when i'm to lazy to cook oats how is this for a substitute?
ezekiel 4:9 golden flax cereal
sat. fat 0g
total carbo 37g
igredients: spouted wheat, malted barley, flax seeds, sprouted barley, spouted millet, sprouted lentils, spelt, and sea salt.
i'm not sure what it is but the ingerdients contain barley so i guess it can't be that bad.
but, what's wrong with eating oats raw? yum yum!

That looks pretty decent to me. 37g of all complex carbs, can't beat that.

looks like a good alternative to the regular boring oats in the morning.

I agree with Col. Raw oats really aren't that bad after you develop a taste for them. The real plus is that you have to eat them at a slower rate which revs up your metabolism. Instead of eating a cup of cooked oats all at once, eat a mouthful or two with a protein shake and then nibble on the rest throughout the morning or whenever. I honestly believe my body is responding to this method of consumption a lot better than eating a cup of cooked oats for a meal.

What's the problem? Add oats and water then microwave for 2 1/2 minutes. It's not that hard.

i don't even heat the water anymore. it all tastes the same anyway.
i actually prefer it raw, or mixed with whey......cooked just doesnt go with me.

This is a quote from Nutmeg in a post a few down:

You need to look really closely at the ingredients as it would most likely contain preservatives. That and look for "whole oat"
[/ QUOTE ]
It means that the grain contains all three parts of the grain: germ, endosperm and bran. The whole grain provides maximum health benefit.

So see, its not just the carbs you want, but its also the benifits of oatmeal itself. EAT YOUR OATMEAL! /forum/images/graemlins/mad.gif
