If you’re pressed for time in the mornings, soak your oats in the water the night before and just heat them through for your breakfast.
The glycemic index is an indicator 1-100 of the level to which your blood glucose rises after consuming a particular food. The higher the number on the GI, the faster glucose from the food gets into the blood stream. For example, pure glucose has a value of 100, white rice averages 89, and brown rice 55, hummus 7. A simple rule of thumb is that whole foods like oatmeal, brown rice, legumes, nuts, fruits and vegetables, are processed far slower by the body than refined foods like white bread, white rice, and white flour products like pasta, cakes and cookies.
