Coffee Drinkers See Perks Of Grain-Based Beverages

Here’s a beverage that really goes against the grain. Bottled oats and seedy lattes are sprouting all over — some blended into sweet coffees, others throwbacks to instant breakfast drinks — and New Yorkers are starting to slurp them up. It may sound hard to swallow, but drinks like this are delicious and nutritious, packed with omega-3s, fatty acids, protein and fiber. There’s also a quinoa smoothie, a Tahitian vanilla oat shake and even a juice made from chia seeds on the market. (NYDaily News)
