41 Reasons to Start Your Day With Oatmeal

Oatmeal can help lower your weight and your risk of chronic disease.
Reduce your risk of disease and slim down by starting your day with this easy breakfast food.

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but even knowing that many of us are starting things off on the wrong foot morning after morning. We grab high-calorie breakfast sandwiches, sugary pastries, and enormous coffees that are more dessert than a drink, leaving us hungry again before the clock strikes noon.

While the never-ending supply of unhealthy breakfast foods may beckon you from their shelves in the supermarket, inexpensive and easy-to-prepare oatmeal can set you up for a better morning and a healthier life. This popular grain is so much more than just another cereal, it’s a powerhouse food for both weight watchers and the health-conscious alike. Oatmeal has been linked to lower rates of asthma, heart disease, and colon cancer, but it’s pretty unlikely you could say the same about your average bagel.

It’s time we take control of our morning meal.
