'Only' Series Event Announcement For February & Giveaway

Hi all!

We are finishing this month with 'Only'-Sprouts and have started off the new year on a healthy note. The month of February brings in another health conscious theme at  'Only' series.

We all know that heart is an extremely important organ in our body and a healthy heart indicates a healthy body. An important cereal grain which has now become a common household name especially because of its healthful properties is surely Oats.

Oats is believed to have cholesterol reducing properties and is commonly used and eaten as Oats meal, Oats flour or as rolled Oats. Oat bran is the outer casing of the oat. Its consumption is believed to lower LDL ("bad") cholesterol, and possibly to reduce the risk of Heart disease.Oats are the only cereal containing a Globulin or legume-like protein, Avenalin, as the major (80%) storage protein.

With such huge health benefit that this grain shows, I thought of having an entire event on this marvelous cereal grain. So, the event for February is 'Only' Oats. One can cook any course of the meal and send it to the event.

This event will run through February and anyone can be a part of this event. There will be two giveaway books, 'Healthy Starters' and 'Top10 Healthy Foods' sponsored by  which will be shipped only in India to the winning blogger as long as he/she has been following my blog, which I feel would be an ethical criteria to pick up a winner as I surely feel people who are interested in my blog should get the win. I would appreciate that you follow my blog publicly as this helps me know you and your blog better.
