Food of Steel!!!

Happy Monday!

I recently educated myself on steel-cut oats. I was shopping at Target the other weekend and came across Quaker’s Steel-Cut Oats. I was intrigued, as I’ve never seen steel-cut oats before. I always see the old-fashioned oats or instant oats. I seriously thought all oats were the same. What was I thinking?!?!

I’m all for eating healthy. Right then and there at Target, I researched what steel-cut oats were. I recently read an article and was informed that they were healthy. I found a wonderful article that compares the three different oats (steel-cut, rolled, and instant): http://www.thekitchn.com/whats-the-difference-between-steel-cut-rolled-and-instant-oats-138355

Basically, it’s all about how the oat groat is processed.

Dr. Andrew Weil, explains in this article why he recommends eating steel-cut oats. He says it slows down the sugar conversion process. Another learning moment!

This past weekend, I made myself a bowl and I liked it very much. The texture was definitely different than the traditional oats (aka rolled). It felt more chewy and grainy. Nonetheless, I enjoyed it! …And if it’s healthier, then I’m all for it!

I get so excited when I do my research on foods. Life is all about continuous learning. It’s a lot of work, but it’s so important to take care of our one-and-only body.

Eat green on Earth Day!

Throwback Thursday- UFoodGrill?

Happy #tbt!!

Back in 2014, my auntie and I traveled with our travel crew to South America to embark on a cruise that started in Santiago (Valparaiso), Chile. We had a couple of layovers across the Continental US before arriving to our final destination- Chile. Our first stop after departing Honolulu was Salt Lake City, Utah. We had some time to chill at the airport before departing to Atlanta, Georgia. We arrived in Salt Lake in the early morning, so not a lot of places were open to grab a bite. However, UFood Grill was and the food looked awesome!
