Health magazine recently named oats one of the healthiest super foods for women. This should come as no surprise since we’ve known for a long time that oats can help lower cholesterol. Now scientists say oats, rich in soluble and insoluble fiber, are also good for helping you feel full so you can control your weight. This may explain why January is National Oatmeal Month.
Whether eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner or as a snack, oatmeal provides a warming, nutritious meal for everyone…male or female, children and adults alike. Everyday, millions of Americans start their day with some variety of oats: creamy instant oatmeal, traditional old fashioned oats, nutty steel cut oats. There are even “on the run” options for those who prefer their oats to go.
