I EAT OATMEAL EVERY DAY FOR BREAKFAST

More support for the benefits of eating whole grains.

In the large Nurses’ Health Study of 7822 women with diabetes,

Whole-grain and bran intakes were associated with reduced all-cause and CVD-specific mortality in women with diabetes mellitus. These findings suggest a potential benefit of whole-grain intake in reducing mortality and cardiovascular risk in diabetic patients.

I eat my oatmeal – NOT instant – every morning.  2/3 cups, plus cinnamon, 2 scoops protein powder, skim milk 8 oz, and some dried cherries or other unsweetened fruit.  I mix it the night before, and then nuke it for 3 min in the morning.  Steel-cut oatmeal takes longer.

  1. I don’t have a microwave, and I’m not in a financial position right now to buy one just for oatmeal. Can this be turned into an oatmeal bar recipe that can be baked in the oven then stored at room temperature?
