Oatmeal is not only great tasting but great for you. Oats contain both soluble and insoluble fiber and protein. They also provide important minerals. Nutrient-rich oatmeal contains thiamin, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, manganese, selenium, and iron. They are also naturally gluten-free. They have also been known to help people control their weight by helping you feel full because they are full of whole grains. My favorite thing about oatmeal is you can make what you want of them. You can pack them with more protein and vitamins by adding ingredients to them and have a variety of flavors, so you don’t get bored. Below are a few great flavor combinations to try. This isn’t your grandma’s oatmeal.
