Why Oatmeal?

Amongst many who don’t like Oatmeal and maybe never had one in their life because of the bland flavor consistency, and texture. I can agree with you on this. Until my 30’s as I was getting wiser and dealing with a newly found gluten sensitivity, I started searching for a better alternative for breakfast or snack that can keep me full and gluten-free for breakfast.

Benefits of Oatmeal

Oatmeal has countless benefits: lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, protection against skin irritation, and reduced constipation. Also, they are very filling and have many properties that should make them a weight loss-friendly food. Overall, oats are among the healthiest foods you can eat. After a little bit of research, I was convinced when my doctor recommended it could help my gluten issue because it’s gluten-free. I started with quick oats individually packaged, flavored, and sugar added to make it taste better. It was ok but too sweet because of the added too much sugar. After years of trial and error and many different oatmeal types, I have finally found the one I like and created my version. Not all oatmeals “are created equally”—one of the most famous brands, Quaker oats, unfortunately not gluten-free. Yes, oats are naturally gluten-free. However, during farming, transportation, and storage, farmers may unintentionally introduce gluten-containing grains like wheat, rye, barley, and spelled.
