Oatmeal is a breakfast staple in Loma Linda, California where Seventh-Day Adventist Christians abide by a vegetarian diet. Overnight oats are an easy way to prep breakfast for on-the-go. Fill a couple of mason jars with oats and flavorful toppings, and breakfast is ready to go the next morning.
Oatmeal is a high fiber food. Fiber is very important for your digestive system. Diets high in fiber lower the risk of lifestyle diseases like cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
Oatmeal fills you up. This will help eliminate cravings for snacks, donuts, or other sweets that may tempt you. I remember how people at work would buy a dozen donuts and then share them with other employees. Oats can be included in oat loafs and other vegan or vegetarian recipes to help you improve your health.
Filled with carrots, walnuts, raisins, coconut, and spices, this overnight oats recipe from Sharon Palmer, RDN, the Plant-Powered Dietitian, tastes just like carrot cake! You can pop your jar of Carrot Cake Oats in the microwave for a few minutes if you like it warm.
