Oatmeal For Your Health

25 Mar

If you cook rolled oats in boiling water, with a bit of raw butter perhaps, it’s very good for you. Even those who have a low carb tolerance, like Jon, can consume oats when soaked overnight prior to boiling the next day. This deactivates the enzyme inhibitors that cause digestion problems.

Back to heart health for a moment: one study focused on millers, individuals who mill oats, and found that those who ate the most of their own product had the least amount of heart disease. Even for those who did not consume as much as the other millers, all of them had less heart disease than the general population.

This is a staggering find, and one you should consider when thinking to yourself, “What should I have for breakfast today?” Just think what adding blueberries and walnuts would do for you! And, for those of us into bodybuilding and protein, including a scoop of high-quality whey (or soy if you’re a vegan or vegetarian) protein creates the ideal “quick and healthy” meal.

Oatmeal is also reasonably high in protein and all the B vitamins. And, if you eat oatmeal with a bit of milk (or the protein mentioned earlier), you’ll get enough protein to substitute for a meal consisting of ham and eggs.

    When you follow a “clean eating” diet oatmeal is the perfect suggestion.
