It seems like we can never have enough energy. Not fossil fuel or wind power, but rather good, old-fashioned get-up-and-go! And while everyone speculates why we don’t have enough energy, it’s harder to pin down what to do about it.
One thing you can do is listen to your mom and eat your oatmeal.
One of the best quick breakfasts you can prepare is a bowl of oatmeal, especially if you are active and health conscious. Oatmeal is rich in complex, energy-sustaining carbohydrates, low in fat and high in fiber. What’s more it is economically priced and easy to make?
Oatmeal is nature’s perfect food: it lowers cholesterol, makes digestion easier and also stabilizes blood glucose level because of its complex carbohydrates and fiber content. The soluble fiber in oatmeal helps you to get a steady stream of energy and contains B vitamins, which helps transform carbohydrates into usable energy. In addition, it absorbs a considerable amount of water which slows down your digestive process, so you feel full longer!
So, it turns out mom was right and breakfast is the most important meal of the day. What better gift on Mother’s Day than to call and let her know you still listen to her advice.
