Rolled oats, compared to many processed grains, are still highly nutritious. The nutritious outer husk is relatively intact as the grain is lightly steamed and pressed into flat flakes. Used in muesli, porridge, biscuits, they are an excellent start to the day. Don't be tempted to buy instant oats - they may take less time to prepare but are less nutritious and won't keep you feeling full for as long.
Look for organic rolled oats (not instant)and store in the fridge in an airtight container especially throughout summer.
You can save a fortune when you make your own muesli both natural and toasted and it's usually much better.
Look for organic rolled oats (not instant) in your local greengrocer. Buy from a store with a high turnover of produce to ensure freshness.
