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.
