lose_baby_weightThe humble rolled oat is one of those ingredients that should be a healthy pantry staple, especially when trying to lose baby weight and follow a healthy eating plan. Nutritious, low in calories, high in fibre and delicious to boot, it’s one of those things that can be used in a variety of different recipes, to add both nutrients and density.
While you probably automatically think of porridge when you think of oats, we’ve got a number of other recipes that are also ideal for the cooler months. All are simple to make, kid friendly and completely yummy.
Don’t forget, you can also add rolled oats to your daily Healthy Mummy smoothie for an extra dose of fibre and to keep you feeling fuller for longer (check out our banana, oat and honey and banana, oat, maple syrup and blueberry smoothie
