As a nutritionist, I hear a lot of different reasons why people don’t have time to make a healthy meal in the morning.

For those of you who suffer from Celiac or Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity, then you are probably well aware that many of the oats available at grocery stores are processed in facilities that also handle gluten containing grains.
