Oats, scientifically known as Avena Sativa are highly a nutritious cereal grain. As you’ve heard many times before, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It, therefore, makes sense that it should also be healthy. As oats are both filling and packed with health benefits, what better way to start your day than with a breakfast including oats. Although oats are high in carbohydrates, they are also higher in fibre (beta glucans), protein and fat than most other grains. They are also high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
