6 Breakfast Superfoods (Slideshow)

 

5. Coffee.

Don’t feel guilty about that morning cup of joe — coffee is actually one of the best things you can drink for your health! A major study released last year found that regular coffee drinkers were less likely to die than those who skipped the morning caffeine. Other studies have linked coffee to a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes, dementia, and several forms of cancer. Coffee has also been linked to lower rates of depression, stronger cognitive ability, weight loss, and a lower risk of developing Parkinson’s. Wow!

6. Oatmeal.

Loaded with fiber, oatmeal helps lower your cholesterol and your risk of heart disease, and keeps you full for longer than almost any other food out there! They are also a great source of antioxidants, on par with, or even better than, most fruits and vegetables. If you’re going to eat just one thing for breakfast, eat some oatmeal!

My favorite breakfast, when I eat at home is a bowl of Plain Grain Instant Oatmeal with 5 whole grains. It only has 1 gram of sugar and contains: organic whole grain rolled oats, organic barley, organic wheat, organic flaxseed, organic quinoa, organic rye and evaporated sea salt (3% of daily value of Sodium). It has 12% dietary fiber and 6 grams of Protein. It also has 15% phosphorus and 15% magnesium, as well. There 160 calories in each packet. I add fresh apples, bananas, blueberries, nectarines, slivered almonds and almond sugar-free vanilla flavored milk. Top it off with Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Pumpkin Pie Spice. I also have a cup of herbal tea and a glass of O.J. (as I'm a native [and life-long] Floridian and can't kick the O.J. habit). Don't even try to convince me to break that O.J. addiction. Many people have, but I still drink it!

Grains, including oatmeal, should be soaked prior to cooking to rid them of phytic acid. Phytic acid binds valuable minerals and thus does not allow the body to absorb them. This should be doen with all grains and legumes.
