When prepared properly and coupled with the right ingredients, oatmeal is a very satisfying and nutrient rich choice for breakfast. When soaked overnight, oats will cook as quickly as the instant kind, and are much easier to digest.
I like to serve oatmeal with coconut oil, real butter, ghee or cream, as adding fat actually assists with digestion. Fat is your friend. Fat from clean sources that is. Fat consumed from real, organic grass fed butter is utilized by the body far more efficiently than fat from a breakfast doughnut.
In my household, this "Awesome Gluten Free Oatmeal" recipe is a breakfast favorite. To soak, we use warm water with fresh-squeezed lemon (see actual recipe for instructions). If you tolerate dairy you can use a spoon of kefir or yogurt.
Please note that while oatmeal is naturally gluten free, it can become cross-contaminated with other grains that do have gluten while being processed and packaged. If you follow a gluten-free diet, I recommend choosing a brand of oats clearly labeled as gluten free.
Enjoy this nutritious old-fashioned oatmeal recipe and start your day filled with energy.
