The American Heart Association lists oatmeal as a heart-healthy food because it lowers blood cholesterol. Oatmeal is rich in fiber, protein, vitamins (B’s) and minerals (Copper, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Phosphorus, Zinc to name a few). The fiber in oatmeal is particularly effective in steadying blood sugar and slowing the absorption of carbs.
Call to Action:
What better way to start the day? Use only real flaked oats, not the instant or quick kind, which are not as nutritious.
I eat a big bowl of oatmeal most mornings. It’s so quick and easy to fix, in fact it can sit with the lid on after you bring it to a boil and it will be ready once you’re finished dressing. On days I need to leave home in the morning, I put my oatmeal in a paper bowl and finish it within 15 minutes.
