Oatmeal is a great Low Gylcemic Index(LGI) food. I tried a Steel Cut oatmeal and found that they were very good. The one thing about LGI food is they are slow digestive foods. That will help the Glucose level to remain level. Creating no sugar spikes, which tends to led to cravings.
Foods great for this is bananas, Agave Syrups and Oatmeal. Walnuts have great omega 3 oils, which are also a good source of stable oil for your body. Combining these will help in the weight control life. A hardy breakfast is a great start to your day. Eating a LGI one will give you more energy and wake the body up from the night time fast in a better way.
Here is my Steel oatmeal recipe.
1 1/2 cups of cold water
1 Tablespoon Maple Agave syrup
1/4 cup of Steel-Cut oatmeal
2 Tablespoons ( 1/8 cup) of chopped Walnuts
1 small banana, chopped
In a small sauce pan bring water and Agave syrup to boil.
Stir in Steel-Cut oats and reduce to Low heat, Simmer for 25 minutes.
Remove from heat add walnut and Banana.
Serves 1 or 2 if you wish.
