Oatmeal, cinnamon, apple sauce and fruit. Here is why this delicious dish has been favored for generations... not only delicious but packed with healthful benefits.
- Oatmeal = Research shows, eating oats is linked to an average 7% drop in bad (LDL) cholesterol. The fiber in oatmeal also helps you feel full and eat less later on during the day. It helps ease constipation and helps control blood sugar. TIP: Some packets of instant oatmeal are loaded with sugar, as much as 8 teaspoons per serving! Opt for the plain rolled oats or steel-cut oats. (WebMD)
