5 Reasons You Should Eat Oatmeal Everyday
This superfood is about as good as it gets. The old porridge recipe your grandmother used to feed you is a lot better than you’d expect, and might make you wonder why you stopped eating it (If you didn’t stop, pat yourself on the back). Don’t get me wrong, it’s not good if it’s soaking in layers of golden syrup and other sugary treats, I’m talking about a more natural, health conscious recipe.
I’ve been using it for years, I find there’s nothing nicer to wake up to than a bowl of oats topped with blueberries and natural yogurt. They keep you satisfied longer; they’re full of fiber, protein, vitamin B1, Magnesium, and manganese; and it tastes absolutely delicious!
Now Huffington Post have provided us with even more valuable reasons to eat it, including how inexpensive it is, it’s ability to ward off cholesterol, and even reduce the risk of cancer:
3. Eating oatmeal may reduce your risk of cancer.
High-fiber, whole-grain foods — including oatmeal — have been shown to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer. A 2011 review in the British Medical Journal showed that the risk of colorectal cancer was 20 percent lower for people who consumed an extra 90 grams of whole grains each day.
Turns out there’s also a wealth of different recipes and meals you can make with oats too, as you’ll see when you read the rest of the article, so you could be eating them for every mean in the day. It’s no wonder they’re being called a superfood.
