    But there's more to food than just vitamins, minerals, fat, protein and carbs. They have other phytonutrients that are very beneficial to the body and health.

    Oats

    Brown Rice



    I like my oatmeal with cinnamon and raisins and cottage cheese added....oh, and milk on it.

    Except for an occasional sushi roll, I don't eat grains or any other starchy foods. As for oatmeal and protein, here is the nutritional breakdown of plain rolled oats:

    It's not exactly a protein powerhouse.

    I like steel cut oatmeal a few times a week for breakfast. I eat it uncooked, with no milk or sugar, and with just applesauce stirred into it.

    My diet is somewhere around 30/50/20 carbs/fat/protein, with the carbs coming from fruits and non-starchy veggies. Protein could very well be a bit less than 20% of calories.

    Almost every morning! I have brown rice sushi at my school cafeteria two or three times a week.

    I'll take your word on the nutrition stuff, but I know it has an effect on my pipes. Squeaky, whistling dixie clean! icon_exclaim.gif

    Blegh, I wish I could stomach the stuff but it and cream of wheat I've always thought were gross.

    Steel cut oats, usually with some kind of berries or a bit of cinnamon. The trick is you just have to start them cooking first thing when you roll out of bed. It takes a little while. Quick oats in a pinch.

    Beware anything labeled "oatmeal" in US grocery stores. It's mostly quick oats with so much sugar added that it's inedible.

    Yep. Higher on some days, lower on others. I have wonky carbohydrate metabolism, and eating only moderate amounts of carbs keeps my blood sugar stable. The conventional wisdom of eating 65% carbs is metabolic hell for me.

    I have a small serving of oatmeal as part of my breakfast every morning (about 1/3 cup of old fashioned or steel cut oats). Other than some low-carb vegetables and fruit, it's the only type carb I eat regularly....very rarely eat potatoes or bread, and never eat rice or pasta. I've never thought of oatmeal as a protein source and was surprised to read in the nutrition facts posted above that it contained any protein. I eat oatmeal mostly for the fiber benefit. Love the taste, too.

    I just incorporated oatmeal into my breakfast routine, along with grapenuts, yogurt and fresh fruit if some sort. It seems to do the trick

    Yes! Me too. Add a scoop of protein powder in the mix and BAM! breakfast.

    I consider oatmeal and brown rice to be a source of good complex carbohydrates even if they have some protein.

    I usually add a scoop of protein powder and some chia seeds to my oatmeal. icon_smile.gif

    I miss Oatmeal quite a bit!

    However, having been a main-staple of my diet, I was utterly shocked to discover it was the main reason for my premature arthritis (hit me @ age 37 & was forced to give up my membership @ the SportsClub Irvine 5 years later).

    Now that I have no pain in the joints, I'm checking every ingredient label for it or oat products; strange I know, but @ this point, if I ate so-much-as one rolled oat flake, I'd experience a full 10 weeks of joint pain.

    If any of you have arthritic symptoms, I've learned that Oat Products are your number-one suspect. GIVE IT UP, and consult a Nutritionist !!

    G.D. -IT, I can't even drink my Oatmeal Stout Beer any longer !

    GOOD LUCK

    Yup. Maple and Brown sugar oatmeal with some cinnamon added in. Great breakfast. Maybe with an egg or two for extra protein.
