Power Pack Your Oats

PB120020The benefits of oats have long been known.  They are packed with fiber which can keep you regular, lower cholesterol, lower blood sugars, and help you feel full longer.  For me, oats don’t seem to stick with me as long as I’d like, so I “power pack” them to give them a little more nutrition and create that lasting feeling.  Skip the instant and go for the old fashion type–they microwave in 3 minutes!  This is a great start to your morning and day!
