I keep seeing 1/2 cups of oats references for breakfast...Is brown rice, barlet oats, quinoa, wheat berriesor or anything like interchangable???help!
of course. calm down. you can have whatever carb source you like. just make sure it's not processed all to hell. i personally like grits (hominy cereal). i eat me a bowl of that with 1tbsp of p.b. in the mornings now.
IMO..nothing beats the convience of protein, oats, and a blender for my pre-breakfast shake. its also my main source of fiber.
where do you guys go to buy groats... i guess I could check whole market. All I can find is steel cut oats, which I currently use.
BiggerGeek - I get groats at Winco. I don't know where you are, so I don't know if you have them, but any place you can buy foods in bulk will typically sell both oat and wheat groats.
To prepare: 1cup groats per 3.5cups water: the night before you want to eat them, put both the groats and water in a pot and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15-20mins with the lid on. Turn the stove off, leave the lid on and let the pot sit on the stove until morning. Reheat either on the stove or in the microwave.
i eat steamed brocolli and carrots maybe 5 meals a month no joke. obviously i eat alot of potatos.
i know the origional post said 1/2 cup...i do it bigger...1.5 cups (12g fiber) twice a day. did i mention i love carbs?
