Is Eating Raw Oatmeal Safe and Digestible?

In this recipe, I include the step of cooking the oatmeal before adding it to the other ingredients. In my experience, I tend to have more gas when I eat raw oats. That’s the short answer to why I prefer cooking them first.

However, rolled oats eaten raw is perfectly fine for most people. You can read more about eating raw oats over at healthline.com.

After creating it many years ago, this smoothie is still one of my favorites. When I was working hard to lose the extra 30 pounds I had gained in my thirties, this shake gave me energy for workouts as much as any other meal. I believe there is truth to the idea that including oatmeal in your diet can help you lose weight. At the very least it has always been a go-to source for me, for healthy energy.

This Berries and Oats Breakfast Shake is an all-time favorite.
