Take Advantage of the Health Benefits of Oatmeal
January is national oatmeal month. Celebrate the month by learning some of the health benefits of regularly eating oatmeal as well as suggestions for cooking with oatmeal.
Whole grains, including oatmeal, contain essential nutrients our bodies need to function properly. These nutrients include folate, iron, magnesium, selenium, thiamin and riboflavin. Antioxidants in whole grains can also help to reduce inflammation. While the amount of antioxidants is small, by continuing to eat oatmeal over time you will reap the health benefits of these antioxidants. Additionally, the American Cancer Society has stated that oats contain cancer-fighting phytochemicals in their outer layer which help prevent and fight heart disease and cancer.
Whole grains are also an excellent source of fiber, which helps stabilize blood sugar and lower cholesterol. Stable blood sugar levels are highly important for people with diabetes, but they also help non-diabetics to feel full longer by preventing spikes in blood sugar. Research has also shown that fiber helps to lower cholesterol, particularly LDL. Additionally, emerging research shows that oats may help block smaller LDL cholesterol particles, which have the potential to be more dangerous than larger particles.
Finally, the fiber and nutrients in whole grains have been shown to not only prevent high blood pressure but also aid in lowering blood pressure. One study showed a 4% drop in blood pressure over ten years when eating only one serving of whole grains per day. By eating more servings you would reap even more blood pressure benefits.
Cooking with Oatmeal
Oatmeal is not only a tasty option for breakfast, adding it to your favorite foods throughout the day can help up your daily intake of whole grains. In the morning, top a bowl of hot oatmeal with some banana slices and a tablespoon of peanut butter to get a fruit serving as well as some healthy protein and fat. Another option would be to mix in some applesauce and cinnamon for an apple pie-esque breakfast treat. For a taste of fall, try some canned pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and a bit of maple syrup.
At lunch and dinner, try adding oats to some of your favorites. If you have a bread machine, use it to make a loaf of homemade oatmeal bread for sandwiches. You can also use oats to coat chicken breasts before baking to get a healthy crunch. Try substituting oatmeal for part of all of the bread in your standard meatloaf, hamburger, and meatball recipes. The oats act as a binder and give substance to the meats. Finally, don't forget dessert! Swap regular chocolate chip cookies for oatmeal chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin cookies. Bake fruit or make crisps topped with a mixture of oats and granola instead of all granola. Every little bit will help add up your servings of grain for the day!
