Three Reasons Oats are Good for You

The oat grain, or groat, may be small, but it is a nutritional powerhouse. Here are three important ways oats are good for you;

  1. Oats contain more protein than most grains, which provides sustained energy.
  2. They are a good source of fiber, including beta-glucan, which is a soluble fiber that can help reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
  3. Oats also contain many powerful antioxidants, including avenanthramides. These compounds may help reduce blood pressure.

And, you can get even more valuable health benefits by topping your Instant Pot quick oats with ingredients like apples, which a good source of dietary fiber, and walnuts that are rich in vitamin E, folate, and omega-3 fats. Add a drizzle of honey for an antioxidant-packed touch of sweetness that makes this recipe a true breakfast of champions.
