Dietitians Note

* LSA is a combination of ground linseeds, sunflower seed and almonds, available in the health food section of the supermarket. It’s perfect sprinkled on cereal or yoghurt, and can be used in muffin and cake recipes. Store leftover LSA in a sealed container in the freezer.

Oats are a brilliant high fibre grain with a relatively low glycemic index (GI). Of the fibre grains, oats contain beta-glucan that is particularly powerful. Beta-glucan is extremely good at lowering cholesterol levels, which is important for heart and vessel health.
