View Full Version : meal vs. shake

i was wondering (although ive done it before) if it makes a difference nutritional wise, to have my breakfast as a solid meal or in the blender for a quick shake

either way, the ingredients are the same;
protein powder
efa oil

usualy i cook the oatmeal, then add the oil and protein, eat the oatmeal mix and the banana... but i can easly blend it all for a smoothie.

There would be no difference nutrition wise, although the meal will digest a little faster if you were to blend it up.

hmm, but what if he didn't cook the oats when he made a shake? doesn't cooking them increase the rate they are digested, if only a little?

Yes, although I doubt the signifigance would be significant.

if i make the shake, i will not cook it... so it'll take longer to digest eh..that's not so bad... unless gas is a factor...

How does it taste when you cook the oatmeal and does it it taste any better when you dont cook it?

Also would you say this shake is at least decent tasting or what?
