In the morning I eat oatmeal, fish oil, flax seed oil, and orange juice...along with plenty of water. If oatmeal has no or little protein, do you guys think it's a good idea to maybe eat some yogurt (the yogurt I have has 12 g of protein) along with it to give me some protein?

Do you not have the box/packet that has the nutritional facts listed on it?

Mix a scoop of your favorite protein powder in with your oats after they are cooked. Or have some eggs.

I dunno...I'm looking for it. Currently my oatmeal is in like a bucket thing so I'm looking for the nutritional facts.

Thanks for the advice guys, and I forgot that I eat my oatmeal with milk, so either way, I'm getting in some protein.

Since it comes from a plant, it's likely to have a pretty poor amino acid profile. I'd suggest throwing some milk or yoghurt in the mix.

This is correct... although oatmeal has protein, it's not a complete protein source. Whey protein, eggs, cottage cheese are other foods to supplement the oatmeal.

I laugh, so many people do this. It would take less time to go to cupboard, or google it. But then there always someone who google it for them.

I couldn't find my box...but I just found it this morning, and it has 5 g protein.

As long as your protein throughout the day is varied, one meal w/ a "poor amino acid profile" won't make much of a difference.

It's called Kroger Carb Master. My cottage cheese is also Kroger brand. They're pretty good.

I agree, but only to a certain extent. If you've already totally digested the first meal, (which you shouldn't have before your next one, esp. if you're bulking, but it's possible), then you could be a little low on certain aminos. But I guess most people here probably eat at least 4-5 times a day anyway, so it shouldn't be a problem :cool:
