Turns out, there was a reason mom always made us eat oatmeal for breakfast! Like mushrooms, oats are a neutral-colored food with a load of health benefits. Oats are a great source of healthy carbs-and they’re much better for you than cereal or white bread since they pack a fiber boost to slow digestion and keep you fuller for longer. They are also a great source of magnesium, iron and manganese. They even offer a bit of plant protein for a seriously well-rounded food!
Oats are extremely versatile, pairing well with both sweet and savory flavors, making it easy to switch up your breakfast without too much hassle. Our traditional Cinnamon Roll Overnight Oats will please those with a sweet tooth.
Is it just us, or did peas seem to always find their way on the dinner table growing up? Thankfully, we’ve evolved past those mushy peas mom made, and love adding peas to all kinds of dishes. Just one cup of peas is packed with protein, fiber, almost a whole day’s worth of Vitamin C and plenty of other vitamins and minerals.
Peas are popping up in many plant-based products, as their high fiber and protein content make them appealing for functional foods. We prefer to eat them in our cozy, creamy pot pie.
