January Is National Oatmeal Month

Yes, even oatmeal has a month to call its own, and it’s January. I’m not a breakfast eater, but if you are, here are some healthful facts you should know about oatmeal.

Here’s more about “National Oatmeal Month” according to an article by  Emily Smith from eatocracy.cnn.com,

Oatmeal is a great source of B vitamins and calcium, and it takes longer to digest so you feel fuller. Oatmeal also helps lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease.

A bowl of oatmeal doesn’t have to be all gloopy and unappealing. Oatmeal can be jazzed up with nuts and dried fruits, or for added sweetness, honey. It can be what you make it. It’s easy to take to work or eat on the go – who doesn’t like a warm breakfast on a cold winter’s morning?

Another idea, make granola: try toasting the ingredients you’d put in your oatmeal (oats, honey, nuts and dried fruit) in a 250 degree F oven for an hour or so, tossing occasionally.”
