Getting sick and tired of traditional oats for breakfast?
Steel cut oats are a fantastic alternative, with a crunchier texture and a nutty taste.
Steel cut oats differ from old-fashioned, rolled oats in only one way: they are not rolled flat into flakes. Instead, the whole toasted oat grain, or groat, that is used to produce rolled oats is cut into thirds to yield steel cut oats.
The low glycemic index of steel cut oats prolongs the feeling of satiety after eating by preventing rapid peaks and dips in blood glucose levels.
Oats are extremely nourishing for the digestive system and if you fluid retention, they can be very useful in assisting to soak it up.
Steel cut oats should be cooked on the stove, as oppose to a microwave. When cooking, you will notice that steel cut oats don't expand like flake oats will.
Take 1 cup of steel cut oats and 1 cup of water - Place on stove, bring to boil and let simmer.
Whilst simmering, add in a tablespoon of black chia seeds, a tablespoon of goji berries, a tablespoon of Acai powder and 8 almonds.
You can add milk and honey to sweeten.
