the only thing that bugs me about VeganMaster posts is that he always quote that same 2 or 3 studies about the importance of low-fat diets. I think I may have felt on the same study at least 30 times. As if this study is supposed to be the Supreme Answer to All the Mysteries in the Universe.
He said at least a dozen times :"the fat you eat is the fat you wear". Not true: I knew a guy who was a compulsive eater, eating all day because of stress -- foods like chips, chocolate, hot-dogs, pizza, etc -- and he didn't have a single atom of fat, because of his fast metabolism burning every calorie, and it's the samething for most people with ectomorph bodytype.

far off topic here... so back to oats: sometimes i throw them into shakes to bump up their fiber.
i also wonder rolled oats vs steel cut, what are the benefits?
last but not least: soaked and sprouted, soaked and cooked, cooked from dry, or blended from dry?
i usually do the latter 2 but am interested in the soaking approach in general and looking forward to try at some time...
