>why are oats so great
do yourself a favor and don't buy meme flavored oats. Kek @ falling for the "IT HAZ BROTEINS! :D" meme. Oats are complex carbs used for energy, their protein content is irrelevant
I just buy the generic cheap ones at my local supermarket. I use a mason's jar to prepare my oats and put it in the fridge over night. Recipe:
- 8 tablespoons of oats
- soy milk or almond milk to cover the oats entirely
- 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
- half a banana
- half a kiwi
- a handful of frozen fruit, such as strawberry, raspberry or blueberry
Not a lot of protein in here, but so gawd damn delicious and keeps you going for hours
I mean, is there really that much of a difference between brand names and the generic ones? Oats are oats. It's what you add to them that actually makes a difference. I'm not going to buy Quaker oats cause they're fucking expensive compared to generic ones
Question. Is there any difference between coarse and fine? I bought these and the coarse one are just rolled oats I think and I find it hard to eat.
I'm into agriculture and oats are cheap as fuck. 1kg was 0.17$ this year. Considering unbranded is like 0.30$ where I live, and branded is like 1$, I consider it a huge ripoff
I currently eat oat for all 3 meals. Boiled in water. I sometimes add lean protein such as 3 ounces of chicken or tuna.
The only problems now are dizziness/light headed when I stand sometimes, and I only poop maybe every 3 days. I also fear oat bloat since it can be deadly but so far no symptoms.
Post oat regimes here for motivation.
This morning I made instant oatmeal (the apple/cinnamon variety) with 1% milk. Once I started eating I realized there was no flavor. I somehow got a flavorless packet. I choked it down but ew it was gross.
why dont you link the video for everyone?
I've seen it to anon !!
theres literally no need to pretend you invented this recipe on a nigerian fish trading advice board
I just started eating oats today, This morning I had about 240ml of oats in milk and some honey. Pretty nice 2bh but Holy shit I felt full as fuck. 240ml is about a cup and I see people here saying they do 2 fucking cups AND some eggs.
How the fuck do you do that? I feel disgusting.
How do you guys make your oats? I could eat the flavored packets but it's not as nutritious as plain old fashioned oats, but it tastes fucking terrible, even with cinnamon, so what do you do to make it taste better?
Either walmart brand or quaker brand Maple and Brown Sugar.
every day since elementary school
This, that shit might not even have protein in it, they could just be lying on the packet and no-one would know. They probably aren't but they could be so I don't count the protein in it.
I just buy the cheapest oats i can find, they end up being rolled oats most of the time, about $1 for 1kg, i spend maybe half an hour putting them through a coffee grinder, it makes the smoothest, creamyest porridge you can imagine.
As for flavour, i usually go for honey, maple syrup or brown sugar, i like the caramel flavour it gives the oats.
In mainland Europe it's actually not that easy finding oats (they call it muesli here), because most people here just eat corn flakes and bread (you know, the delicious continental European bakery style, not the shitty factory produce like in the UK and the States). I lived in Ireland for a year at age 21 and that was probably the first time in my life I saw anyone eat oats for breakfast.
What you can find here a lot though is cruesli, which is kind of a mix between oats and cornflakes. If you do find oats here it will come with raisins, seeds, nuts and other stuff such as sliced dried bananas. Very rarely can you find "just" oats, let alone steel cut or any other variant.
Take advantage of the European market.
Go to Amazon for your country, and have them ship you some straight to your door.
Oatmeal in english
Haferflocken in german
It wont be as cheep as you would find in a supermarket in the UK, but you can get a kilo for less than 5 euros.
Oh I don't mind actually, I really like muesli with the added seeds, raisins, nuts and stuff. Makes the whole thing more nutritious right away. I was just pointing out to our American/ UK friends that it is hard to find pure oats in mainland Europe, because we don't have a tradition eating that.
Nah it was like this maybe a few years ago. You need to dig through muesli to find the pure oats. Now I see more and more supermarket chains started their own brand and I can find them relatively easily and I live in eastern yurop. I never knew about oats until I started browsing /fit/
>But I can't choke them down unless I add sugar.
Adding pure sugar to your food is the worst way, seriously. Just cut up some fruit and add that to your oats, it's natural sugar and will make it just as sweet, without the bad health effects.
Pro tip: I always buy raspberries/ strawberries/ blueberries in the frozen section of the super market. Costs about 1,5 dollars for 300 grams of frozen fruit (fresh is much costlier in the winter), just add a handful to your oats every time you prepare them.
Another tip for flavor: add soy milk with vanilla flavour to your oats instead of milk. Really cheap too and adds great flavor
I often use strawberries, and it still tastes like shit, aside from the bites with the strawberries themselves.
I'll try the soy milk and stop with the sugar. Thanks for the advice.
Scott's Old-fashioned oats
Whole organic milk, just enough to cover the oats then cook it in a pan on a low heat whilst stirring until it's done
Because they just are 2bh senpaitachi
>1 dl oatz
>1.25 dl water
>2 large, almost brown bananas, sliced
>1 tbsp coconut oil
Mix water, oatz and banana in a bowl, nuke for 2 min, add coconut oil and whey, stir, nuke for 30 sec. Add milk and other shit you like, stir, eat.
I don't really give a shit about protein in oats anymore. I can get that from other food. But oats are good and I, like this anon,
have been eating them nearly all my life for breakfast.
Not particular on brand (shit I have great value brand in my pantry right now). Op's pic related are the kind I've had the most. Since ive tried it I like 1,000 times glorious nippon folded steel cut oats though
0, Mixing flavors
2. Raisins and Spice
3. Apple Cinnamon
6. Cinnamon Roll
>what you add
Bananas, Peanut Butter, Regular Butter, Brown Sugar, Maple Syrup, Oatmeal Cookies, Ice Cream
I'm not a huge fan of rice; does anyone here know offhand if oatmeal completes the amino acid profile when paired with beans?
Y'all seriously don't make this shit yourself?
Favourite: the ones that I buy in bulk in the local mill
What do I add: a banana, half a packet of quark, some dried cranberry and peanuts and top it with a pinch of cinnamon
Why are they great? Cheap, relatively tasty, sating as fuck. Also dat fiber
I salute you, fellow Romanian comrade
Best combo for me is strawberry and banana, but I put in whatever fruit I have, plus a splash of vanilla extract or cinnamon. If I feel particularly frisky, I'll eat it with peanut butter and banana, shit's cash
