We are always on a quest to maintain lean and healthy silhouettes, flawless complexions, and luscious locks. But instead of being creative and making our own food, we tend to prefer buying our healthy meals or having someone make them for us.
However, this defeats the purpose of healthy living because we miss out on knowing the proper nutrition our body needs. We also miss out on the best and most overlooked foods that can be found in nature such as orange root vegetables, pumpkin seed, and goji seeds, for instance. These vitamin-rich foods are full of collagen, keratin, and elastin.
While these superfoods have their independent benefits, there are three that have a wide range of nutritional value--oats, milk, and oat milk. Yes, they're some of the most humble products out there, but they pack a punch in vitamins and nutrients. Here's why!
One wonderful fact about oats is that it is the ideal weight-loss companion as it contains soluble fibre that creates gels in your stomach, preventing you from feeling hungry and reducing the temptation of binge eating. Eating oats encourages our bodies to digest food at a slower pace that keeps blood sugar levels steady and boosts our energy!
Aside from its healthy benefits, oats is also great for the skin when applied topically. When lathered on as a mask or body scrub, it moisturizes and lightens the skin as well as gently smoothening the skin's surface.
