I’ve been working at home cleaning and getting rid of many things in my closets. Oh! It is unbelievable how such a small space can storage so many things! So it has been almost like a work out! climbing up and down the ladder, reaching up and down for boxes and suitcases. Carrying things from one place to another and still I have to put everything back in place. So last night I was thinking I needed a special kind of breakfast so I could have a boost in my energy and don’t give up on this command that I decided to undertake. Go for oats! I thought.
Oats are very healthy and they are even more heathy when raw. Cooking alters the structure of the food we eat and most of the time reduce its nutritious value. Raw oats gives you almost 5 times more energy, protein, fiber, minerals (such as calcium, iron, phosphorous, potassium and magnesium) and vitamins. Isn’t it incredible how much is lost in the cooking process? Besides, I think they are better raw than cooked, I like more their consistency when soaked. So simple and easy, just throw everything in a container, and put it in the fridge the night before.
