Why is eating oatmeal a great way to start your day? Oats are a source of both soluble and insoluble fiber, which not only helps keep you feeling fuller for longer, but they are both critical to your overall health. Its richness in soluble fiber helps to slow digestion, increase satiety and suppress appetite.
Oatmeal is also a good source of many vitamins and minerals including manganese, phosphorous, copper, B-vitamins, iron, selenium, magnesium and zinc. Oats even contain more protein and healthy, unsaturated fats than most other grains. Click here to learn more about the nutritional benefits of oatmeal and what kinds are healthiest >
