1 thread, 2 questions.....

Discussion in 'Dieting / Supplement Discussion' started by anti_clwntwn**, Jun 4, 2008.

  1. first, how does the d&s feel about frozen veggies? Do they have the same nutritional value as the fresh ones? I don't want to cut out fresh veggies completely, but i'd like to try the frozen ones with a couple meals because they're easier to cook and easier to digest (for me).

    two, how do you guys consume/transport oats? I want to start eating them pre-wo when i go off my cut, but i have to carry everything in a backpack all day cuz of my job (can't boil em like i do in the morn). So what type of oats to do eat before a workout and how do you eat them? anyone just down them "raw" with a shake?
     
  2. yes, many people down them raw with a shake. just throw a bunch of steel-cut oats in, blend, and ur good.

    I eat frozen veggies that you microwave. Might have more sodium but they're ok to eat. I wouldnt worry too much.

    Yup. Rolled oats + whey + blueberries + blender = delectable shake.
     
  6. Man, I'm finding blueberries add too much sweetness to my protein shakes. I still do it for the anti-oxidants, but damn.

    Anyways, rolled oats or steel-cut oats are fine (just in case you're wondering). Just make sure you don't get the instant stuff.

    I have found when making them in a shake, it's best to put the oats in first, by itself, and get it cut down real fine before adding the other stuff. Just my own personal advice. Having oats in your shake is great though.
     
  8. you're the dude, so i will heed your advice....lol
     
  9. you might be getting bloated from the creatine monohyrate (water retention)

    All my veggies are from frozen.

    I haven't ever had a problem



    Blueberries always seem to make my shakes a bit tarter.
    The tartness generally indicates higher antioxident levels

    I spent about 30 minutes putting about 2kg of oats into my blender in batches, blending them up unti they were dust and then storing them in one of my old 5 lb tubs. Ready to go then

    Frozen veggies are flash frozen at their prime so, if anything, they'd have more nutritional value than fresh veggies.

    I don't use oats preWO but if I was in your position and wanted too, I'd just grind them up in a powder and use them in a shake (like others have mentioned).
     
  12. good tip......

    Add BCAAs if it's too sweet.
     
  14. Do you refrigerate after? My oats say to refrigerate - and I do, but no idea why.
