Fit Tip Tuesday - Eat Oatmeal!

Oatmeal is loaded with soluble fiber that can help lower cholesterol, promote heart health, help keep you full for a long time and kills your cravings.  Oatmeal also digests slowly, which means your body gets a steady stream of energy.

Oatmeal keeps insulin levels low & steady to prevent weight gain.  Eating oatmeal every day for breakfast can also help those struggling with weight loss to lose weight faster and better.  Oatmeal also contains B vitamins, which help transform carbs into usable energy and help keep us happy and stress free.

 Another reason you should eat oatmeal each day is to help keep your immune system healthy and strong so it can fight off illnesses and infections. Oatmeal contains several important nutrients in it such as zinc, selenium, calcium, B vitamins, vitamin E, iron, copper, magnesium, and manganese. Without these nutrients our immune systems would not function properly at all and we would be sick all the time.
Oatmeal contains a wide variety of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and is a good source of protein, complex carbohydrates and iron.

Personally, I never get sick of eating oatmeal - I eat it every day!  There are so many flavor varieties you can make just by adding a few simple ingredients.  It is very quick and easy to make, super healthy and 100% natural!  What's not to love?
