as you all know is a wonder food that soaks up all the cholesterol like a sponge from our body. This Oats Buttermilk or Oats savory porridge with buttermilk is very light on the stomach and adds more fibre to our daily diet and is also low in calories. In case if you are suffering from diabetes then instead of drinking hot beverages without sugar during the break time, you can have this buttermilk without any guilt. I pack a bottle of this buttermilk to Hubby daily to drink during the break time as he wanted to reduce his daily intake of coffee and tea and also the sugar.
You can also make this as a thick porridge and have it for breakfast and if taking this in a bottle as a drink then shake the bottle well before you drink. This is a lot fat, low calorie drink, perfect to be had during summer season as buttermilk happens to be a natural body cooler. A drink to be had at regular intervals especially when you are fasting or on a diet.
