    Grinding My Carbs!!!!!!

    i've been grinding my carbs in a coffee grinder and mixing them in protein shakes.(rolled oats, steel cut oats, brown rice, and dry pasta)
    is there any reason why i should not do this??
    the reason i ask is because this is so easy to prepare and consume yet i have not read any other post about others doing it.

    Interesting concept.. I don't think there should be any reason NOT to do this, however I have never done it before.

    oatmeal for instance

    i just take my desired measurement of oatmeal
    put it in a coffee grinder set the grinder on the finest setting and grind
    then i put the oatmeal powder in a blender with my desired measurement of protein powder and blend. WA LA

    like what?
    when i grind it its becomes pasta powder
    then i chug it down with protein and water
    as far as flavor i only have to deal with it for like 5 seconds


    any way thanks for all the replies i guess i'll keep ingesting my carbs in this fashion until i have a reason not to

    i'm actually suprised that nobody else does this
    i understand that alot of you probably enjoy eating some or all of these things
    but i cant be the only picky eater here.

    I do it with Oats

    I find Oats to be terrible wet, but as a dry powder I can handle them ok.

    I have never ground up my brown rice though. When you grind rice, do you just use 1/2 cup dry?

    Grits could be done this way too I assume but I dont mind the taste of grits wet.

    I do almost the same thing for breakfast. The oats get cut down pretty small in the blender. Not too bad a consistancy and tastes great...to me

    The only concern that I might have with this is during a cutting diet. I would think that the regular oatmeal would be more benifical as well as giving you some fiber. But, for a bulker when you are trying to get as many cals/carbs as possible, yeah.
