Another dairy byproduct is Whey protein isolate. I'd say go with Whey or Egg protein suplements and either mix them with water/juice or mix it in your food. 25g per serving is a ton of protein, the equivalent of a huge steak or chicken breast, and much easier to digest.

I'm afraid not. Both quinoa and soy are complete proteins by themselves (at least, when not GMO). You would have to combine oats with beans (blech!), seeds or nuts to end up with a complete protein.

I like oats with walnuts, which makes it a complete protein AND delicious.

Cute guy on the label! laugh Our oat guy isn't nearly as good-looking.

I purchased Sam's Club instant dry milk today for $13.54 for a 22 qt 4.4lb (2kg) box and vacuum sealed it... best price I've seen in a while for cash and carry outside of LDS cannery

i talked about this years ago,but,parched corn rough ground is said to be the best "powdered" food.i made a batch years ago and ran a few photos here.the taste is not bad and you need to know how to eat it,spoon fulls followed by cold water.just eating it results in it sticking to you teeth. pea meal works the same way.

Its not powdered, but wheat germ is an excellent survival food. It does goes rancid after awhile so be sure to check the date and keep it in the fridge after opening.

"Dundee Cake will last approx 3-6 months when stored in an air tight cake storage tin (if you can wait that long grin )"

Pretty good suggestion. I think I'm going to try making one of these cakes every 4-6 months and storing it in a cake tin.

I like several of the other suggestions above as well. I'm curious about the "parched corn". Was this just corn kernels that were dried and then ground? Or did you bake it in the oven at a low temp??
