How do you add oats to your diet?
Just eat more oatmeal? I grind it up in shakes for PWO. I also tried putting it in cottage cheese today w/ splenda & cinnamin and it was pretty good.
What other meals can I put it in?

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.

In my protein shakes, with milk. Add some ground cinammon too.

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?

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.
Whole Grain Oatmeal Cereal
No Genetically Engineered Ingredients
No Added Salt or Sugar
No Modified Food Starch
Organically grown, without potentially harmful pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth.
Serving Size: 4 Tbsp. (14g)
Servings Per Container: 16
Amount Per Serving
Total Fat 1g
Total Carb 11g

% Daily Value
Vitamin A 0%
Vitamin C 0%
Vitamin E 15%
Ingredients: Organic whole oat flour, rolled organic oats, tocopherols (vitamin E), alpha-amylase (enzyme), electrolytic iron.
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.

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.

my blender makes my oats completely powdery

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.

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

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.
