    Chocked full of anti-nutrient goodness!
    When I crave porridge I soak ground chia and raw sprouted hemp overnight then gently warm it up with apples and cinnamon... Perhaps a bit more primal/paleo and certainly more nutrient dense.
    When we crave porridge, I boil rice until it breaks down.

      I often have Eden Organic's Rice Flakes. They are very similar to oatmeal but rice seems to be a little more benign than oats.

          The simple fact is that eating oats as a staple is not in line with the principles of the primal blueprint. People can adapt this way of eating however they want. But if you are new and trying this out, I would leave oats out - at least for a while.

            Really, it leaped RIGHT off of my computer monitor, held me at gunpoint alllllll the way
            to the kitchen, then stood there and threatened me to make oatmeal or "it'd shoot".

            So I did. At 10:30am. And they were delicious. And I didn't die. And I didn't bloat. And, and, and,
            the world didn't explode.

            And?

            I'm still full 3hrs later.

            Sue me.

              I could eat them, too; probably wouldn't be struck down by either bloating or Mark Sisson with a thunderbolt. It's just that if I made a habit of it, I'd be a bit fatter, a bit hungrier, probably have a bit of joint pain, maybe have some skin/ hair problems come back...

                True dat to the tenth power.

                But they *were* tasty.

                I think it'd been a year since I had any?

                Didn't feel any deleterious effects at the time, but yeah, on an every day basis, boy howdy I would.

                  I guess it depends on if you were brought up on it.
                  Probably. When I was growing up, the selection of breakfast porridge was rice, buckwheat, millet, cream of wheat, oatmeal and barley. We never had cold cereals. And I just never liked oats, while I liked other porridge, most of all buckwheat. I rarely miss it, basically only made a substitute a couple of times (flax and peanut butter back when I was doing whole foods, but not Primal yet).

                  When I look at nutrition, I have a feeling that buckwheat and millet are also better picks. I keep waiting that someone discovers them as super-food, but so far it's still quinoa.

                    When I decided to start losing weight, I started eating steel cut oats, every morning. Lost 50lbs. Cut them out along with most all other carbs and added more fat, and weight loss slowed until finally it screeched to a halt.

                    Not saying it was from quitting the oats, not saying anything really. Just sayin'
                    65lbs gone and counting!!

                      There is a disconnect between nutritional research and the real world application thereof. Although they found that people in a laboratory setting lost weight when they had oats for breakfast, in the real world they found they gained, because most of them ate an uncontrolled portion and put lots of sugar on them. I enjoyed oats for breakfast and found them satisfying back then, and I would still be eating them if they didn't make me hurt.

                        A friend of mine decided to switch to eating oats for breakfast, she lost 14lb in a month, I eat them I gain 14lb, and that's not all, I just can't digest them, after eating them its like a war in my tummy.
                        So as usual your mile may vary, experiment and see how it works for you.

                            If you want something good, 'for the kids', make some no-bake cookies with raw oats, coconut flakes, cocoa powder, butter, and coconut sugar or whatever. Then mix in some raw potato starch after they cool, but before they get too hard to stir (mix it with water first). Then put in fridge to harden. Super fiber/RS bombs.

                              Humans have been cultivating wheat/grains since before the 'neolithic' age. Einkorn, having originated in modern day turkey i believe, and spelt have been part of the human diet for well over 10,000 years.
                              Limiting your food choices based on the necessary, dietary restrictions our ancestors faced is certainly not 'ideal'. I would guarantee that in that position, you'd cultivate and not complain. No grains has got to be one of the biggest fallacies of Palaeolithic eating habits.
                              Not to say you're wrong for not eating them, do what you want. I just strongly disagree with banning foods just because a man with a book and a theory said to!
                              Clearly, i eat oats! Best thing to come back to after a 2h run in the rain (Britain based) is a hot bowl of porridge. I would hardly eat them un cooked though. Cooking makes it safer, more bioavailable, and easier on the ol' digestive tract. (At least in my experience..)
