Gluten free oats–healthy AND safe
Gluten free oats belong in your diet as much as they should be in everyone else’s. Actually, people following a gluten free diet have added reason to add certified gluten free oats to their diets. For one, the beta glucans found in oats reduce bad LDL cholesterol and blood pressure, and they lessen both glycemic and insulin response. But those same beta glucans bolster immune system defenses against bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. Know anyone in the gf community who could use a little extra immune system strength?
The fiber in the organic quick gluten free oats gfJules offers also works on your body’s behalf, long after your yummy breakfast. Oats’ fiber gives you a fuller feeling, longer, so you’re less likely to feel hungry and snack. Also, one study showed 59% of elderly test subjects had discontinued their use of laxatives after just 6 weeks of daily oat bran consumption. Early oat consumption by young children has even been statistically linked to a reduction in the likelihood of the development of persistent asthma.
Gluten free oats aren’t just for breakfast
Although oats were ranked in one study as the best breakfast food for providing a sustained feeling of fullness, oats are just as adept in the lunchbox, the dinner table and as snacks. Jules makes oat flour by simply grinding or blending some of her gluten free oats, for use in bread, scones, muffins and more. Her oats make a proud and health topping to fruit crumbles and cobblers, too. And cookies?!?!?! You can toss oats into existing cookie recipes, just for fun! And of course, there’s no better cookie than a gluten free oatmeal raisin cookie. When’s the last time you had a moist, chewy gluten free oatmeal-raisin cookie? Here’s another idea: make some extra-large cookies, and make ice-cream sandwiches that you wrap in wax paper and put in your freezer for late-night snacks or as a please-everyone dessert surprise!
Jules loves her gluten free oats. After you pick up a bag here, click her Recipes link and do a search for “oats” and see the yummy, nutritious possibilities that await. Oats are uniquely one of the more nutritious foods you can add (or reintroduce) to your diet, while also boasting to be one of the tastiest.
Jules prefers quick gluten free oats because they’re easy to travel with and best for baking. To make oatmeal on the road, just add boiling water! You can even make a healthy, gluten free breakfast in your hotel room with these quick oats. Plus, they are softer and bake up better in cookies and cakes. You’ll see the difference in your baking – try some today!
