OVERNIGHT OATS: QUICK AND EASY BREAKFAST OPTION

Overnight oats are great for busy mornings.  They are so filling and nutritious and you can play around with different flavors and toppings for each day of the week.

To make overnight oats, it’s ideal to soak them in plant-based milk overnight, or at least for a couple of hours. By soaking them, your body will absorb the nutrients much better.

OATS AND A GLUTEN-FREE DIET

Most people with coeliac disease or gluten intolerance can tolerate gluten-free oats with no problems. However, a small percentage of people may still react to avenin – a protein in oats similar to gluten. For these people, even certified gluten-free oats may be unsafe.  If you develop any new symptoms after adding gluten-free oats to your diet, it’s best if you talk to your dietitian or a doctor.

Another problem can be cross-contamination. Even though oats are naturally gluten-free, they are often contaminated with gluten because they may be processed in the same facilities as gluten-containing grains like wheat, rye, and barley. Therefore, if you have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, always make sure your oats are certified gluten-free to avoid any cross-contamination issues.
