How detrimental are oats to a paleo lifestyle

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created June 02, 2013 at 8:17 PM

I have now been on Paleo for just over a month and have recently moved back home from University. I am finding it much harder as I am living at home where there are non-paleo meals and food in the house and I have a job meaning I have little time to cook and prepare meals.

I am still managing about 90% Paleo, my only downfall is porridge for breakfast with traditional oats. I find it keeps me full until lunch like few other Paleo foods and only takes 2 minutes in the morning.

Will this have a negative effect on the benefits of a Paleo lifestyle, or is the 90% Paleo for the rest of the day enough to help improve and maintain my good health?

Thank you

I assume with the soaked baked oatmeal I can make a large batch, cook it in the oven and then reheat in the oven a serving every morning. Could a microwave be used to reheat it to save time?

I feel fine, and it stops me craving non-paleo snacks in the evening because I know I have had a high carb "cheat" breakfast. I will look into fermenting and soaking - thanks

Tomo, look up "soaked baked oatmeal" - tons of recipes on the internet. You can make if for your family and eat it all week. I bet they would love it, too.

How do you feel when you eat oats? If fine, then it's probably not horrible in the long run.

Please look into fermenting and soaking your oats before eating. Traditional porridge certainly does NOT only take 2 minutes, but it does reduce a lot of the harm caused by oats.

I agree...oats in the morning seem beneficial for me too as long as i dont add sweetening. A little salt, butter and fruit, with cinnamon, is very nice and tastes sweet enough once i a m resensitised to natural sweetness in whole foods.
