Simply Oatmeal

“Oatmeal’s most enduring claim to fame is its proven ability to curb bad (LDL) cholesterol. Chalk that up to a type of soluble fiber called beta glucan.

Eating oats is linked to an average 7% drop in LDL cholesterol, research shows. Many other things also affect your heart’s health (like what else you eat, how active you are, and whether you smoke), but oatmeal is a simple heart-smart start.

The fiber in oatmeal also helps you feel full and eat less later on during the day. Fiber also eases constipation and helps control blood sugars.” *

I’ve become a serious fan since I found out about the everlasting health benefits of oatmeal. I like it with a teaspoon of minced ginger, some cinnamon, bananas, blueberries and a scoop of coconut cream.
