I have just done an oats weigh-in. . . . .

Daily breakfast serving @ 220 grams of Oats approx.

PS. I did not mention the rolling around on the floor in agony for half an hour, ( edit : AFTER the porridge ), before moving anywhere. :wink:

I assume you are referring to cooked weight here, My portion is about 45 grams before adding milk, but the dog ends up with about a quarter of what I make ? yes the dog likes porridge And as Vorpal asked why are you rolling around in agony ?

Sorry, not clearly described.

( In storyland ) I roll around floor AFTER the shedload of porridge. Yes 220g ( dry-weight ) of oats.

Actually I don't have any problem eating that lot every morning. Very yummy. And I don't need any more food for about six hours.

Highly recommended. :mrgreen: Waist measurement 32" . . . .

Eating 220 g of oats for breakfast is impressive. I have a large mug which I use to measure my oats, and I know I eat a large portion – some would say very large. So I just weighed the oats in my mug. Barely 100 g!

My breakfast is 60g oats (plus 100ml milk & 250ml water)

Breakfast this morning.

Two mugs of tea.
Two rashers of back bacon, fried.
One large egg, fried.
A spoonful of leftover mashed potato, fried.
One doorstep of granary bread, lightly buttered.
One cup of instant coffee.

Followed by ................
30mile bike ride, with 2,800ft of ascent. According to my computer, 1,300kcals consumed.

Then lunch .................

One doorstep of buttered granary toast.
One pickled egg.
One packet of Pom Bears (multipack sized)
Two chocolate digestives.
Two cups of tea.
Actually, the toast, the Pom Bears and the biscuits were shared to some small degree with the parrot! :lol:

honestly don't think I could eat a half of a Graham portion. I'd always assumed the 60g portion on the side of the box was a misprint. ANd I class my self as big eater :? :? :?
BTW is that 32 inch waist or the size of trousers you squeeze into . :oops: :oops:

Yes, I've been converted to them from crisps.
Lighter, fewer cals, less fat, less salt.

Whew, well done Ross K.

However, I am beginning to diagnose a major porridge deficiency amongst fellow forum users.
You must all try to eat more of this fulsome, healthy and life-enhancing sustenance.

I have i think declared a fondness for sainsburys finest oats.

And even as a bit of a cheapskate find a lot of other oats not worth the apparent savings - some look like fine wood shavings.

Can anyone recommend any generally available (ie not specialist outlet) alternatives to my sainsburys fave?

I used to get the cheaper essential/basics/sweepings but it was not great and as per bowl/day it's so cheap anyway I switched to better quality (as above) which is great stuff.

Freshly rolled oats, water, whatever available local berries fruit or nuts. Heat in a discarded beer can or other container on a homemade rocket stove with a bunch of dry twigs, how could anyone possibly be so busy that they wouldn't have a few minutes to do this? The taste cannot be matched by a 100 michelin starred eatery. Why would anyone want to eat plastic??
