The new year is your chance to get things right, including in the food choices you make. However, be ready to face challenges along the way — such as running out of nutritious breakfast ideas.
To avoid getting stuck with a repetitive menu, learn how to make the most out of certain ingredients. For instance, you can make savory meals and replace rice with oats. If you don’t believe it, check out three hearty and savory breakfast recipes you can make using Quaker Oats Rolled Oats below.
Here’s why you’ll want to eat oats regularly. First, oats contain protein, an important nutrient your body needs. Next, they have fiber (oats have seven times more fiber per 100g than long-grain white rice), which helps with digestion, with proper diet and exercise. And finally, oats have beta-glucan that may help lower cholesterol, when partnered with a balanced diet and an active lifestyle.
Now on to the recipes!
