in order to use up our stock of quick-cooking oats (and improve my diet, too) i thought i'd try eating oatmeal for dinner, instead of rice. so i cooked one cup of quick-cooking oatmeal in 4 cups of water. when i scooped it in a bowl, i added milk, pecans, almonds, cashews, and raisins. i'm hoping the crunchy nuts would make it nutritious and filling enough, and the fiber would also help the intestines. 1. is my chunky oatmeal okay for dinner? 2. by the way, do you pronounce almond as ah-mond? and is it PEE-can or pee-CAN?

I am not a fan of oatmeal, I tried having it for breakfast and I end up eating rice.

rice for breakfast is too heavy for me.

@hereandthere Sometimes I only have bread and coffee, and most of the time with rice.

As far as I am concerned, you can have whatever you want for dinner . That being said, I did read that we should avoid nuts in the evening . . . I guess it takes a while to digest, so we tend to gain weight if we sleep before food is done in our system. Oatmeal is good as long it's not the sugary flavored kind. Almond . . . I do say AH-mond. Pecan . . . I say pee-KAWN . . . but when I was growing up, maybe because we never had pecans at home, I used to think they were PEE-ken.

oh, i was just curious if oats or nuts had elements that helped you relax or energized you. but if it takes a while for nuts to digest then i guess it has to be eaten earlier. we either have rolled oats or quick-cooking oats, not those flavored ones in one-serve sizes. it was only in recent years that i heard almond without an L. i also used to stress the PE but saw from youtube a few months ago that the pronunciation varies by country.

@hereandthere Oh, energy - that I don't know. Carbs naturally would give you energy, right? Nuts, I don't know - I don't feel particular relaxed or energized - just fuller .

I'd prefer it for breakfast, but there are no rules about when to eat things! I like it to give me energy to start the day.

My eating habit has greatly changed. I’m a rice eater through and through but I can only have my fill when I’m in Davao. ;)

Sounds okay. I eat what tastes better regardless of how healthy or nutritious it is

i guess i treat oatmeal like rice. i need an ulam (pork, chicken, meat or veggie dish) to go with it.

they say oatmeal has fiber to help "sweep" the colon. however, we use real oats, like rolled oats or quick-cooking oats, not instant, or those that you pour in a mug and add hot water.

I think it's okay for dinner but I just like my oats for breakfast. I usually add milk and sugar, or chocolate powder(Milo or Ovaltine or protein powder) or coffee creamer and sugar. I say, al-mond. Hihihi and for me it's PE-CAN. What's the right pronunciation? Awww

i've added milo on oatmeal to make it champorado, or tablea (cacao). i like evaporated milk, but powdered will do.

if it makes good to you its alright to have oatmeal for your dinner. Of course, I cannot do that because I will always look for rice.

I think whatever you want for dinner is okay. It sounds quite a big meal and quite healthy but I'm not really into what foods are good or bad - only what foods I like or I don't like!

Adding all those foods to the oatmeal should make it very healthy.
