I have decided to start a series on single ingredients from nature that are both nourishing and delicious. Oats are my first subject. Oats are such an amazing food. They’re rich in fiber and beta-glucan and help to cleanse and support our digestive system, while naturally supporting healthy cholesterol levels.

Today on my walk I noticed the grasses have matured into an amazing array of color.  Some are showing off a deep maroon blaze across their tips, others are glowing bright yellow.  There are patches of every shade of green and now golds and browns too.  All the while my eyes are admiring this scene, my nose says “Accchoooo!”
