Yummy and nutritious oatmeal. Oatmeal is gluten free and full of antioxidants. You can lose weight, lower your blood sugar and reduce your risk of heart disease.
What kind of oatmeal do you like?
Oatmeal comes in rolled out flakes that can cook slowly into a porridge or quickly, in an “instant”. You can have these with or without milk for breakfast. You can splurge and make oatmeal raisin cookies or apple crisp too.
Steel-cut oats are grains of oats that are cut into 2-3 small pinhead sized pieces. The name comes from the steel blades used to cut the oats. Steel-cut oats are a bit chewier than rolled oats and they take longer to cook but the taste is delicious when they are done.
Enjoy a bowl of oatmeal today, regular flakes or steel-cut and if you get a chance, drop off a box of oatmeal at your local shelter or food pantry. Share the goodness.
