Is Oatmeal good to eat for breakfast?

Oatmeal can be a great healthy breakfast staple. Everything in moderation. There has been a debate that oatmeal may make you gain weight. If you consume Oatmeal in small portions you will be perfectly fine. In Fact in helps with weight loss and a great option for diabetics because it takes longer to digest and thus preventing a spike in their blood sugar. Enjoy an oatmeal breakfast especially if you have any gluten allergies.

What kind of Oatmeal is Healthiest?

There are 3 types of oats to look for that are readily available in stores. Oat Groats, Steel cut oats, Stoneground oats, Rolled Oats, Quick Oats, and Instant oats. The last 3 kids are what are most often used because they are easiest to cook.

Without going into great detail, Rolled oats are most commonly used even though it’s not the healthiest but healthier than quick oats and instant oats. Quick oats are a bit processed and rolled thinner so they can cook faster. Whereas the instant oats are the most processed. I used rolled oats in this oatmeal breakfast bowl recipe.

Helpful tips

  • Don’t have rolled oats, you may use other types of oats. Just follow the package directions for the cooking guide.
  • Any other milk can be used in place of coconut milk
  • Use any sweetener of choice: honey, agave, maple syrup, brown sugar, trivial, or monk fruit sweetener.
  • Be creative and add all your favorite toppings. You may also add some almonds

Storage:

Place cooked oatmeal in an airtight container without the toppings and store in the fridge for up to 5 days. You may reheat in the microwave when ready to eat if you prefer your oatmeal warm. Then top with your favorite fruit toppings.
