  • SOAKED OATS

    by Nathane Jackson on December 7, 2014 in NUTRITION, Recipes // NO COMMENTS

    As a nutritionist, I hear a lot of different reasons why people don’t have time to make a healthy meal in the morning.  Eating nutritious, nutrient dense meals doesn’t have to take an hour to prepare and in fact, this recipe takes all of three minutes the night before, and a minute or two come the morning.  Sound good?

    Gluten Free Oats

    Only Oats are manufactured in a gluten free facility

     

    For those of you who suffer from Celiac or Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity, then you are probably well aware that many of the oats available at grocery stores are processed in facilities that also handle gluten containing grains. Only Oats is a Canadian company that manufactures their oats in a gluten free facility and offer a variety of other products such as flours, steel cut oats, quick oats and mixes all helping to bring variety into your daily nutrition.

    On to the recipe…
