View Full Version : Replacement for oats and cottage cheese

These two foods seem like a staple to any bulking diet. Is there any replacement for these?? Eggs instead of CC?? Yams instead of Oats?? Any ideas?

Hi there,

A great replacement for oats I have found is Kasha - aka hulled buckwheat. They come as hard pellets which you boild for 10-15 minutes. You can have them savoury (like rice, with some onions or veggies etc.) or sweet (like oats, with cinnamon and splenda). They taste great and are REALLY filling!

I asked in a previous thread if anyone knows how cooking affects their GI (if too much cooking kills their good GI which is rated at about 54). Maybe someone can fill us in here?

Cottage cheese - any lean protein source I guess with slower protein - eggwhites, tuna etc.
