shake they are barley there. Put them in whatever, its as fine as a protein powder.

  36. How about Now Foods Oat Bran?

    Could it be simply added to a protein shake for carbs?

    It's Oats that are already ground up.

    And when you add oats to your protein shake, how's it change the taste?

    Or any other suggestions for adding carbs. I don't really want to go with the dextrose or fructose. They seem to have more of a tendency to mess with my blood sugar (hypoglycemic). Plus I get Now Foods products at a greatly reduced price.

    Thanks

  37. I prefer steel cut but when I am rushing in the morning I don't feel like preparing them.
