5 Benefits of an oats breakfast

Oats is a healthy inexpensive meal to eat. One can serve it with fruits, honey or syrup to give it that extra pop.

Here are 5 benefits of having outs for breakfast, apart from the fact of saving money.....

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 and protein.

For healthy bones and skin. Not forgetting a healthy nervous system.

3. Removes your bad cholesterol (without affecting your good cholesterol).

Many studies have shown that the unique fiber in oatmeal called beta-glu, has beneficial effects on cholesterol levels. Bad cholesterol can cause a heart attack.

4. Enhances immune response to disease.

5. It tastes good.

The good thing with oats is that you can pimp it up with fresh fruits like strawberries and berries to add that special twist. Or just simple add honey.

Enjoy :)
