Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal

Serving size: ½ cup

DIRECTIONS:
You can prepare the oatmeal with water or with low-fat milk for added
protein. For cooking times, follow the directions on the package box.

Be sure to choose steel cut oatmeal, a whole grain that retains vital nutrients. Pre-packaged rolled oats, which are processed, have fewer nutritional benefits and may contain added sugars.


Debbie’s Nutrition Notes: This energy-giving breakfast provides important blood sugar benefits that will help you manage pre-diabetes and diabetes. Steel cut oats have a low glycemic index, giving you energy while helping to keep your glucose levels steady.

A high fiber content also helps protect your heart by lowering cholesterol and blood pressure. A serving of steel cut oatmeal provides approximately 4g-5g of protein, as well as calcium, B-vitamins and essential minerals.
