Our signature spiced oats are a healthy, delicious and easy way to start the day!
Rolled oats are rich in a type of fibre called beta-glucan – this fibre helps you to feel fuller for longer (and less likely to reach for the bickie jar mid morning). Oats are also high in minerals including manganese, selenium, phosphorus, magnesium and zinc.
Our recipe is also rich in warming spices including cinnamon, turmeric and ginger. Turmeric has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties – found curcumin which is the compound that gives turmeric its potent yellow hue. Ginger is fabulous for digestive issues such as nausea, loss of appetite and motion sickness – so is gentle and warming on the stomach for the start of the day. Cinnamon like turmeric has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, it has also been shown to improve insulin sensitivity – insulin is one of the key hormones that regulate metabolism and energy use.
