Replacing Oatmeal with Grits?


#1

I need a change from oatmeal can I replace it with grits? The nutrition guide looks pretty good but im not sure if grits will cause a insulin spike.


#2

if your going to choose “grits” look for Polenta. The only ingredient in polenta is “corn grits” and it has more protein and fiber than regular refined quick grits.


#3

I thought it said, “Replacing oatmeal with Girls.”


#4

I’ve never eaten grits. Am I missing out?


#5

I know a few guys in Golds Gym where I workout swear by it. They switch to it when they get tired of oatmeal. I have never tried replacing oatmeal but after a year im tired of the stuff. I need something new to try and if its as good as oatmeal as far as nutrition im game.

I like grits. Ronnie eats them, so they’ll definitely get you huge. Lol. But seriously, I’ve seen a video of him using grits and protein powder for his on the go P+C meals. I don’t think theres anything wrong with them.

For those of you tired of oatmeal, you might want to consider Bob’s Red Mill hot cereals. I alternate oatmeal with the
7 grain:

and High Fiber:

with cinnamon, they’re unbeatable (unless you add berries, of course)

Bob’s Red Mill is a rip off. Buy in bulk.

I still like some of Bob’s Red Mill stuff.

I’m sure they are big boys and can handle their finances.

Actually, I get the Bob’s Red Mill at Ocean State Job Lot (a New England Outlet chain). Dirt cheap there.
