I’m not sure when I started putting down Harry Potter and picking up self-help or nutrition books for recreational reading but I’m thankful I enjoy these things. I recently read, ‘The Beauty Detox Solution’ by Kimberly Snyder. One of the things I took away from the book, besides the ‘Cheat Sheet’ I posted earlier, was that though cooked oatmeal is great for you, they are even BETTER raw. Now, i’m not crazy about the taste yet. But I like to do things just because they are good for me, why else would anyone drink ‘Wheat Grass Shots’ and I know you’re out there. If you’re interested, here’s the recipe. Its definitely filling.
Note: I used steel cut oats because I hadn’t made it to the store to buy the ‘Groats’.
Raw Rolled Oat Cereal
½ cup raw organic oat groats soaked overnight and rinsed well (if you can’t find oat groats, use steel cut oats instead)
½ tsp Stevia
1 to 2 Tbsp cold filtered water, as needed
Pinch of high quality sea salt (optional)
Place the soaked oats and avocado in a food processor and blend. Add the sea salt and Stevia and mix well. If you prefer your oats thick and chunky, you can nix the water altogether. Otherwise, add one tablespoon of water to thin the mixture, and a second tablespoon as needed.
Let me know what you think. I used honey… I wouldn’t recommend that combo with the avocado… maple syrup may work better if you don’t have the Stevia.
