Many people don’t know how healthy cereals can be, especially oatmeal with no added sugar. They’re rich in fiber and protein when compared to other grains. They have some unique components — especially the soluble fiber beta-glucan and antioxidants called avenanthramides.

Some of the health benefits of oats include lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Oats reduce constipation and protect against skin irritations. The benefits of consuming oatmeal include lower risk of colorectal cancer, as well as heart disease.

Oatmeal is rich in soluble fiber, which reduces our low-density lipoprotein (LDL), better known as the “bad” cholesterol. Having cooked oatmeal in the morning provides six grams of fiber. Oats contain six percent of recommended daily value of iron, and two percent of calcium. They are quite low in calories and contain only 1.5g of fat. There is no harm in consuming oats every day, just make sure you’re eating a variety of other grains, fruits, and vegetables.

    I like how the British say “porridge”, it sound so fancy haha. It’s amazingly healthy and people still buy granola, muesli with tons of sugar, fruit loops, etc. It’s almost like we don’t want to be healthy. I wonder whether people know these things, do they ever read texts like these.

    Oatmeal, one of the most common whole grains offers potential benefits for heart health, blood sugar management, arthritis prevention and weight control. It is incredibly nutritious and is rich in antioxidants. An easy way to incorporate more whole grains into your regimen is to start your day with a hearty bowl of oatmeal, which is rich in fiber and protein while low in calories.

    Yes, it’s a good time to point out that if you’re not eating oatmeal, here’s why you oat-to: Oats contain both soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fibers form a viscous gel that helps to lower cholesterol and stabilize blood glucose levels. Thank you so much and keep posting things like this.

    Oatmeal is made of hulled oat grains – groats – that have either been milled, steel-cut, or rolled. Ground oats are also called “white oats”. Steel-cut oats are known as “coarse oatmeal” or “Irish oatmeal” or “pinhead oats”. Rolled oats can be either thick or thin, and may be “old-fashioned”, or “quick”, or “instant”.

    I don’t care so much about benefits of oatmeal, I don’t like oatmeal and can’t stand eating it, it’s has no taste and it’s just weird.
