Healthy Foods: Oatmeal

Why They're Healthy:

Oats are among the healthiest grains on earth. They’re a gluten-free whole grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants.
Studies show that oats and oatmeal have many health benefits. These include weight loss, lower blood sugar levels and a reduced risk of heart disease. Oats are high in fiber, low in fat, and may even help lower cholesterol. You probably already know about oatmeal, but don't be afraid to mix things up with one of these overnight oats recipes instead.
Daily consumption of a bowl of oatmeal can lower blood cholesterol, because of its beta-glucan content. Oatmeal porridge also contains more B vitamins and calories than other kinds of porridges

Quick Tip:

Stirred up in advance (no cooking necessary!) and left to soak while you catch some extra zzzs, chilled oatmeal is a much quicker way to get in a healthy breakfast. Plus it’s more portable, and the variations are endless.
