We went grain free years ago, and felt amazing without them! But, memories of the warm oatmeal and cream of wheat that I ate as a kid crept back in. While we are definitely NOT going to be adding wheat and gluten back into our meals, I did decide to give oatmeal a try again.
But, I did my homework first. I read a lot about the proper preparation of grains and oats in Nourishing Traditions, one of my favorite cookbooks! I made sure the oats were labeled as gluten-free (because cross-contamination can happen!), and I prepared them according to the old methods of soaking and fermenting them.
