View Full Version : eating raw oats --- bad or good

03-25-2004, 10:39 AM
In the morning I am pretty hectic running around so I concocted a shake that will be easy to eat/drink in the road

30g of whey, 1 cup of oats, 1 spoon of honey, two strawberries (for a bit flavor).

I put everything in the blender with 3 cups of water.

First I tried cooking the oats before putting them in blender, but the guuish consistence that they acquire when cooked almost made me gag.

they I tried the raw and problem was solved

However I am wondering if by eating raw I am missing on nutrients that need to be cooked to be digested by my stomach ( if there is such a nutrients).

I eat my oatmeal at work.

A bit of browsn sugar and a protein shake to wash the oats down

I will try the eating at work too.... the shake thing works great because I can just go around doing stuff with a glass in my hand, rather that having to sit down to eat.. but of course if I could manage to wake sonner then everything will be ok ... :)

As long as they're not steel cut slow cooking you'll be fine.

I put both 1 min and 5 min oats in my shakes.
