Breakfast; most important meal of the day!

by priscillamtizwa

I woke up with a craving for a simple Oatmeal cereal with of course lots of fresh fruits 🙂

Added Orange slices and Strawberrie slices, 2% cold Milk and Cinnamon no sugar needed .

Also added some of my dad’s favorite cereal, Pumpkin Flax Granola.

So now I’m sitting here on my bed, with the sun shining through the window, eating a great healthy, nutritious and in my opinion a little taste of heaven, delicious, totally simple breakfast 🙂

And guess what? Oatmeal is also one of the 7 Healthiest Foods We Should Be Eating But Aren’t:

“Oatmeal has 4 grams of fiber per cup and research suggests that increasing your intake of soluble fiber (a type found in oatmeal) by 5 to 10 grams each day could result in a 5 percent drop in “bad” LDL cholesterol. Also, according to a study in the Journal of Nutrition, eating a breakfast made with “slow-release” carbohydrates, such as oatmeal, three hours before you exercise may help you burn more fat. Here’s why: in the study, eating “slow-release” carbohydrates didn’t spike blood sugar as high as eating refined carbohydrates, such as white toast. In turn, insulin levels didn’t spike as high, and because insulin plays a role in signaling your body to store fat, having lower levels may help you burn fat.
