    Thanks M@!

    Can't belive I totally missed that part of the thread... :o

    I know exactly what you mean! At first I was buying cans of McCann's from Trader Joe's for a little over 6 bucks. Then I found I can get a WHOLE POUND of the stuff for under 4 bucks... :eek: But I think the extra 2+ bucks goes to gas. :lol:

    I eat the store brand version of quaker instant packets in the "low sugar" flavours (The store brands are virtually identical, and literally half the price of Quaker packets).

    I recognise there are better GI choices. I also recognize there are FAR WORSE choices. I typically eat eggs, egg whites, or PB at the same time. This provides some protein and/or protein fat to the meal.


    I have had some bad steel cut oats in the past. They can go rancid, I suppose since I don't think many folks eat them and the may sit on the shelf a while.

    They seem more flavorful and fresh, I grind them for my PWO right at the time I am going to use them or maybe a day or two before and then refrigerate them. But I don't grind them when I am cooking oat meal cereal for breakfast.. say.

    McCann's steel cut oats are the only ones I like but I will confess I have never tried buying bulk steel cut oats.

    Maybe I am deluding myself, but I think they keep their nutrition longer as well as their taste is you wait until the last minute grind them (which as I said, I only do when they are going into my PWO.)

    During the work week I had been taking those Quaker single serve packets that you mix in a bowl with water, and put in microwave. I never realized how much sugar there is in some varieties. I just bought some "HO Smart Balance" that has no sugar added (has some flaxseeds added) , and while it doesn't taste as good, it definitely is a better choice. I am going to have to add some cinnamin starting tomorrow, hopefully that will help the taste. But even if it doesn't, it is something I can get used to.
