National Oatmeal Day
On October 29th, we hope you’ll join us in celebrating National Oatmeal Day! Oatmeal is a healthy grain with lots of soluble fiber, making it a great choice for breakfast or even a snack! There are many other ways to enjoy oats, including muesli, oatmeal muffins, overnight oatmeal, and oatmeal cookies.
Gluten-free? No problem—just look for oats that are marked as gluten-free, to ensure they are handled properly when processed and tested.
