Steel cut (when I have the time) and Quaker Oats Weight Control Cinnamon (when I don't)

I love the old fashioned and some brands of the steel cut (supposed to be the best for you).

I prefer steel cut oats, I can eat them every day. Do whichever you prefer, and if you need a change of pace you can switch.
I like to cook them with craisins for a little sweet, or top with fresh fruit, and nonfat plain yogurt.

I prefer the steel cut oats because they are less processed.

I agree with the rest of the group about the nutritional components. However, why not have a different one everyday for variety. I add maple extract to my water that I cook my steel cut oats in. This way, I have the brown sugar flavor without the calories. Yummo.

If you like it, I love it.

I like that Good morning packets from Quaker oats, they take only two minutes to make in the microwave and lots of different flavors!

I agree with the other posters, the nutritional difference is minimal. Personally, I prefer steel cut oats with a little fruit to sweeten it up plus a small bowl of yogurt or cottage cheese. I find that combining carbs, protein, and fat in a meal (or snack) helps me feel full longer.

there really is so little difference I think you should decide on whatever tastes best to you.

Personally I think they are all so similar in their nutritional breakdown that it doesn't make "that" much of a difference. Go with which one you like better...

What is better and most filling for breakfast? I normally love steel cut oats, but I'm thinking multigrain is better. What do you think? I want one of these for breakfast tomorrow, I'm adding cooked apples and cinnamon to it.
