Oats are one of the most versatile whole grains. As the summer season is approaching, here is a simple recipe to quench your thirst.
Cereals, grains, pulses, fruits and vegetables make a nutritious daily diet. There are a number of varieties available in each category. Consuming these helps to maintain a healthy life. When grains are refined, the “bran” and the “germ” are removed, reducing the nutrient content of the grain. That’s why it is better to consume a whole grain which contains all three parts of the grain –Bran, Endosperm and Germ. Choosing a product of 100% whole grain has powerful health benefits with large quantities of vitamins, minerals and fibre as compared to processed products like refined flours and cereals.
Consuming whole grains in a balanced amount is an important part of a healthy diet. Having 3 servings of whole grains daily is required to fulfil the fibre requirement of the body.
Oats are a great type of whole grain. Here are three reasons why you should include oats as part of your daily diet:

Indian students dream of studying abroad, but these deaths and the racism we feel ask the question - are we travelling there to only lose our lives?
Trigger warning: This speaks of racism and death of Indian students, and may be triggering to survivors.
Today morning while I was on my way to the office, I was scrolling Instagram and immediately my eyes got stuck on a post having the headline, “US Policeman ran over an Indian Student in Seattle”. Jaahnavi Kandula, a 23-year-old Northeast University Graduate student from Andhra Pradesh was struck and killed in January this year by a Seattle cop, Kevin Dave, while driving 74 mph on the way to a report of an overdose call.”
