Steel Cut Oatmeal

Filed in Nutrition by on 07/30/2017 Comments • views: 3304

Most of us have a genuine desire to eat healthier. As we walk down the supermarket aisle, we’ll notice an oatmeal product and think ‘Hey, I’ll get some oatmeal! That’s gotta be good for me!” Not necessarily. Many oatmeal products (particularly some instant oatmeal products) include high fructose corn syrup, an exorbitant amount of sugar and salt and other processed ingredients that can offset some of the health benefits of oatmeal.

Oatmeal, without the processed ingredients listed above, has many health benefits. Here are just a few:

  • Great source of fiber.
  • Assist with satiety (a feeling of fullness).
  • Can assist in reducing cholesterol.
  • May assist in reducing the risk of heart disease.

Steel cut oatmeal (or steel cut oats) in particular is less processed than most instant oatmeal.

When purchasing oatmeal, it’s important to read the label and avoid those brands with added sugar, salt or members of “THE 7”.

Here’s how to prepare a great tasting, healthy bowl of steel cut oatmeal.

Simmer 1-2 cups of water or 1% Low Fat milk. Add:

  • 1 cup of Steel cut oats.
  • 1 pat of butter.
  • 1 tbsp. of ground flaxseed.
  • 1 tbsp. of cinnamon.
  • 1 tbsp. of honey.

For an extra “protein punch” (to assist with muscle growth/repair and satiety) add 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa and 1 tbsp. of peanut butter.
