    Living on a tight budget as I do, I will add a handful of oat groats to my stews and soups ala barley. It thickens up nicely and adds calories for not much money and often extends a pot of soup 1 or 2 meals further which is all to the good when money is tight.

    Oats are rather contrary to Primal, I'd think.

    They are a grain. Not primal.

    Doesn't matter to me. In my opinion they are good and better than sweets when I fell like needing energy. Not being primal doesn't mean bad. I buy the organic ones and do not care about PB at this point. They contain a lot of good stuff. Yummy...and they do well when cooked if you suffer from bad digestion.

    I don't like them, and never did (and rice). I prefer millet or buckwheat because of texture and flavor.

    They were our go-to breakfast pre-primal.

    We still make it for our daughter.

    It's not completely banned, but like a bunch of other foods like cheese and vegemite, our consumption of it has gone through the floor since our tastebuds changed. Now it seems pretty bland and tasteless.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    Reasons why I eat them, although they are not primal

    - Yes, they contain carbs, but the good slow ones
    - they contain about 15% protein/100g
    - a lot of fibre, keeps me fueld for hours
    -Vitamine B1,6, E - very good for all your nervous systems and cells
    - zinc, good for your skin
    -beta-glucol, fighting high cholesterol
    - cookes good for the stomach when you feel sick
    -calcium,manganese, phosphor,selenium, iron (teeth, bones, blood)
    - help raising testosterone by their contents
    -> better than almost any other grains
    What else can sportmen ask for??
    If you do not like the taste: roast them in a pan, look for recipes, with cinamon, coconutflakes, chia seeds, sesam,agave sirup...be creative
