If you are on a budget, camping, in a rush or just looking for something more balanced for breakfast then look no further. Oats are one of those things that you can really dress up or keep simple. Soaking your oats is not a necessity but I promise you that it is a gift! If you want to have better digestion and absorb all the nutrients this is the way to go (not to mention it cuts down the cooking time!)

This quick and affordable recipe goes incredibly with one of my homemade granola’s which you can browse here or any nut butters and seasonal fruits.

These little whole grains are boost heart health by lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol and blood pressure. They also help to maintain healthy blood sugar levels, and manage diabetes. Steel cut oats are sodium free and a great alternative to rolled oats which require a larger portion for the same amount of nutrition.
