By DK on Dec 13, 2007
I am going to start off with a most cliched line.."It seems yesterday " but then here I am with my 50th post! I started into this journey of food blogging, thanks to many wonderful bloggers out there, keeping my fingers crossed, wondering if I would be noticed, apprehensive if I will be given that much needed boost...But I realize now that I need not have been. I have made one hell of a bunch of talented ppl as friends and if at all, I look back and think, is it 3 months already, the credit goes to you all :) More to come from me... Oats are perhaps the most nutritious of all the grains. A quick gist on Oats is as below
- Oat Bran helps to reduce blood cholesterol when taken regularly with dramatic results
- Oats are fiber rich. They contain Vit E and some B Vit, as well as iron, calcium,magnesium,phosphorous and potassium.
Tips and Usage
- Medium Oatmeal is best in cakes and Breads
- Fine oats are good for pancakes, and fruits and milk shakes.
- Oat flour is gluten free and has to be mixed with other flours that contain gluten to make leavened bread.
- Oat Bran can be sprinkled over breakfast cereals and mixed to make smoothies.
