Are Steel Cut Oats Better for You?

Because steel-cut oats are minimally processed, and because they contain more fiber and density than their counterparts, steel cut rolled oats are one of the healthiest grains you can eat.

Wow, I have been wasting so much time cooking our steel cut oats in the morning. Yes, I realize there are now quick cooking steel cut oats, but for a long time all I could find were the regular so I was cooking them in the morning and it was taking forever! The other day I had a bunch of peaches to use up and decided to try my hand at peaches and cream slow cooker overnight steel cut oats. They turned out wonderful and we will for sure be enjoying them all year long, especially since school starts so early and Cade and I want to keep up our tradition of having breakfast time as a family each morning. We gather as a family, read our scriptures and eat a yummy breakfast before everyone heads out in different directions. Such a simple thing to do and only takes a little waking up a few minutes earlier to start our day off on the right foot.

Are Peaches Healthy for You?

Peaches contain vitamin A which promotes eye health.

Peaches are a source for dietary fiber.

Fiber contributes to digestive health, can help lower cholesterol levels (which is good news for the heart as well), and helps to keep you feeling fuller, longer after eating.
