Benefits of Oatmeal
If you’re looking for a comprehensive guide to all things oatmeal, check out this How to Make Oatmeal article that highlights everything from each type of oatmeal and how to cook it + the health benefits of this nutritious breakfast. We love oatmeal because:
- Calories: Oatmeal is a nutritionally dense whole grain, but lower in calories compared to many other grains. Per 1/2 cup of uncooked rolled oatmeal, there is only 150 calories compared to 1/2 cup uncooked white rice where there is 360 calories.
- Sugar: Oatmeal is low in sugar with just 1g sugar per serving.
- Protein: Per serving, rolled oats have 5g protein which is an excellent amount of protein to start your morning off!
- Fiber: One of oatmeal’s best attributes is its fiber content. Per serving you get 4g of fiber.
- 100% whole grain: One of the best parts about oatmeal is that it’s a 100% whole grain, which is a much better option than other refined grains.
- Delicious! But you already knew that 😀
