When it’s too hot for cooked oats or you’re ready to change up the breakfast routine, this recipe’s fresh citrus flavor will brighten your morning. The oats contain iron, which is essential for energy production, but often cannot be easily absorbed from plant-based foods. The vitamin C in Florida Orange Juice (FLOJ) can help by increasing the absorption of iron into your body.
