Oatmeal

Recommended Posts

@lindag  The slimey thing is not an issue with me as I grew up with Cream of Wheat (Nestle's Quick was fave add in). As mentioned above you can bake, The overnight oats craze is huge. Much more chewy and low on slime. My problem is that oatmeal makes me hungry. Protein in the morning works for me or even dal.

Agree that the overnite oats is a good prep method, you wind up with more of a "muesli" situation where the oats remain chewy and separate from the milk. I like to add peanut butter powder to the mix, or even protein powder.

Tried the overnight oats.  I liked it, my wife didn't.  There is a slime factor she could get past

LOL I'm the opposite...if I eat the traditional eggs 'n' whatever breakfast I feel greasy and bloated until mid-morning, and then ravenous until lunch. My steel-cut oats stay with me much more effectively. Different strokes, no?

 

FWIW, the limited work done on the satiety resulting from different foods, based on a consistent number of calories eaten, showed oatmeal to be one of the most satiating among breakfast foods. Of course, a plate of eggs, bacon, hash browns, etc adds up to a lot more calories than a bowl of porridge, which is one of the reasons satiety studies are a bear to design (well...that and the subjectivity of the whole exercise).

My favorite steel cut oats are Hamlyn's Pinhead Oats from Scotland. They come in a can and cost an arm and a leg and are harder and harder to come by. You can still get them on Amazon, but they cost almost twice as much as Bob's organic steel cut, so that's what we buy now. Irish steel cut oats are more available, but I don't like them as much.

 

My problem with hot cereal is that it stays hot for about one minute and then it just isn't so yummy any more. There must be some kind of heated bowl that would keep it hot for longer....

I tried the Bob's and didn't care for 'em. My usual two are the store-brand from Superstore (one of Canada's two main chains) and the ones from Bulk Barn, which seem to be identical. I don't know who actually mills them.

@ElsieD

 

Ive had that brand some time ago.   it tasted ' canny ' to me

 

in my area , no longer at Bread and Circus

 

and Organic + chain from some time go

 

it had a full two isles of ' bulk ' ingredients 

 

some organic some not , but bulk and a much better value

 

enter  the older  WholeFoods

 

the bought them up.

 

now in my area , the ' burbs

 

only WF has bulk ingredients

 

it seems that the number of bins is shrinking 

 

but perhaps not

 

I get the steel-cut oatmeal there

 

I use a Fuzzy National// Panasonic pot to cook them

 

I cook them w milk on the ' porridge ' setting

 

milk does not do well , Im told in the iPot.

 

but the same Idea :  push a button , fiddle and faddle 

 

then the Fuzzy beeps and Im done.

Just bought a big container of rolled oats which is our routine breakfast.  We eat them raw with a pour of almond milk with berries and walnuts.  A small breakfast which satisfies
