Learn how to soak your oatmeal to make them more digestible!



  • 1 cup rolled organic oats (not quick oats)
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 2 tbsp acidic medium (yogurt, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, buttermilk)
  • 1/2 tsp unrefined sea salt


  1. Add 1 cup of oats, water, and the acidic medium into a glass bowl and stir well. Cover and let it sit overnight on the counter (at least 7-8 hours).
  2. In the morning add another 1 cup of filtered water and the unrefined sea salt, stir well. ***Note – if you feel the oatmeal is too sour, you can rinse the oats before adding the additional 1 cup of water, but this is not necessary.
  3. Heat to a low simmer and cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Serve with a generous portion of butter and cream.
