Oats-Roundup

Oats – the wonder grain. Nutritionists keep adding to its good reputation.

I admit, I was a bit anxious and nervous when I announced WBB#13 Oats-I was nervous about the response I would get since this was my first event as a host and also because I wasn’t sure of the popularity of Oats.                

The response I have received is very encouraging (for me as well as for Oats J)and we now have some very innovative and wonderful recipes to give a healthy start to our day!

Thank you Nandita for giving me this wonderful opportunity to host WBB
