Oats

Oats are one of the healthiest whole grains on the planet and are mainly grown in North America and Europe. They are a great source of nutrients, packed full fiber, protein, manganese, phosphorous, iron, and magnesium. Oats also contain large amounts of beta-glucan, a type of soluble fiber which has been shown to decrease cholesterol levels and help promote growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. In addition to being great for your health, oats are very versatile. They are a great base for sweet or savory oatmeal and are a great binder for meatballs, soups, and energy bites.
