Grab a bowl and your favorite toppings to celebrate National Oatmeal Day on October 29th. 

Oats were originally cultivated as far back as 7,000 BCE in Ancient China. From there, they made their way into the Mediterranean with the Ancient Greeks and from there onto the rest of Europe and eventually North America.  

While today oatmeal is praised as an excellent source of fiber and other beneficial nutrients, they weren’t always appreciated by European’s that didn’t yet know what to do with the tough oats. Ancient Romans thought of oats as a diseased form of wheat and only fed it to their horses, looking down on cultures that incorporated oats into their diets, like the Gaulic and Scottish tribes, both of whom withstood the reach of the Roman Empire.

Today, oatmeal has become a household staple with over 80% of Americans keeping oats in their pantries.

So whether you make yours with milk on the stove, pour in boiled water from the kettle, or just toss some instant oats in the microwave, be sure to enjoy a yummy bowl of steel cut or rolled oats for breakfast on October 29th for National Oatmeal Day.
