Some people look at a bowl of oatmeal and go "blah", but those humble unassuming little flakes have some big benefits!
One cup of oats provides 6 g of protein and 4 g of fibre. Eat just one cup of oats and you can rack up nearly 70% of your daily needs for manganese, a mineral that helps enzymes in bone formation. (You'll also get good helpings of vitamin B1 and magnesium.)
They fill you up. They help reduce cholesterol. They are diabetes friendly. They support healthy digestion. They are great for cooking. They are quick and easy to prepare.
I love my oats with a little bit of maple syrup, cocount flakes and plump juicy raisins... ummmm oats
