Many foods fall in and out of favor as health trends come and go. Not oatmeal. I do have oatmeal each day for breakfast.
Great oatmeal starts with plain rolled oats, or steel-cut oats, cooked in a little water or milk, and topped with wholesome ingredients. It’s a feel-good start to the day, and if you make it a habit, it can do your health some favors.
Eating oats is linked to an average 7% drop in LDL cholesterol, research shows.
Your bowl of oatmeal gets even tastier when you top it with spices. Try cinnamon, ginger, or pumpkin pie spice.
Spoon in some frozen berries, and the warmth of the oatmeal will defrost them for you. Or try applesauce or dried fruit.
You can add milk (dairy, almond, soy, or whatever else you like), too.
