Just One Cup of Oats!


20121231-124118.jpg

What’s a better way to gain the strength and energy to carry you through a hectic morning schedule than with a steaming bowl of freshly cooked oatmeal.

According to a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, confirmed that eating high fiber foods, such as oats, helps prevent heart disease. Just one cup cooked oats have 15.7% magnesium, 18% selenium, 68% manganese, 18% phosphorus, 15.9% fiber and 15.6% of zinc. If you add 1 cup of blackberries like I did here, you’ll be adding 30 mg of Vitamin C. Plus, 7.6 g of fiber, 184 mcg of beta carotene, and 1.68 mg of vitamin E.

These antioxidants protect your cells from free radicals, which are molecules that cause damage to your cells and increase your risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke and possibly Alzheimer’s disease.

Oats also contains vitamin E, calcium, iron, and vitamin K. When I start the day off with a bowl of oats it holds me until lunch time. It’s very filling!
