Meatloaf! Simple & Easy
1lb Lean meat or ground white Turkey
1 8oz can of tomato sauce
1 package lipton onion soup
2 cups of raw oats(you can add more or less)

oat bran can be bought as well as oatmeal itself
fwiw, most oats you buy are "rolled oats". "steel cut" oats (which are also available) maintain more of the bran and the nutrtion, but do take longer to cook. they are a superior choice. they also taste better
a good way i like to prepare oatmeal is to make a porridge of:
milk (i use nonfat powder. cheap and convenient)
banana flavored micellar matrix protein powder
sprinkle with blueberries
this makes a wonderful almost pudding like sweet breakfast cereal.
it's loaded with fiber, protein, anti-ox's, etc.
and it is totally "stick to your ribs" good

dump it in my protein shakes or put it into egg whites and cook it into patties. Then cover with Splenda/cinnamon/SF syrup.

Where do you get your steel cut oats? I've checked all around town and the best I can find is a small, very expensive tin of steel cut oats. Any online sites to buy in bulk?Originally Posted by jjjd

I volumize it so it is more filling. Take extra thick oats, cook 3-4 cups dry weight per gallon on the stove like a stew. Stick it in fridge and let it cool and congeal (thickens it appropriately). I then use it however I want. I like to make savory stuff with it quite often. Treat just like refridgerated cooked rice.
Adding milk protein or casein works well ime.

If you want to add oats to your shake and keep the shake-like consistancy you can add baby oatmeal.

TWO THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND:
It is fortified with iron.
Your servings will be much larger than 4 tbs, about 1/2 cup, when you adjust for serving size the other nutrition quantities fall into line with regular rolled oats. This is expensive compared to just grinding up oats, but it makes a really smooth shake.

I buy Bob's Red Mill steel cut oats. Also buy thier ground flax seed, rolled barley, muesli, pilaf, ect.... They've got an insane variety of whole grain foods.
They've got a website at http://www.bobsredmill.com/
Shipping prices might kill you, especially if you're getting 25lb bags of stuff.
My local not-walmart grocery store carries about 30 of thier products.
Right now I'm eating a bowl of steel cut oats with blackberries. Mmmmm.....

i just got a blender yesterday and i toss a cup of oats into my shakes now. no chunks, just smooth liquid, makes for eating oatmeal a lot easier.
10-31-2004, 07:27 PM
today i decided to microwave my oats, then add whey (i usually just eat them raw with whey, and a bit of water)
and they tasted like 10000times better! unbelievable!

Grind the oats in a coffee bean grinder then add to your shakes.
Bump on the Bobs Redmill products. My local grocery store carries the line of foods.

what oats do you guys buy to put in your shakes? everytime I've put oats (ground into powder) into my shakes it never really mixes in, its all grainy and then I end up with a bunch at the bottom I have to swallow.
11-01-2004, 09:00 PM
my blender makes my oats completely powdery
11-02-2004, 10:58 PM
I use the Quaker or Red Mill oats and grind them to a powder. Shake it up real good, and down it in one shot.Originally Posted by J_MAN

steel cut oats from the health food store ground up in my shakes

i just made some oatbars, oats, bit of oatbran, dried fruit, apple sauce, yoghurt or cottage cheese, i also added some honey for stickiness, they are in the fridge now, i wonder how they will turn out, my sister likes them
11-03-2004, 04:37 PM
Thee's a recipe around here for bars made with oats, natural pb, honey, and whey protein. I made them before and they turned out good. One time I made them w/ sugar free maple syrup, but I didn't like the heavy maple flavor.
11-03-2004, 04:57 PM
In a blender w/ my protein shakes...real simple and I swear you can barely tell they're there
11-04-2004, 10:08 AM
do i just have a sucky blender then? Cuz everytime i do this i have to chew my shake, and all the oats end up at the bottom and i basically have to eat the bottom out with a spoon, **** is nastyOriginally Posted by kmac6225
11-04-2004, 10:13 AM
haha I guess so. I'm not one to savor my shake so I usually don't have to worry about the having too much time to fall to the bottom. This may sound dumb and I don't know if you do this already but try puttin the oats in first so they hit the blades before anything - maybe they'll get broken up a bit more

Wardog bars a.k.a. sheesh bars. Good stuff!Originally Posted by Cuffs

After I blend my shake with oats, I put it in a shaker bottle minus the strainer and just give it a quick shake in between sips.Originally Posted by MakaveliThaDon

If your like me, you hate oats. But they are a necessity in my diet, to get upwards of 500g carbs, (complex) daily. I eat around 6 cups (dry) oats a day...I find that the best way is to microwave it so it gets just warm, with tons of water, so its real sloppy. You can down this in under 5 minutes, thats 120g carbs straight up.

i just tried a new brand of oats today, i think i love oats 100times more now
11-05-2004, 10:48 PM
So what brand was it?Originally Posted by taffer
11-06-2004, 12:59 AM
im pretty sure its an aussie only brand, but its called "sunsine"Originally Posted by Stingray
im pretty sure its only australian, because they are called "australian rolled oats"
however i was using the cheapest oats before, which werent bad, but i decided to try a different brand that was a bit more expensive (and yeah it was on special, im still a cheapo! ) maybe just try a few different brands and see which one you like best!
11-08-2004, 01:53 PM
I think i need a new blender as well...i usually add some milk to the bottom of my shake (as all the unchopped oats are stuck together there) swirl it around and kick it back...its not the tastiest shot but better than grain alcohol
How much oats do most of you use in a single shake, i know i put usually around a cup or a little less?
01-03-2005, 09:33 PM
I know this is a little old now, but when you grind the oats up do they get oily or anything in the coffee grinder?Originally Posted by Cuffs

Good, I dont want to use my blender multiple times a day. Cleaning it out sucks ass.
