Are you hanging onto summertime for dear life, as I am? I really do love fall, but want summer to last a while longer. It's been so nice. Trust you enjoyed it too and maybe crossed some things on your 'bucket list'.
Plain and simple, I am an oatmeal 'fiend'. I recently discovered I have 60 recipes with oatmeal at my blog, so I decided I needed to share my love for this healthy grain with all of you. I could share lots of facts, but decided I'd rather share more recipes (I may have to devote another column to more oatmeal recipes too). Simply said: Oatmeal is GOOD for you! It contains high levels of fiber that help fight heart disease. It also helps lower cholesterol levels. Oats help enhance your immune system's response to bacterial infection and is also linked to stabilizing blood sugar levels. Research has linked a lower risk of obesity to children who regularly eat oatmeal.
And on and on it goes. What I'm trying to say is - BE FAITHFUL TO EATING OATMEAL! (Keep in mind we're talking 'real' oats here, not the instant kind full of sodium and sugar.) We often enjoy the texture of a 7-grain oatmeal, found at our local bulk food store.
