27 Oct Heart Healthy Oatmeal
You wake up, the floor is a bit chilly underfoot as you head for your morning coffee. You’re tired of eggs, you don’t want cereal, and bread and jam just isn’t doing it for you anymore. This is an oatmeal day!
Quick and easy to prepare, and with a lean protein bar added, you’ll enjoy a warm, filling, semi-sweet, power breakfast that will keep your motor running all morning.
Not only this, but eating oatmeal regularly is associated with lower bad cholesterol (average 7% drop in LDL cholesterol, actually), lower blood sugar, a reduced chance of colon cancer, and promotes healthy gut bacteria. It’s not just comfort food…it’s a superfood.
