Oats are gluten-free whole grains, commonly eaten for breakfast as oatmeal. They are even referred to as porridge. Not to forget, oats are one of the healthiest breakfast picks. People eat their oats as a whole (oat groats), rolled, or even crushed. But things are different with Neetu Kapoor. She prefers it steel cut. Steel-cut oats are oat groats that have been sliced into smaller pieces. Neetu Kapoor has shared a glimpse of her meal on Instagram Stories. And, we are taking notes! The snippet featured a plate with a portion of cooked oats and a side of chopped date and prune. “Steel cut oats with almond milk, 1 date, and 1 prune to sweeten,” she wrote in the caption of her post, along with a biceps emoji.
