Power Up Your Day With Breakfast!

Breakfast is a very important meal. It sets the tone for the rest of the day by affecting energy levels, mood, sleep, ability to focus and complete tasks, and dietary patterns. An example of a nutrition packed breakfast staple is oatmeal. This fiber-packed whole grain food can be spiced up and flavored in many different ways. Oatmeal is also economical, relatively easy to prepare, and very shelf stable. There are many different varieties of oatmeal: steel cut, old fashioned, quick cook, and flavored instant oats. Steel cut oats are the least processed form of oats, next is old fashioned, then quick cook, and flavored instant oats are the most processed. The most processed version of oatmeal contains more nutrients because the oat grain is intact. All oats contains fiber, but the least processed versions contain the most soluble fiber. Consuming foods high in soluble fiber help prevent heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels. Soluble fiber also stabilizes blood sugar by slowing down the body’s absorption of sugar from food. Try this fiber packed autumn recipe below for your next breakfast!
