i’m not sure how much this will really help, but…if you were to just eat the oats dry, and like stick a spoonful in your mouth, then throw some water in your mouth right after to swallow it with, it’s really not that bad. Tastes similar to what you could assume cardboard tastes like, but it really doesn’t have that much taste to it. Not to mention it’s a heck of a lot faster and convenient.[/quote]
Just beware, for anyone who goes this route, that at first you may experience some extreme abdominal discomfort and gas. Over time you might get used to it, but for some people it can be quite an adjustment.
BTW, I’m not trying to get anyone not to consume their oats that way. Just encouraging anyone who does to start slow. It’s a great way to get some low GI carbs in, although I’m still somewhat suspect as to whether the body actually absorbs and utilizes the uncooked oats. I seem to pass them whole a lot of times when I do this…
