HEALTHY FOOD CHOICES - OATMEAL

 

MICHELLE COOPER: Next, we are going to talk about oatmeal. Eating a bowl of oatmeal is the perfect way to start the day. There are many benefits to eating oatmeal. Number one, it contains both soluble and insoluble fiber which is recommended for a healthy diet.
 Insoluble fiber helps to keep the body regular by ridding it of its waste, and soluble fiber actually helps to lower your LDL cholesterol or your bad cholesterol and raise your HDL cholesterol. Another reason it is a great way to start off the day is that oatmeal produces a feeling of satiety or fullness that stays with you throughout the day, so you tend to eat less later at lunch or to snack less. Oatmeal can be pretty bland by itself.
 So a way to increase its taste and nutritional value would be to add things like dried fruit, raisins, cranberries, nuts like walnuts, or you can add fresh blueberries, apple slices, cinnamon and natural sweetener. Also, make sure that you prepare your oatmeal with milk, especially skim milk. This will increase the nutritional value and increase the calcium without increasing your calories. So next time you are looking for a healthy way to start your day, reach for oatmeal.
 Remember, it is a great source of soluble and insoluble fiber. It will help keep you full throughout the day. And if you add some dried fruits or fresh fruits and some skim milk, you will increase its nutritional value and its taste without loading up on the extra calories.
