    Cliff bar and good coffee.

    I make things more complicated by adding fruit but the above works well if you are in a rush.

    Didn't realize "steel cut oats' would generate so many questions.

    I don't cook in a crook pot, though you can soak them 3 water to 1 oats overnight to take cooking time down to 10 minutes, but that isn't what the OP was asking. I just cook them at night, then refridgerate. They heat up in 2 minutes and keep well for 4-5 days.

    Oats in whole form are called Oat groats and sort of look like plump rice. You can cook and eat those too, or soak overnight to make muesli. Steel cut is just a less processed form than rolled oats. Once you see a whole oat groat you can easily visualize that grain being "diced" into small pieces for steel cut, or rolled out for "rolled" oats.

    Cool. I'm lazy so whenever I make steel cut oats, I throw them in the crock pot overnight. I know you are supposed to pan brown them in butter before you cook them, for a more nutty flavor, but I don't care.

    Really? We must be talking about 2 completely different things. I am referring to this:

    [​IMG]

    I put a scoop into a bowl, cover it with water and nuke it for a minute. It comes out cooked.


    You may have a different definition of "cooked" if you're cooking those old fashioned oats in 1-minute. The old fashioned oats don't come out right in 1 minute for me whenever I tried.

    I eat the same Quaker Oats brand, but specifically the one labeled "Quick- 1 minute" and I nuke that in the microwave for 1:30, which come out to my liking.

    I also used the "Quick 1 minute" oats When I ate oatmeal regularly for breakfast. A minute and a half in the microwave and they were done. I often added apples and dried cranberries to it.

    carbs and fat together are not so good.

    It doesn't really matter. The body regulates both blood sugar and serum lipids very well in most people and both are pretty omnipresent in the bloodstream. It's pretty normal for someone to have a fasted glucose level of 100mg/dL then eat a normal amount of carbs for a meal and have their blood sugar raise to perhaps only 115mg/dL or so. Insulin doesn't solely affect postprandial glucose -- it affects pretty much all glucose that enters the bloodstream, whether it's introduced by a bowl of pasta or released from liver stores from last night's pear cobbler.

    Besides, most people consuming 'fats' aren't drinking cooking oil, so the protein they consume raises insulin levels anyway (most likely through gluconeogenesis...the liver can only hold onto so many amino acids so converts the rest into glucose except for leucine and another which have strictly ketogenic metabolites).

    IDK, they come out soft for me. They are a bit chewy in the center, but it doesn't bother me.

    I eat bare naked granola with milk and a double espresso. Sometimes I eat a toast with honey or jam instead of the cereal.

    whacked - do you really make eggs benedict every morning?

    Interesting - I love eggs benedict but I'm pretty sure I'd end up hating them if I had them more than twice in a row

    ^strangely, the boys discovered that it was their all-time favorite breakfast. I didn't mind eating them that frequently but the constant making of teh hollandaise was kind of sickening after a while.

    served them over crabcakes instead of muffins to mix it up one morning.
