Oatmeal, heart health

Oatmeal is one of those foods that have so many amazing health benefits, it would be silly not to incorporate them into your everyday diet!

There’s evidence to prove that whole grain oats and oat bran can help lower blood cholesterol, reducing your risk of cardiovascular disease. The soluble fiber in oats helps to bind the cholesterol in your system and stop it from reaching your blood vessels. This lowers the risk of suffering from a stroke or a heart attack.

A serving of oats in the morning is proven to make us feel full and satisfied for hours, which is great news if you’re trying to lose weight. Some might skip breakfast in an attempt to lose weight, but eating a filling breakfast will stop you from making unhealthy choices throughout the day. Oatmeal can be made into a traditional breakfast porridge, blended into a breakfast smoothie, or even included as an ingredient in cookies or pancakes.
