Have you eaten your steel cut oats today?

Cold cereal is a common breakfast, however they’re often filled with sugar an worse-corn syrup.  Steel-cut oatmeal is a far better option.  These essential grains are inherently full of nutritional value and are high in B-vitamins, calcium, protein and fiber while low in salt and unsaturated fat. One cup of steel cut oatmeal contains 8 g of insoluble fiber.  According to the USDA, whole grains reduce cholesterol and high blood pressure and even help prevent heart disease, cancer and diabetes.  Whole grains also help flush fat and cholesterol out of your system and provide powerful antioxidants that help you stay healthier, look younger and live longer.  We have steel cut oats on our breakfast bar daily here at Ellwood’s Local Market.  Come on in and get your daily bowl!
