In my FITNESS BLOG I'd mentioned the pitfalls of instant oatmeal and why you should be sticking to good old fashioned steal cut oats instead.
**Lower glycemic index and blood sugar response
**Greater satiety (you feel fuller, longer)
**Greater vitamin and mineral content
**Greater overall nutritional value
Besides, if you're like most, you'll MUCH prefer the firmer texture and nuttier flavor of
steel cut oats
over mushy, bland instant oatmeal.
But even steel coat oats can be pretty plain by themself, so here are a number of ways to spice up your morning oatmeal and turn it into a bowl of mm goodness.
My FAVORITE; perfect before or after a workout.
1. One tablespoon of organic crunchy peanut butter along with a tablespoon of natural raw honey, you have your good carbs, protein and good digestible fat, the good fat.
Remember all fats are not created equal.
2. Add honey and berries. Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and/or blackberries are all extremely low glycemic and are packed with inflamation and disease fighting antioxidants...drizzle with a little honey and enjoy the sweet goodness. Very filling, fiber packed...you'll love it.
3. Add unsweetened cocoa powder, stevia, and banana slices. This is another one of my faves. 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder contains only 12 calories and adds another 2 grams of fiber to your oatmeal! Sweeten it up with some stevia or truvia, and then top with banana slices. Tastes like dessert...only it's oatmeal!
