For me it’s soak if I remember, don’t fret if I don’t. You can also soak for less time and it will help a lot. And soaking in water is better than nothing. You don’t need the buckwheat/kasha added in if you are allergic, it just helps. If you eat oat bran for breakfast every day, just put it in water, stevia, cinnamon (With the extra helpful stuff if you have it quickly on hand) before bed and then you’ll actually have it to go in the morning.
Here’s an article about which things might be more meaningful to soak and which things aren’t as dire: http://nutritiondiva.quickanddirtytips.com/phytic-acid-in-grains.aspx
From what I have read elsewhere though, oats are especially important to soak, and even more so if you eat them regularly.
We are overworked now and that is why we don’t have time for our health. People in the past did spend a lot of the day in the kitchen and the garden preparing food. There are ways to be healthy and somewhat fast now, but you have to be creative. I’ve also really grown to love my kitchen time lately. Just do you best and enjoy what you do for your health.
