When most people think healthy breakfast they think oatmeal, and they're right!
Oats come in several different forms: there's quick oats, rolled oats, steel-cut oats, and even more "specialty" varieties. Each of these labels indicates a different level of processing.
Steel-cut is the Betr recommended version. These oats contain more fiber and protein and are lower on the glycemic index than other oat varieties, so they're better for your blood sugar!
