Man, don’t get all tied up with the oatmeal issue.
Get plain rolled oats or steal cut oats, it really doesn’t matter THAT much.
Just make sure that oats are the one and only ingredient in the box.
Regarding brands, any brand shall do. Since you will be living off the stuff, don’t get too fancy and buy a reasonably-priced brand. Oats are oats afterall.
I personally go for Quaker Oatmeal.[/quote]
Good advice right there. I tend to go to a natural food store (near me we have Wild Oats) and buy it in bulk. It ends up being a ton cheaper and I get like 6 lbs at a time, which I need since I eat the stuff every morning with Grow! and some frozen berries.
A lot of people get kind of worked up about steel cut oats as being the best, but I dunno. As long as you are not getting the kind in the little packets with all the extra sugar, I’m sure they are all fairly comparable.
