Grain-free Oatmeal Recipe
Let’s talk about grains and this phenomenon of a grain-free oatmeal. When I first heard of grain free oats, I’ll admit that it seemed a little far-fetched. I mean, there’s nothing more comforting or warming than a big, deep bowl of oatmeal. In fact, as I write this there is snow falling outside my window wrapping the city in a big, white albeit chilly blanket. When Winter hits hard, I always seem to crave a warm bowl of oats.
But I’ll be honest, oats don’t always keep me satiated until lunchtime, and I’ve also been experimenting with cutting back on grains. There’s nothing inherently wrong with grains, but it’s important to understand just how much of certain foods your body needs for optimal wellness and performance. I’m finding I need fewer grains and I like a more protein-packed breakfast, so this grain-free oatmeal does the trick.
My recipe is inspired by my sugar-free friend, Nicky Skinner. She gets the credit for converting me to a grain-free aficionado. I guarantee this recipe will do the same for you.
