Egg White Vegetable Omelet with Steel-Cut Cinnamon Oatmeal with Dried Fruit and Nuts:
This week’s breakfast spotlight will be on DeliverLean’s Egg White Vegetable Omelet with Steel-Cut Cinnamon Oatmeal wit Dried Fruit and Nuts. For years, oats have been considered a staple in the health food world, but have you ever tried steel-cut oatmeal? When you chose Steel-Cut, you are choosing a relatively unrefined, healthy form of oats.
The biggest advantage Steel-Cut Oats have over traditional oats is their ability to stabilize blood sugar. Traditional oats are relatively easy to digest, which causes our blood sugar to spike quickly. However steel-cut oats are much more complex because they are high in soluble fiber content. As result; they take the body much longer to digest, which in-turn doesn’t create a rise in insulin.
By adding the incredibly powerful antioxidant cinnamon to this recipe, this breakfast becomes an extremely nutritionally stacked meal. Studies have shown that just 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon per day can lower LDL cholesterol. Like steel-cut oats, cinnamon may have a regulatory effect on blood sugar, making it especially beneficial for people with Type 2 diabetes.
Finally, the oatmeal itself is paired alongside 4 ounces of egg-whites this breakfast is jam-packed with 22grams of protein, which will help you feel full well-into your day.
