Quick way to make the healthiest oatmeal. 1 PROTEN + 1 CARB.
Put 1/2 C steel cut oats and 2 C water in pot. Add pinch of salt. Give it a boil up - 10 minutes is good. Put the lid on. Turn off the heat competely. Leave the pot on the stove or count top over night. Next morning for breakfast: warm up the oat meal while stirring. Add 4 Tbsp flax seeds and walnuts if you like. Enjoy with coconut milk.
Choose organic oats; raw, organic walnuts; filtered water; and organic freshly ground golden flax seeds.
Steel cut oats can be made using time instead of heat. It takes at least 40 min to cook steel cut oats if you start from scratch in morning, but it makes itself over night if you start it off during dinner and just forget it on the stove with the heat turned off. You will get the highest Omega-3 content if you grind the flax seeds yourself right before serving. Golden flax seeds won't darken the oatmeal. 2 Tbsp ground flax seeds contain 9 g Omega-3 (Alfa-Linoleic), but we don't have to count it as fat. The fibers in the flax seeds will lower cholesterol and keep you regular. STEEL CUT OATS have a lower Glycemic Index (42) than rolled oats (51). The highest GI oats are the instant types (65).
