Wheat Farina?

Love oatmeal, but is wheat farina (cream of wheat, cocoa wheats) a suitable carb source? Doesn’t seem to get much press, so I wanted the low down on it. Mr. Shugart?


bump. thats good!
The only concern I think would be G-Index of the farina. It is rather high. I cannot give you the exact number, but dont take my word for it, look it up. Other than that, I believe most are vitamin and mineral fortified, and not bad tasting with a little fake sweetener and fake butter stuff (whatever kind you may use). Maybe some of the other smarty pants guys can help with this.

Deep bumpin it if they dont want to play!

Wasn’t farina mentioned in the “Foods That Make You Look Good Nekkid” article? I may be remembering something else, but I think it’s named as a good, but not great, carb source. But don’t hold me to that. Peace.
