Yep the avenin or whatever it is acts a lot like gluten so many can only eat so much and feel much better with smaller protions only once in a while.
Thank god i can eat a lot of them becaues i love oats. Oats + cinnamon + PB + Chocolate whey is amazing. Or instead of whey greek yogurt[/quote]
That’s actually a traditional hearty icelandic dish. I like to mix greek yogurt (or icelandic yogurt) in my oats too. I thought I invented it or was the only one basically…come to find out they do this a lot in Iceland…
Sometimes I like to make these really dense porridge dishes…oats, cinnamon, peanut butter, casein powder, greek yogurt, and bananas. Pretty calorically/nutrient dense and really hit the spot.[/quote]
Had no idea about all that info. I just like how thick it gets. One of the few things that is dense enough to even touch my apetite.
Like the idea of bannanas in there that sounds really good. Might have to try apples as well[/quote]
Agreed–one of my classic combos (which I also thought I had invented :P):
oats, fat free cottage cheese, pb, whey
cook oats with pb in it, stir pb, then mix in cottage cheese, then whey.
another good one is eggs, whey, and cottage cheese with spinach in the eggs.
ha, lately I’ve just been knocking out a can of salmon with 2.5 scoops of whey mixed in. Huge calories, extremely good.
I got my brother to eat the pb, oats, etc combo once. He didn’t eat anything the rest of the day–said he felt like he had a brick in his stomach, haha. (he’s a diminutive guy who doesn’t lift).
