Tag Archives: Steel Cut Oats vs. Rolled Oats

New Beginnings: Day 1

Woke up this morning feeling good about the Plant Based Diet. The coaches and staff at Pro-Activity are awesome! I am feeling motivated.

-Fill yourself with as many fruits and veggies as you can
-Drink more water (glass before you eat)
-Observe media assignments
-Reflect upon goals and motivators
-Get creative; think about ways to incorporate more fruits and veggies into your diet

1/2 cupĀ rolled oats*
Topped w/banana, strawberries, blueberries & cinnamon

*web search conducted to understand the difference between program suggested steel cut oats. Ingredients are simple and listed as organic whole grain rolled oats. Difference, from what I understand, is that although not listed rolled oats are processed slightly – guessing when they are “rolled”. Rolled oats had .5 grams of sugar per serving while steel cut had 0 grams of sugar. Steel Cut Oats are lower on the Glycemic Index.

I am thankful for the coaches and staff at Pro-Activity, the support of my family and friends, the power of choice, and this new day.
