There are few things I love more than my usual breakfast, which consists of oatmeal, an apple, a scoop of protein powder, and some cinnamon, all blended up and chugged. 3 minutes max from set-up to done and out the door, and tastes very much like an oatmeal cookie.
But since reading Poliquin's Question of Strength
I have been looking to alternatives to oatmeal, preferably ones that can be substituted more or less seamlessly into the above "recipe" (to save you a read, the upshot is that oats are a common allergen for Westerners, and can lead to increased cortisol and storage of abdominal fat). I'm keeping with oatmeal for the present while I experiment with alternatives:
I tried substituting quinoa. It was a fantastic failure.
I recently did a trial run (half portion, no apple) with millet. This wasn't too bad: sort of a granier, "corny" version of the original. From what I've read, allergies to millet are rare. Anything I should know about this grain?
Any other grains/seeds/legumes/other that might be worth giving a shot?
Any other quick breakfast methods that work? I'm not giving up milk (in before "stay fat then").
