Perfect Steel Cut Oatmeal
Most of us have a genuine desire to eat healthier. As we walk down the supermarket aisle, we’ll notice an oatmeal product and think ‘Hey, I’ll get some oatmeal! That’s gotta be good for me!” Not necessarily. Many oatmeal products (particularly some instant oatmeal products) include high fructose corn syrup, an exorbitant amount of sugar and salt and other processed ingredients that can offset some of the health benefits of oatmeal.
Oatmeal, without the processed ingredients listed above, has many health benefits. Here are just a few:
- Great source of fiber
- Assist with satiety (a feeling of fullness)
- Can assist in reducing cholesterol
- May assist in reducing the risk of heart disease
Steel cut oatmeal (or steel cut oats) in particular is less processed than most instant oatmeal.
Here’s how to prepare a great tasting, healthy bowl of steel cut oatmeal.
