Tricks and recipes for getting rolled oats into your family
For years I have tricked my family into eating oats. Yes, plain rolled oats.
No one in my family happens to be a famous star in Outlander, so nobody liked porridge in the mornings.
Nobody really liked oaty cakes or biscuits.
So ….. I tricked them into eating rolled oats.
- When making a stew or curry that used minced meat – I’d replace 1/3 of the meat with rolled oats.
- In a slow cooker soup, I’d throw 3/4 cup of oats in.
- Making spaghetti Bolognese? Swap 1/3 of the meat for rolled oats.
- If you’re cooking lasagne? Do the same thing – 1/3 of the meat can be swapped out for rolled oats.
- Why not add rolled oats to a smoothie?
Why eat rolled oats?
Oats are among the healthiest grains on earth. They’re a gluten-free whole grain and a traffic source of important vitamins, minerals, fibre, and antioxidants. Rolled oats have many health benefits, including weight loss, lower blood sugar levels, and a reduced risk of heart disease.
So, get your oats in where and when you can.
