Oatmeal: Reasons Why You Should Have This Superfood

Oatmeal is made of oat which is a cereal and is one of the healthiest grains ever cultivated. Also known as common oat, it is mostly known for its seed. It is the most common go-to breakfast food for most health-conscious people.

It is a gluten-free whole grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. Dry, baked, rolled and cooked oats are all great for health. It primarily helps with weight loss, lowering blood sugar levels, reducing heart disease and keeps your appetite in check. It is also rich in carbs and fiber.

Oatmeal as such may seem rather uninteresting to many. But there are numerous ways you can have it. You could add honey and banana to it and make it quite tasty! A fruit bowl with all your favourite fruits and berries along with the oatmeal should do the job of helping you make the healthiest, tastiest breakfast. And if you add a tablespoon of basil/chia seeds to the bowl.. voila! 

Compared to most other grains that provide carbs and fiber, oats stand out best among them. Some people may experience bloating at first but it can be managed if you can increase portion size by the day, starting with a small portion on the first day.

This superfood can be used to make porridge, the healthiest of cookies, smoothies, pancakes, cakes, protein bars, and the choices are endless.
