Re: Re Hanging
In a bag sealed, or in a container with a lid that screws on it would be OK to soak overnight. Nothing that can spill though ;-)

The best fiber comes from whole foods..... Just remember that the fiber that comes in drinks like this can cause cramping and explosive issues until you get used to it.

Re: a true instant whole grain hot cereal
You can do ANY whole grain by cooking and dehydrating, then you have instant. While oats can be ground down to make instant, other grains are much harder on the stomach and need cooking.

Re: Squashing startups
