    Talking Steel Cut Oats Vs Plain Quick Quaker Oats?

    Hey Everyone - Ive Heard A Lot About Steel Cut Oats Lately, And That It Is Better For You Then Oatmeal? Is This True? And If This Is The Case, Should Women Be Aware Of This? I'm Looking To Lose Fat And Gain Some Muscle , If Anyone Knows Anything About The Difference Between The Two & If I Should Eat Steel Cut Oats Instead Of Quick Plain Oatmeal, Let Me Know! ALSO- EVERY MORNING I HAVE 1/2 CUP OF FIBER ONE WITH 1/2 CUP OF OATMEAL AND A CUP OF FAT FREE MILK, SOMETIMES ILL MIX A BANANA IN? IS THAT A GOOD BREAKFAST FOR FAT LOSS?
    Thanks!

    The main difference between the two is the amount of processing. Steel cut oats become rolled oats that become quick oats. Personally I like regular Quaker oats. Instant is too mushy. Steel cut are nice for a change up once in a while too. Steel cut take longer to cook, but they have a nice texture.

    I'd add some source of protein to that breakfast: eggs, egg whites or I mix 30 grams protein powder into my oats after they are cooked. Eating clean, well balanced meals under caloric maintenance will produce fat loss along with training and cardio.

    I don't think a person's gender has anything to do with oat consumption. They are good for everyone!

    Be aware that steel cut oats are calorically denser than rolled oats. 1/2 cup (dry) of rolled oats contains 150cals. 1/4 cup (dry) of steel cut contains 150.

    I think that's only because steel oats are finer cut - therefore smaller so 1/4cup=1/2cup - only a thought/observation.

    Steel cut oats are more calorie-dense, but you have to remember they are also more nutrient-dense on the whole. In addition, the more processed your oats are, the higher the GI rating is as well. In other words, steel cut oats are more of a slow-burning carb than quick oats.

    So, definitely take into account the additional calories you would consume if eating equal amounts of steel cut oats to more processed oats, but realize the benefits that come with those extra calories as well.

    Most people I know purchase old-fashioned oats as a happy-medium for cost vs. nutrition.

    Oh...and as for your breakfast, I'd eat just one form of carb and add a protein as suggested. Eating eggs/egg whites scrambled with veggies would be a great addition to your oats.

    Maybe move your fiber one to a later meal if it's something you enjoy, but again, pair it with something high in protein.

    When I'm in the mood to cook I eat steel cut oats. If I want something fast I eat oat bran. No matter which one I eat I add fresh berries. I also eat either egg whites or tuna as a protein source.

    Steel cut oatmeal is the best. It has a hearty texture, and leaves me feeling very satisfied until my next meal. Do yourself a favor, and throw out the processed oats. You'll be much happier with the results.

    I'm a huge fan of rolled oats & steel cut oats :-]
    Quick cooking oats have been overly refined - and (to me) it not only shows in the nutrients but also in the taste/consistancy (ick)!

    Question

    I'd love to give the steel cut oats a try, but I can't find them in the store to save my life! I've tried 3 local grocery stores and it's nothing but the regular stuff. We have a couple health food stores but they are small and pricey... is that where I need to try now?

    I either eat regular Quaker oats and toss in a teaspoon of flaxseed and some soy milk, or go with Elite Oats N' More. I feel fuller longer with Elite also packed with 34 grams of protein.
    Never tried Steel Cuts.

    Sometimes you find them as "Irish Oats"

    Hi Mrs_Muscles, two of my favorites are McCann's Irish Oatmeal, and Bob's Red Mill Oatmeal. McCann's is my favorite...and it comes in a tin can. Most store managers would be happy to order it as a regular item upon request.

    The health food store I frequent sells all types of organic oats in bulk bins at prices way below the prepackaged stuff. Bring your own container because those flimsy bags the store provides are an accident waiting to happen.

