Oat. My. Gosh. I have died and awoken in the oatmeal promise land.
Get ready to join me on a journey my chickpea pals because today I have for you oatmeal EVERYTHANG.
When I say oatmeal, you say, "two-minute microwaveable packets you can sometimes top with cinnamon, nuts, and berries if you're feeling extra fancy pants." Mmmmm no.
Fasten your seat belts because I have some breaking news for you: oatmeal is not simply a one-stop, quick n' easy boring breakfast in a bowl. When it comes whole grain oats, there is a plethora (you heard me... I just whipped out PLETHORA) of ways to prepare them. There's the classic oatmeal, overnight oats, oatmeal cookies, cakes, pancakes, waffles, bars, granola, and even finger-lickin' good savory oatmeal recipes. Need I go on? Not only are they diverse and mouth-watering, but they are good for your heart, too.
Whole oats are crazy rich in fiber and phytochemicals. This fabulous solube fiber profile helps keep you satisfied longer, contributes to a healthy digestive system, and regular consumption can even help to lower bad cholesterol and reduce risk of heart disease, the number one killer in America. Keeping oats as a regular staple in your diet can do wonders for your daily health and your daily glow. #glowup #oatup

YESSS an ode to oats. My fav and most versatile food. When I first met my fiance he ate quick outs cooked in the mic with a few strawberries and not enough water so they were sticky My how we've evolved. Ha! Love making some pancakes out of them best!
