“You have to eat oatmeal or you’ll dry up. Anyone knows that.” –Kay Thompson
Your grandma and the Scots ate oats because they are inexpensive and grow anywhere. I eat it for its taste and nutrition and many other benefits. It’s on my list of Powerfoods that I eat regularly.
It’s really true what the cereal TV commercials say about those “crunchy oat clusters.” They are good for you, particularly if you make your own.
10 Reasons Why I Love Oatmeal
1. Low calorie food; stops cravings.
A cup is only 130 calories! It also stays in your stomach longer, making you feel full longer. You will have less hunger and cravings.
2. Provides high levels of fiber, low levels of fat, and high levels of protein.
It’s on the short list for the highest protein levels of any grain.
