The Pain of Porridge.

I hate porridge. It sickens me, but I eat it because it's quick (I don't have much time in the mornings), it's easy (I'm lazy), it's a decent carb source and I'm trying to bulk on the cheap.

My question is whether there is any real difference in nutritional value between oats and milk mixed and cooked to make porridge and oats floured in a blender, mixed with milk and chugged, assuming the same amount of both oats and milk are used.

Thoughts?

    I'd say its the same thing. Other ideas, why not flavour the oats with honey or cinamin ??, maybe some splenda. Or have uncooked oats with natural yogurt. Or why not have no added sugar museli ??

    It's not that the taste of the porridge is that bad. It's just everything. I've been eating it for breakfast for so long I just can't stand it anymore.

    I've been putting a few handfuls of all-bran in mine before cooking then mix it all in at the end. Tastes a bit like mashed up hot weetabix. But if you're sick of it, you're sick of it and disguising it probably won't help! Have something else for a while and you might even start to miss porridge!

    I used to eat whey with ready brek raw.

    I hate porridge.

    Now i make homemade flapjacks from ,porridge, egg whites and raisins., washed down with a cup of whey.

    it is easier to eat and u can munch them at work.

    U just have to make them the night before, say 3 days suppy worth.

    just blend them up with milk, peanut butter, yoghurt, whey, cottage cheese, fruit, chocolate milkshake, marmite, mustard, baked beans, whatever.

    Get yourself some splenda - I use this with fruit and it's the most awesome tasting **** on this planet

    I can eat this stuff 'til the cows come home!
