I've never been able to finish a serving of oats. LOL.

I do not eat things that I don't truly like either. Whether it's healthy or not. Just doesn't make sense to me. There's enough "good stuff" out there to eat.

I don't eat cereal, but if I did, it would be the steel cut oats, I do rather like them - in small doses. but thinking about cooking them takes too long, so I just don't. My oldest daughter cooks up several days worth and then SIL has them for breakfast heated up. (I did have one dish of them while I was there - because they were already cooked)....

Yeah I am not a cereal fan either. Way to easy to eat a ton of it and not worth it. I occasionally do the steel cut oats and go the savory route with it (ie add egg whites and cook it up).

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie

A lot of low carb dieters don't eat cereals. I don't consider most of them all that healthy - especially the highly processed ones. Like all carbs they eventually convert to sugar - the less processed ones just take longer so they have less effect on blood sugar than dry cereal and instant oatmeal. If you eat oatmeal steel cut oats are the best choice.

They add sugar in order to make the cereals palatable. They would taste like cardboard otherwise.

I struggled for years gagging down oatmeal until I realized that it's now worth it for someone like me. Fruits and veggies are much better for you and a better use of my carbs.

I read lots of diet books and one I read mentioned that it is fairly stupid to force yourself to eat things that you hate because you think they are healthy. It rang true to me. Why waste calories on something you really don't like? Save them for things that you do. I limit my grains to ones I really love. I keep it to a serving and only have them occasionally, like long cooking brown rice, barley, quinoa, etc. I do the same with starches.

I don't eat honey either. For all it's health benefits it still is basically sugar.

Noticed even bran flakes and original bran and all cereals are loaded with carbs.

I figured all bran and such would not be. Sugar 2 ingredient in one bran cereal so odd to me,

I have just chosen to NOT go back to cereal.

I can NOT eat oatmeal and we are a tree nut free family and no coconut or honey allowed.

So, i cook real oatmeal baby loves it..

I was forced to eat it young and sit all day stare at the cold pot .

Over years i tried it and still gag on it hate it .

Why do fokes chose box, cold cereal if they read back maybe they not,


Seems the food industry should not be allowed to fib on front of a pkg

and unless i have my mag glass at store sure cant read the back.


I plan to get a new one for sure



iF YOUR NOT HAPPY TRY TO AT LEAST MAKE SOMEONE ELSE HAPPY. THEN YOU CAN SAY, I LIVED TODAY.
