Thanks Me too. I did read that brown and wholegrain are the same but surely if that was the case then more manufacturers would write 'wholegrain' on the packaging. Next cheapest I could find was Morrisons at £2 so its quite a saving..

What reason do you have to believe brown rice is not wholegrain? Genuinely interested, as always thought they were one and the same.

I am familiar with the fact that brown bread is most certainly not, necessarily, wholegrain, but I thought rice was different.

Update:

From wiki, "Brown rice is whole grain rice, with the inedible outer hull removed; white rice is the same grain with the hull, bran layer and cereal germ removed. ... Whole rice has a mild, nutty flavor, and is chewier and more nutritious than white rice."

So if we believe wiki, perhaps save yourself the money and buy supermarket's own brand where available (e.g. Sainsburys).

What made me suspicious is the fact that 'wholegrain' is a buzz word. Even crappy cereals like to put that is contains wholegrain goodness, so surely if you were a manufacturer you would put wholegrain for shelf appeal?

I buy wholegrain where I can, including oat groats and wheat grain for flour making. It certainly helps digestion

Agree wholeheartedly, but wish I could actually establish what "brown" rice is, if it isn't wholegrain!

Edit: P.S. there's nothing quite like oat groat porridge :-)

You should pop into home bargains. I eat a lot of brown rice, so I bought 20 bags of East End 1KG bags at £1 each!

I just try to source the wholegrain so there is no niggling doubt in the back of my mind. You hit the nail on the head with the brown bread thing..

I eat oat groats probably 5 - 6 mornings a week, and just jazz it up with fruit, or cocoa or whatever I fancy. I try to do the two meals a day thing and I find i'm not hungry until around 3pm.

You should research a lady called Ellen White. Way ahead of her time in terms of dietary advice. If you go to egwwritings.org and search for two meals, you'll find she was promoting this as far back as the 19th century. Her book "Counsels on Diet and Foods" is a fascinating read to anyone interested in eating well...

That sounds interesting thank you. I became interested when reading about fasting. I don't really have any excess weight but like the idea of cell renewal etc. Then I started eating only when hungry, which turned out to be usually just twice a day. I found that my waist got smaller and stomach flatter. I have never been a 'snacker' either so that works in my favour.

Interested to know where you buy your groats and the price you pay? I use a blend of porridge oats, oat bran and jumbo oats to make porridge but groats may replace this mixture. Thanks

I'm 99% Certain this was on sale at Aldi this week for 79p

Hi there. I buy organic oat groats by the 25kg sack from either Whole foods online or Real foods online. Whoever is cheapest at the time. It is around £30 so a real cheap healthy breakfast.
I have an oat crushing machine (as you do..) so the groats fall between two steel plates and then look like shop bought oats. But the beauty is they still have all the bran and they turn very milky even though I only ever add water to them. I also roll some oats then add coconut oil and bake them with a few seeds/nuts to make a crunchy topping. I can honestly say I look forward to my porridge even though I eat it most days. I just add different things daily.

75p in Aldi or 2 for £2.50 in Coop not exactly a deal

1kg Tilda Brown Basmati Rice £1.29 in-store @ Heron Foods Gateshead branch and Consett branch. Also 1kg Tilda Long Grain White Rice 99 p.

Thanks for that reply. Now I'll have to Google oat crushers! May stick to stocking up on my Mornflake oats when they're on offer. I find them to be the creamiest brand when made with water.
I've looked at the oat crushers, some look like instruments of torture. You really are well prepared for a zombie apocalypse, aren't you? oO

Better to be safe than sorry! I paid about £70 for my eschenfelder flocker but I must have had it twelve years. It has paid for itself in that time as groats are so cheap. Great bit of kit
