Oats are so much more than the traditional oatmeal you might associate them with; they are many different kinds to incorporate this healthy grain into your diet. There are groats, steel cut, rolled and instant for starters, and they all contain beta-glucans and fiber, known to aid in digestion and help prevent heart disease and diabetes. Want to try a breakfast recipe that isn’t a sugar-laced instant oatmeal packet? Here's an alternate overnight oats recipe is sure to give you a delicious start to your day (and you can change up the fruit for different flavors!)
