Oat

The oat is generally cited as the most nourishing of all the cereals, and a good
nerve food. The fine oatmeal gruel of our grandmothers has gone almost entirely
out of fashion, but its use might be revived with advantage. Like wheat, it is a
complete food. 


A good preparation of groats (ground oats from which the husk
has been entirely removed) may be taken by those who find other preparations
indigestible.
Some persons seem unable to take oatmeal, its use being followed by a skin
eruption. This is supposed to be due to a special constituent called "avenin," the
existence of which, however, is denied by some authorities.
There is little doubt but that persons of weak digestive powers and sedentary
habits cannot digest porridge comfortably. In any case quickly-cooked porridge
is an abomination.
