Oats are among the healthiest grains on earth. They're a gluten-free grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants.

According to a Shared report, if you think of oatmeal as gloppy breakfast cereal that your grandparents used to eat, you have yet to experience the real benefits of regularly eating oats. Try them for a month and you’ll see the result.

Oatmeal can be made sweet or savory, and there are dozens of health benefits that come from incorporating oatmeal into your diet. This quick and healthy breakfast food staple is a whole grain powerhouse that packs plenty of nutritional value for our health.

Whether it's plain rolled oats or steel-cut oats, adding oatmeal to your diet will make you feel and look good. It’s time to soak your oats and reap the benefits of this health trend that is here to stay.

Oats make an easy, balanced breakfast. One cup of cooked oatmeal contains about 150 calories, four grams of fiber (about half soluble and half insoluble), and six grams of protein. A warm bowl of oatmeal is a delicious and deeply comforting way to start the day.

Oats contain both soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fibers form a viscous gel that helps to lower cholesterol and stabilize blood glucose levels.

The insoluble fiber in oats helps provide a "moving" experience by curtailing constipation and improving intestinal health. What a delicious way to make your heart and colon smile.

Oats provide important minerals. Nutrient-rich oatmeal contains thiamin, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, manganese, selenium, and iron.

Oats are naturally gluten-free but check with manufacturers to ensure that their products are not made using the same equipment as other potentially contaminating grains.

Oats could help you control your weight by keeping you feeling fuller longer. Sadly, carbs are often shunned and feared by those looking to drop a few pounds, yet choosing whole grains could squash hunger and simultaneously provide that pleasant feeling carb-lovers crave. But, as with any other food, be mindful of portion sizes.
