Oatmeal: Even Better Than You Thought

(Emily Barney@Flickr)

I like to mix up what I eat in the morning. Usually it’s tea and toast – it’s quick and easy – but in the long run, not very nutritious. So I like to mix in eggs or cereal once in a while and one thing that always makes me feel good after I eat it is oatmeal. You always hear it’s good for you so I looked into whether that’s really true. And it turns out it’s probably one of the healthiest choices you can make. If you’re into eating healthy, you might consider oatmeal to be an essential part of your diet.

When you consider the nutrition facts, some researchers consider oatmeal a magical food. They don’t use that word, but they come up with a number of benefits of eating oatmeal.

Oatmeal can help you lose weight. It’s one of those foods that I can remember my grandmother saying “it sticks to your ribs.” And there’s truth to that. It keeps you fuller longer reducing your craving for junk foods that are not good for you.

Oatmeal is good for your heart and circulation. It’s high in fiber and low in fat. And loaded with B vitamins, calcium, iron and vitamin A helping reduce your risk of heart disease.

As a bonus – oatmeal has no cholesterol. In fact, oatmeal can help regulate cholesterol in your body – getting rid of the bad cholesterol without affecting the good cholesterol. That’s thanks to the fiber in oats. The way it was described to me is oats act like small sponges that soak up the bad cholesterol and remove it from the body.

And for all of those reasons, especially its nutrition, if you have kids – oatmeal should be a regular part of their diet
