Oatmeal: The Superfood Even Meat-Eaters Should Devour

As I said in my last post, people require vitamin C and several of the B-complexes to be had through diet each day. There are 9, including C and B12.

Here’s a killer: 1/2 cup of dry oatmeal provides over 50% daily value of both biotin and B1 – and meat is not even a top source of either one.

Translation: vegans, vegetarians, and meat-eaters alike need to worry about those 2 vitamins every day. So we should all be eating oatmeal.

Gluten-free eaters: Not to worry. You can simply go with the gluten-free option!

Raw foodists: more posts are in store for you!


Depending on how you decorate your oatmeal, you can up the nutrition:

Stir in some ground flaxseed for a whopping dose of omega-3 fatty acids. 


If you’re into that, flaxseed has a really good omega 3:6 ratio 

Let frozen berries melt sweetly over your oatmeal with their antioxidant power…


Go creamy…


Unsweetened almond milk tastes the most like milk, to me.

Go plain…


Or go crazy!

Point is, you have options.

Personally, I am opposed to adding something “bad” to get me to eat something really healthy. But I’m all for adding something “okay”!

For instance, [real] maple syrup is better than brown sugar – and if sweetness gets me to eat more oatmeal, I’m better off.



Oats, by the way, have a low glycemic index. Meaning, they are a slow-release food meant to provide energy (like carbs do) as you need it! Plus, they are as filling as they can be without weighing you down and making you lethargic. At least, that’s my experience!

It’s time to get started with yours…

Okay. Bye!
