Quick Cook Or Steel Cut Oats
Store I Purchase At: Aldi

Where In The Store: Cereal Aisle
1. Always having oats on hand is a great idea! If you're ever in need of a flour alternative, simply just take some oats, throw it in a food processor until the consistency is of flour! You'll have yourself oat flour in no time!
2. Oats are one of those great foods because they're complex--essentially what that means is that it takes your body longer to break it down (metabolize it) therefore that's why you'll hear people say oats keep you fuller for longer! Simple carbs like fruit sugars are broken down very quickly by your body and therefore you may find yourself hungry within an hour of eating a bowl of fruit
