    Did you guys know they feed grains and oats to cows to fatten them up before the slaughter?

    Slaughter animals =/= martial artists. What's your point?

    My point is, that if you want to get stronger you need to eat like stronger animals. For example pandas eat lots of bamboo! Pandas are REALLY strong! Just eat 2-3 times your bodyweight in bamboo a day, and you're set!

    In any event, I just put some honey in my oatmeal.

    To my 1/2 c. oatmeal I add 2 cups of milk, 2 Tbls peanut butter, scoop of protein powder, a banana, some honey and a dash of cinnamon.

    Then I blend it up for a wonderful tasting homemade weight gainer shake.

    Just make DAMN sure you're not getting quick or instant oatmeal. Get steel-cut or pinhead oatmeal. They digest slower so less impact on your blood sugar, but get them mainly cause they taste better.

    Also, you're right about cranberries. Good stuff, but I 'd think any dried fruit would work.

    If you're going quick and dirty, Quaker Rolled Oats is your best bet.

    But for the powerhouse, yes, steel-cut is your best bet. The problem is you have to boil that **** like pasta. One part oatmeal to three parts water. So, 1 cup of oatmeal needs 3 cups of water.

    Fortunately for me i actually enjoy my oatmeal plain. No extra sugars at least for breakfast.

    I might try adding protein powder though.. that does sound interesting.

    Savory cereal:

    1/2 cup quinoa
    1/2 cup steel cut oats
    1 tsp cumin seed
    1 tsp ajwain seed
    1/2 tsp fenugreek seed

    cook for 30 minutes in 8 cups water.

    add 1/2 chopped onion, 1/4 cup date pieces, and shredded coconut to taste. cook ten minutes longer. add 1/4 cup salsa, a tablespoon or two of minced cilantro, and a teaspoon of salt. Let sit for at least ten minutes to absorb flavors. Serve with large quantities of nutritional yeast.
    I would liken it to the boxing or the muay thai of internal kung fu, even though that's like calling apples the oranges of the apple world. --WalkOn
