Oats are among the foods which are allowed on The Kaufmann Two Diet when you switch over from the more restrictive Kaufmann One Diet. Oats have a lot of things going for them which make them a good option to include in your diet on a moderate basis; oats are a nutritional powerhouse packed with essential nutrients, fiber, and antioxidants. 

Heart Health

Oats are renowned for their heart-healthy properties. They are rich in beta-glucans, a soluble fiber that helps reduce cholesterol levels, particularly LDL cholesterol. Oats can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks and strokes. Regular consumption of oats has been associated with improved heart health and a lower incidence of heart disease.

Good Source of Fiber

Oats are a great source of dietary fiber, which plays a crucial role in digestive health. Fiber helps keep you regular and assists in alleviating constipation. Additionally, fiber promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut, contributing to a healthy gut microbiome. This is important, particularly for those on The Kaufmann Diet, because a gut with healthy colonies of beneficial bacteria leave less room for more virulent, competing organisms, like fungi, to take root and flourish. 

Rich Nutritional Profile

Oats are rich in antioxidants, including avenanthramides, which possess anti-inflammatory and anti-itching properties. These antioxidants help reduce inflammation in the body, which is linked to various chronic conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, and even cancer.

Moreover, oats are a good source of vitamins and minerals, including manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, and zinc. These nutrients play vital roles in bone health, energy ,metabolism, and immune function. Incorporating oats into your diet can help ensure you’re meeting your daily requirements for these essential nutrients.

Enjoying Oats on Your Kaufmann Diet

Oats are incredibly versatile and can be enjoyed in various forms, including oatmeal, granola, muesli, and baked goods. Oat flower can be a useful Kaufmann Two Diet substitute for baking. 

It is best to shop for organic, steel cut oats. Organic varieties are non-gmo and should not contain the harmful pesticide, glyphosate. Steel cut are less processed and contain more nutrition than other kinds of oats. Avoid instant oats or flavored oats which may contain sugar and other ingredients not on your diet. 

While oats are permitted on Kaufmann Two, they should be enjoyed in moderation. And if you start experiencing the return of symptoms the diet previously eliminated, it is important to switch back to the more restrictive Kaufmann One Diet.
