Who doesn’t eat oatmeal as a breakfast food? I sure do, and I love it with strawberries, blueberries, and a teaspoon of peanut butter for some extra crunch, fat, and protein.
Made from steel-cut or rolled oats, oatmeal contains a fantastic fiber known as beta-glucan, which is amazing for keeping your stomach full for a good amount of time.
Your body and your gut will be very happy that you eat oatmeal as a breakfast food because your digestive system will be healthy and properly working all day long; you’ll feel light, full, and energetic; and your brain will be nourished too, thanks to the high amounts of manganese, selenium, iron, magnesium, B vitamins, and zinc.
Unfortunately, oatmeal isn’t rich in proteins, but you can add a scoop of protein powder for a boost of nutrients. If you’re gluten intolerant, don’t forget to check the label to see if it’s certified gluten-free or not.
