Make Mine Oatmeal
starting your morning with a low glycemic oatmeal will rock your day

It is no secret that boosting metabolism is a good thing. Metaphorically, it is similar to saving money, quitting smoking, working out, etc. The only difference is... it is much easier! There are certain foods that are capable of pumping up your metabolism, and all you really have to do is substitute them for some of the less healthy foods that you consume.

Oatmeal is famous for breaking down very slowly in the stomach, which is good, because this causes less of a spike in insulin. Production of insulin triggers storage of fat, which in order to take place, sends signals to the body to slow down your metabolism. As we can see, the rate of your metabolism is directly related to the production of insulin, and as a rule, products with a low glycemic index result in lower insulin levels.

If your still not convinced here are a few more reason to include oatmeal in your morning routine.

1. Over 40 studies show that eating oatmeal may help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease.

2. The soluble fiber in oatmeal absorbs a considerable amount of water which significantly slows down your digestive process. This results is that you'll feel full longer, i.e. oatmeal can help you control your weight.

3. You probably already have oats in your kitchen. It's estimated that eighty percent of U.S. households currently have oats in their cupboards.

4. New research suggests that eating oatmeal may reduce the risk for type 2 diabetes. In fact, the American Diabetes Association already recommends that people with diabetes eat grains like oats. The soluble fiber these foods help to control blood glucose levels.

5. Most oats found in your grocery store are 100% natural. If you look at the ingredients on a canister of rolled oats, you will usually see only one ingredient.. rolled oats.

6. According to recent studies, a diet that includes oatmeal may help reduce high blood pressure. The reduction is linked to the increase in soluble fiber provided by oatmeal. Oats contain more soluble fiber than whole wheat, rice or corn.

7. Oatmeal contains a wide array of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and is a good source of protein, complex carbohydrates and iron.

8. The fiber and other nutrients found in oatmeal may actually reduce the risk for certain cancers.

9. Oatmeal is quick and convenient. Quick oats can usually be made in less than 10 minutes. And what about instant oatmeal… a hot breakfast in under a minute.. incredible!

10. Oatmeal can be absolutely delicious! Whether instant, cooked on the stove or baked in the oven, the combination of flavors you can fit into a serving of oatmeal is limited only by the imagination.

Have an excellent day.