    I've only seen these bins at Whole Foods. I don't shop there too often because they're pretty pricey, but I pick up a bag to see what they taste like.

    grocery stores may carry steel-cut oatmeal under the name of McCann's Irish Oatmeal. The Quaker company also makes steel-cut oats but McCanns has been in business over 100 years. Good luck!

    Look for McCann's Irish steel-cut Oatmeal at Giant Foods, Wal-mart, K-mart and other big name chains. McCann's Irish Oatmeal is my absolute favorite!

    Thanks!
    Loving this thread. It is super informative! And I agree with the other ladies when they say that your breakfast has too many carbs and not enough protein. You can make turkey burger patties and eat a patty with the oats (kind of like turkey sausage) Or do eggs. In the morning I do 1 egg, 3 whites cooked and put over oats and topped with salsa. I've even eaten chicken or fish in the mornings just for some variety. Or if you have a sweet craving, you can mix the oats with a scoop of your favorite protein powder. I put some sliced almonds or berries (depending on the flavor of protein) in for texture and add some truvia or honey for sweetness.

    This thread is 4 years old, so the OP is probably not around anymore to hear suggestions But talking about oatmeal is always good!

    I eat steel cut oats every morning (I make a big batch once a week). I cook it with diced apples and apple pie spice. I add a scoop of protein powder and 1 tbsp natty PB and it keeps me full for hours! Its my favorite thing to eat, actually lol.

    Can you give us the play by play recipe?... and how does it hold up if you cook in advance? is it really thick, and you just re-wet with new moisture?

    Saw Oats on the main forums page, didn't realize I was jumping into the Female section to post in a 4 year old thread, but what the heck.

    I can't remember what I pay exactly at the grocery store, but just a quick google products search, 24oz of Steel Cut are around 6.50, and 42oz of old fashioned oats are around the same. 17-40g servings in the SC, 30-40g servings in the old fashioned, so pretty close to double the price which sounds about right.

    I like to put the steel cut variety in a coffee grinder, turn them into powder, and just throw them in shakes in the morning before I head out for work since I hate cooking in the morning. Convenient, and easy to drink. I do the same after work with a blender and regular oats since I have more time to clean up.

    I cook up my steel cut oats according to the Alton Brown Steel Cut Oatmeal recipe (I can't post the link since I'm so new here!)

    I just don't add the sugar, butter, buttermilk or milk ( I sub water). Once it's cooked I store it in the refrigerator and I take 1/2 cup servings at a time. I get about 6 servings out of it.

    So I'll scoop 1/2 a cup of the cooked oats in a bowl, add about 1/2 cup of soymilk and zap it in the microwave for 2-minutes. Then I add raisins, 30 grams of hemp seeds, and a couple tablespoons of chia seeds. It's my favorite meal of the day.

    I buy my organic steel cut oats from a co-op so it's $0.89 a lb. for a 25 lb. bag. The health food store sells organic steel cut oats and rolled oats for $1.39 a lb.

    Steel Cut Oats

    Steel cut oats are the same oats as in "oatmeal" but just in their purest form, the only thing to know about that is a steel cut oat becomes a rolled out after it has been soaked in water then rolled out flat, some of the nutrition is lost in the soaking process, quick cook oatmeal is rolled oats which have been part cooked in water then dried so the cook more quickly out of the box when we want to make oatmeal at home, so steel cut oats will be more calorie dense as there has been no 1 or or 2 stage soaking / cooking in water which has washed out some of the nutrition, minerals, fibre etc...
    I just take steel cut oats and do the following:

    1/3 cup of cut oats
    1 cup of cold water
    soak overnight
    in the morning heat them up in the water they soaked in simmer for about 8 mins while the coffee is making and hey presto there you have full nutrient oatmeal.
    ps: I avoid microwaves as they kill off the nutrients in the food so that there is less for your body to absorb, you get full but your body doesnt get the fuel it could use.

    Smile Steel Cut Oats

    Here is my trick for steel cut oats. Take 1 cup steel cut oats and put in a rice cooker with 3 cups water. When it's done, just slice into 4 equal portions and store in the refrigerator. Viola! Fast and easy
