For me, oatmeal is a "magic food." It bulks me up and calms things down if I'm having some issues. That said, there have been others on this forum who have reported oatmeal as causing butt burn. But, DJBHusky has a good point: make sure you are eating the real oats, not the instant, which tends to have a lot of sugar and be overprocessed. It could be the other ingredients that are bothering you.

My pouch seems to love oatmeal.  I typically top it with fruit and that can cause issues (fresh blueberries are a no-no but are fine if I cook them in the oatmeal). I wanted to point out there were three types of oatmeal-the sugary, processed, flavored type that tend to come in packets, the slow cooked oats such as traditional, plain Quaker Oats and steel cut oats. The processed flavored oatmeal can take 60 to 90 seconds in the microwave, the slow cooked oats take a couple of minutes on the stove top and in the microwave and the steel cut take quite a bit longer, I believe up to 20 minutes to cook. Steel cut oats have a lot of fiber. If that’s the type you’re eating, that could be the problem and you may need to start with the more processed type (least amount of fiber) or try the slow cooked oats (some fiber but less than steel cut).  The pouch changes over time so I agree, give it a try again down the road.

I eat lots of nuts and seeds. I have a salad every day for lunch and put raw pumpkin seeds in it. I also eat pistachios, cashews and sunflower seeds. No issues eating them but I do chew them well. Chewing all foods well is crucial with a Pouch otherwise it comes out undigested.

I also drink cashew, almond and coconut milks. I get the unsweetened varieties. They are really good. Califia Farms make the best nut milks, although if you can't find it Silk is pretty solid.
