Is this what americans call porridge?

If so i have some in the cupboard,
Why is it so popular? and how do you eat yours?

Yes, I believe so, although I call it oatmeal.:)

It is a good source of low GI carbs and fiber, and it is inexpensive and easy to prepare.

I eat my oats dry:D

best oatmeal on the market (IMHO)

McCann's Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal

http://www.mccanns.ie/

Higher in protein than some other oatmeals, low GI carb, and they taste Mm Mm good. ;)

My 'oatmeal' is like flakes and seems a little too 'DRY' kind of sawdusty.

Also it wasnt cheap for the box, but i suppose unbranded its probably very cheap.

Ive eaten it once and i had it with water and some honey to flavour (shouldve used more tho) i alos noticed it dried liek cement to my bowl.

Note than McCann's is not ROLLED oats... there's a difference.

i take it, rolled = flat and flakey like mine?

yup.
as opposed to firm and nutty like the steel cut McCann's stuff

it's brilliant, really... the best tasting oats I've ever had.

everything tastes better with sugar

yeah but sugar spikes up the GI of the meal. Ya gotta find an alternative.

her products include "Somersize Triple Hot Fudge Sauce"
i agree - there are better alternatives to just plain sugar

Just take the oats and poor them in a bowl.:D

It is too hot in Alabama for cooked oats, and I do not feel so full after eating dry oats as compared to cooked oats.

When cutting I find that cooking the oats will fill me up more, as compared to eating the dry.

if you cook them, cinnamon makes them taste very good without any sugar, alhtough often i put dates in the porridge as well. if you take them dry, i don't think it needs anything else.

Bradley I think you are full of ****. Any attempt to swallow dry oats would line your throat and esophagus with em.
Why don't you just tell him to eat crushed walnut shells and table salt?

That is your opinion, but I have no reason to state otherwise.

I find it quite easy to eat dry eats, although I do keep some water handy to wash them down with.:)

I occasionally eat dry oats too, because as bradley mentioned, they dont fill me up so much and sometimes its just too hot. Sometimes I will eat them cold with milk and sugar free jello (powder, not prepared). Also good on top of cottage cheese mixed with peanut butter and sugar free jello/jelly and maybe a cut up banana :drool: making me hungry
