Gluten-Free Oats for Breakfast
If you fear you might suffer from gluten intolerance, or even if you just want to improve your health and well being, you should consider eating more gluten-free oats.
Oatmeal is a whole-grain food. That means it contains all the healthy parts of a grain that are lost when it is processed. Specifically, the endosperm, germ, and bran of grains are lost when they are processed. All that is left is the endosperm, the inside part of the grain. The problem is that most of the nutritious value of grains is locked up in the outer part. When you eat oatmeal, you are also eating the endosperm, germ and bran, and benefiting from many health benefits.
Benefits of Oat Meal
Science has proven some of the advantages of eating whole-grain gluten-free oats. To start with, oats can lower your cholesterol. That is right: instead of using expensive medication to control your cholesterol, you can just follow a diet that contains more whole foods. And oatmeal is one of the most natural whole foods to obtain, and it does not cost very much either. What is more, oatmeal can improve your blood sugar levels. You know those sudden dips when your blood sugar crashes and you feel faint and ravenously hungry? If you eat gluten-free oats for breakfast, you will probably stop experiencing this sensation, because your blood sugar will be much more stable than if you ate a sugary cereal or skipped breakfast altogether.
Oatmeal can lower your blood pressure as it contains antioxidants which are found almost only in oats called avenanthramides. Avenanthramides work in your body to lower your blood pressure. If you are struggling with weight loss, oats for breakfast may be your solution. Gluten-free oats make you feel fuller for longer, which means that you do not crave fatty, unhealthy food. Oats stays in your digestive system for longer than many other foods, which means that your body does not send a signal to your brain to say that you need to replenish yourself.
Moreover, scientific studies have demonstrated that gluten-free oats help to release a particular hormone, called the satiety hormone, which tells your brain that you do not need more food. The key to a healthier diet and lifestyle is to eat a nutritious breakfast every morning. And there is no breakfast more nutritious or better for your body than whole-grain, gluten-free oats.

Tips: How to make your oatmeal breakfast more satisfying, yummy, and filling!
- Make it with milk or a non-dairy alternative as rice milk and almond milk.
- Use packaged instant oatmeal instead of rolled oats.
- Add some walnuts, slivered almonds, pecans, chia seeds, flax seeds, etc.
- If you want more protein in your oatmeal:
- Make the oatmeal with milk instead of water. Soy milk is a better protein source, or you can add some protein powder if you want.
- Adding an egg to your oatmeal! Just whisk the egg properly before putting it in a microwave. It will make the oatmeal a little fluffy! No need to toss the yolks, either – as they contain all of the egg’s fat soluble vitamins!
- Adding some fruits will make it nice and sweet and creamy. Adding berries to oatmeal will make it delicious.
- Add some Pumpkin Seeds to make it more tasty.
