I read in a lot of peoples diet that they eat oats.

How do you eat them? Do you make them into porridge? Or can you eat them uncooked?

I just bought some Quakers oats...

I usually cook them and eat them with apples and a tiny bit of honey. I also use them in making meatballs.

Not sure what other people do...

Yeah I heard about that thing linux said w/the meatballs, it works well actually. I tried mixing them w/warm PB and putting them on WW toast. Wasn't GREAT, but it tasted better than raw or soggy.

I tried eating them raw. Talk about appetite supression. I managed about 30 calories worth before I couldn't face eating anything for some time. :)

So instead I use them in protein cookie recipes :drooling:

They're a good source of low GI carbs and fiber.
