The synergy of nutrients in oats makes them an outstanding and inexpensive super-food suitable for the whole family. New discoveries, combined with what’s been known about oats for years, have shown they have wonderful health-promoting powers…. Oats are low in calories, high in fibre and protein, a rich source of magnesium, potassium, zinc, copper, manganese, selenium and thiamine.
Miranda’s Organic Oatmeal
- 1 cup of oatmeal
- 1 and a half cups of water
- Half a cup of goat milk
- 1 teaspoon of honey or maple sugar
- 1 tablespoon of soaked chia seeds
- 1 teaspoon of cacao powder
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Chia seeds – Chia seeds contain powerful and naturally occurring antioxidants – with 4 times more antioxidants than blueberries. Chia is nutritionally loaded with 5 times more calcium than milk, 3 times more iron than spinach, 15 times more magnesium than broccoli. I also like to add Chia to salads, smoothies and muffins.
Cacao Powder – I choose raw cacao powder that is cold pressed without chemicals, it has 360% more anti-oxidants than regular cocoa… that’s 21 more times than green tea! I also add to smoothies, cookie batter or desert recipes
