I eat the oats straight off the stalks and use it the stalks to pick my teeth afterwards. Then I kill the nearby cow for protein after sucking the milk outta it.
Good ol fashioned hunting and gathering
I just toss a cup or so of Quaker Oats into my blender along with milk & protein powder, blend a bit and toss it down the hatch.
One of my usual drinks includes:
1 cup Quaker Oats
1.5 cups Non-fat milk
2 scoops whey protein
1 serving of straberry bannana yogurt
1 tbsp peanut butter
BLEND - ENJOY
Re: blending oats
I assume most of us use oats (in place of other more refined carbs) to control insulin response and possibly allow for sustained energy.
When we blend our oats (depending on how long/fine you blend the material), that dramatically cuts down on the surface area of the material and I would assume that would mean MUCH quicker digestion. So, are we really doing oats justice by blending? I mean, if I blend my oats into a fine powder, how is that much different than say powdered malto?
oats in a blender with my usual after workout shake. Thats my breakfast! Don't have time for eggs and such. Plus there is a lot of stuff in my shake. Blend a little longer otherwise it would be like mud.
i had the same problem tryin to down a shake with oats...its like quick dry cement.....IMO try puttin 3-5 ice cubes in before the oats....it helps dice up the oats better and really helps with the thickness especially if your makin them awhile before drinkin..
when all else fails hold your nose closed and down it!!!
i know this is a little off the current topic, but i just cant get used to the taste/texture of cottage cheese. Ive tried it with fruit and its ok but i still dont enjoy it. My question is what do you think about throwing some cottage cheese in the blender with some protein powder. Ill prob do this in the evening.
tru ^ advice on this would help me out aswell
bump...i know plenty of you eat cc, and i really need help with this one
If you dont mind carbs you can make some good tastin pancakes:
1/2 cup oats (ground)
1/2 cup f.f.c.c.
4 egg whites
toss in the blender for a matter of seconds of just use a handheld blender. Also, one of those blender bottles that nutra has that has the stainless ball in it might work well!
Anyways...that makes some mean pancakes. If you dont want carbs, try:
-fat free cottage cheese with some walden farms 0 calories fruit spreads
-f.f.c.c. with some sugar free maple syrup
