Benefits of Steel Cut Oats

I love steel cut oats! I have them every morning and generally make a large enough batch that allows me to keep it in the fridge to warm up every morning. They are a great source of fiber and minerals. Since they are low on the glycemic index they are great for weight loss and for diabetics. They are also linked to a decrease in heart disease risk and blood pressure control.

Go Raw! Even healthier!
