    So after i got some advice that my diet was lacking in complex carbs, I've been trying to balance it out more... Bulking, getting 1-1.5g/lb in protein, lots of vegetables, and now balancing out more with complex carbs....

    Do you put oatmeal IN the shake? does it blend? or taste like shit? Will be trying this post workout today, but curious....

    Recently i've been eating granola bars and wheat bread/ fresh fruit to get my carbs, thinking adding it directly to the shake would make life easier...

    also, want to recommend Smart Balance light to replace whatever butter/margerine you are using...has a mix of fats, has flax seed oil in it, and it tastes pretty damn good....

    Blend up the oatmeal into a powder before you put anything else into the shake

    I never liked oatmeal in my shakes, unless you manage to grind/powder it somehow before mixing the shake :dunno:

    I eat a bowl of oatmeal, then drink my shake. I tried blending some steel cut oats in one time, but I didn't like the texture.

    i usually eat a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, then sometimes again before bed :hs:

    make it with milk and it's got a decent amount of protein in it too

    I pre-blend it so its diner than usual, but not a powder. I don’t know why, but I like to chewy on the small flakes as I’m drinking my shake

    I just toss it all in the blender at the same time... oats, milk, protein, pb, bananas. Blend it for a minute or so and it fine. I don't mind little pieces of oats in my shake though

    I grind up flaxseeds and put them in my shake.
