    Make Oats Taste Better....and protein shake too

    I bought some Rolled Oats (all my store had :wtc: ) yesterday and cooked them in microwave with water like it said and ate them. Man, they are nasty. Any ideas to make them taste better? How do you guys eat your oats?

    I throw in some sliced almonds and a bit some cinnamon and sugar.

    Various fruit is good too.

    I have Whey Protein Shake(chocolate) too. What do you guys put in those to make them taste better. Apparently Blender works best, but I'm not sure what to throw in with it.... maybe fruit?

    water or milk, 2 scoops chocolate whey, 1 banana, cup of oats, and 1-2 tbsp peanut butter. Obviously you'll need a blender for this, should taste pretty decent.

    Most people say Steel Cut Oats is better. I looked for 10 minutes :dunno:

    It's a 2lb bag. I gotta start somewhere :dunno:

    Orange Juice
    Strawberries
    Bananas
    1/4 Cup Whey Protein

    In Blender
    Tastes pretty damn good. I guess I could've added ice and it would've tasted a little bit better.

    edit: maybe I should add Oats next time?

    of course it tastes good, you basically made a fruit smoothie with a bit of added protein :rofl: use more whey, 1/4 cup isn't even 1 scoop of most proteins.

    I just pour in water. I literally gag uncontrollably and have to stop eating rolled oats after half a serving or I will puke. I can eat steel cut oats all day long. I think it goes back to my boy scout days and the endless week-long camping/backpacking trips where oatmeal was a staple of our diet and I hated it :). Wish I had known about steel cut oats when I was 14 :o.

    Hmm.... should I boost up to like 1/2 cup? or a whole cup?

    I got ripped on this protein stuff. I got like a pound...maybe less for $15. Bullshit. HEB sucks. Where can I get cheaper Whey Protein? Where can I buy Steel Cut Oats?

    Yeah $15 for a pound is pretty bad. Optimum Nutrition whey is pretty popular around here because it's decent nutritionally and it's pretty cheap, even it if it isnt the best tasting..around $30 for 5lbs.

    I just took a scoop of ON and put it in a measuring cup and 1 scoop is about 1/3 cup...most people use 2 scoops per shake so that's around 2/3 cup assuming the stuff you have is similar. Do you have any serving size/nutritional data?
