    A Food For January Is Oatmeal

    Oatmeal is a cereal made of ground oat groats, steel-cut oats, crushed oats or rolled oats. It is an excellent breakfast because it has calcium, minerals, vitamins, fiber and proteins.
    It is also used as a part of home remedies for different conditions.

    Oatmeal has no cholesterol or sodium. It has 8% total fat, 20% cholesterol. 33% dietary fiber, 4% calcium, 19& iron, 2% Vitamins E & K, 4% B6, 25% thiamin, &% riboflavin, 5% niacin,and
    6% folate.

    Those who eat oatmeal reduce their risk of breast cancer because
    of the large amount of insoluble fiber.It also has soluble fiber which helps reduce levels of LDL cholesterol, the “bad” cholesterol, while not doing anything to HDL, the “good” cholesterol. This happens because soluble fiber breaks down in the digestive track. It forms a gel which traps substances associated with high levels of cholesterol.

    Eating oatmeal daily reduces high blood pressure and has been shown to decrease the need for anti-hypertensive medicine.

    Oatmeal is wonderful for those who are diabetics. The soluble fiber in oatmeal slows down the digestive process which slows down the rate cholesterol goes into the blood stream.

    It has enough calcium. iron, magnesium, phosphorus, protein, thiamine that it aids in protecting bones, teeth and muscles.

    Finally those who eat oatmeal on a daily basis have been shown to have fewer heart diseases.

    Not everyone wants to eat oatmeal for breakfast every day. That’s why it’s a good idea to include oatmeal. in some form daily.

    I eat oatmeal almost every work morning. I had to say work because the past 2 weeks I am not at work and I am not eating oatmeal.

    I microwave mine, usually 1/2 cup water, 1/4 cup oatmeal, some dried fruit, all which I have dried myself (well I do use store bought craisins), a dash of salt, for 2 minutes. Then I had a spoonful of brown sugar and a heaping tablespoonful of peanut butter. That usually keeps me going until lunch time. I went back to eating the quick oats because I found the large flake oats boiled over all the time. I use the microwave so I don't have to babysit my oatmeal. icon_lol.gif

    Oatmeal is not healthy for everyone. Those with gluten sensitivities may react to it even though it contains no gluten. It also may likely be contaminated with gluten as many factories use the same facility for gluten products. I stopped eating old fashioned oats and quick cooking oats a while back as I felt I was reacting to them. Recently I bought a Bob's Red Mill whole oat groats to try again as something healthy I had read before seeing this topic. I also let my new 1 year old try for the first time. She threw up, and I have dicided mainly not to eat it since she is still breastfeeding.

    I love oatmeal. I like the steel cut oats for porridge, I feel that the coarser cut provides more nutrition and fiber, and I think it just tastes better. I use my rice cooker to make it, so much easier than standing over the stove. Creamy Breakfast Oatmeal (Rice Cooker)
    I love it in breads and pancakes, too - I don't make cookies very often any more, but other things are fair game!

    I also like to use multigrain mixes - these will have rye, wheat, barley flakes along with the oatmeal, and I think they add a lot of flavor.

    Yes, and the recipe I posted use maple syrup to cook the oatmeal. But I also like a pat of butter or a spoon of good jam.

    I don't like regular tasting oatmeal. Tom puts maple syrup in his oatmeal. We buy flavored oatmeal for me.
