Oatcake
lunch time

 

Swap the sandwich and all that wheat for a salad or bowl of soup accompanied by some oatcakes. Eating oats for lunch is a great way to fill yourself up without resorting to sugary white bread, and they’re more versatile for lunching on the go.

 

We all eat too much wheat in the Western diet, so it's important to vary your intake of grains. Get your nutrients and protein from the salad or soup, and add oatcakes for some complex carbs to provide the energy you need to get through the afternoon. Oats are a slow release energy food, so eating oatcakes and other oaty foods can help stave off the post-lunch slump at work or school.

 

Spice up your lunchtime routine with one of our recipes, like this chicken and mango salsa, which tastes great on a rough oatcake.
