But oats are not the only food that can be consumed without cooking and just by soaking. Ancient Indian grains like jowar and rajgira are other great options to make quick overnight breakfast bowls. These grains are gluten-free, which means they are ideal for a diabetes diet, and brim with various other health-benefiting properties.
