carbs other than oats that can be added to shake?

  1. carbs other than oats that can be added to shake?


    i used to throw oats in the cuisinart, grind them down to a powder & throw them in my shakes for a little extra complex carbs... but i have celiac (gluten allergy) and i cant eat oats anymore

    so now im looking for food sourced carbs to add to my shakes (no dex) ... i was thinking about trying uncooked brown rice, but im not sure how digestible brown rice is uncooked....


    suggestions?


  2. I dont really know much about ur disorder, or gluten in general but a quick google search turned up this..

  3. quinoa is great for fiber with a little extra protein, it's one of those superfoods with all sorts of good stuff. No gluten,too. The taste isn't all that far off from oats. It's sort of nuttier.
    The Truth is, there is no Truth.

  4. Whole grain Brown Rice flour may be a good option, banana's are always tasty. Supercarb from avant if you have some disposable income. I am not sure but Rye may be a viable option as well, you can get flaked rye pretty cheap at home brewing stores.

  5. sweet potato (may have to steam it first)

  6. Actually a really good shake is:
    1 half a can of Pumpkin (carb)
    2 scoops vanilla protein
    cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
    milk or water to texture
    splenda to taste

    Are you looking for only food sources because they're more nutritionally dense or because of dex/malto's quick absorption and high GI?

    Just get straight Pumpkin, it is right next to the pie fillings in the grocery store. Its pretty cheap, super nutritional, mixes well in a shake, and even makes a decent hot breakfast if you microwave it and the add protein to it to thicken it up.

    I feel you. I was just going to say, if it's only the GI you're worried about then SuperCARB would be a very good substitute(GI ~32). SuperCARB can't compare to whole food sources on the other front though, unfortunately.

    I used to wonder why I'd get sluggish and lethargic after eating oats!

    "But they're so good for you!"
    "Not if you're allergic to them!"

    Go to the healthfood store and find the gluten-free section and you'll find a TON of mixed grains that are certifiably gluten-free. That's whatz Iza DO!
    Freedom means nothing here.

    yup, and even the gluten free oats are a no-go for me... oats contain a protein with a very similar amino acid sequence to gluten. research has shown that a fair amount of people with celiac actually do react to oats as well.
