A couple of weeks ago I asked on my Facebook page if there was anything in particular you’d like me to write about, and a guy named Malcolm asked me what my opinion was on oats.
I thought I would answer via a vlog, and I would like to do this regularly so if there’s a question you’d like me to answer, please leave a comment below this vid or on my Facebook page!
My Opinion On Oats
I used to love eating a good old fashioned bowl of oats for brekky! There’s something very comforting about warm porridge in winter with cinnamon, blueberries and honey…reminds me of being a kid!
When I started learning more about nutrition, I opened my awareness more to how my body responded to eating grains such as oats….and it wasn’t that great.
These are my issues with oats:
- Oats contain phytic acid which is an anti-nutrient that blocks the absorption of minerals
- Oats contain a small amount of gluten which is a poison that breaks down the lining of your gut wall
- Oats are high in carbs which raises your blood sugar levels sky high
