Health is wealth. Live like a healthy person, better to eat healthy foods and eat
more vegetables & fruits. Now a days lots of people are suffering with cholesterol.
If you want to reduce your cholesterol!!!!! Everyday better to take 1/2 cup of
oatmeal and one cup of curry and one cup of dal and yogurt. i.e sufficient for lunch/dinner.

The real stuff is the plain oat flakes from Quaker Oats or a similar brand.

The benefits of oatmeal are due to the fact that it's made from oats and oats are
a good source of both soluble and insoluble fiber. Oatmeal does not go through
any form of refined processing, which makes it an integral food because it does
not lose any of its nutritional value.

1 Cup water


1.Take a vessel add one cup of water. When water is boiling add oat flakes into

Vessel and mix well.

2. After 5 min your oatmeal is ready to eat.

Nutritional and Health Benefits of oatmeal:

Buildup of the body:

Oatmeal is full of proteins and minerals that help the body to build strong bones

and teeth as well as strengthen the connective tissue and stimulates

energy in general. Besides this, it also has a high content of calcium and

phosphorous. It is easy to digest and this is why it is considered a good food

for convalescing people, especially for women in postpartum situations since

it supposedly tones the uterus. It is known to strengthen the nervous system

and has tranquilizing and relaxing effects. Some studies have shown that these

effects happen to people that suffer the symptoms of smoking abstinence for

a long time, as well as with tranquilizers, medication or antidepressants.

A traditional way to overcome insomnia is by sleeping over a pillow

or in a mattress full of oatmeal.

The digestive connection:

Oatmeal contains a soluble fiber that acts in diverse ways on the digestive

apparatus. It gives volume to a diet, which improves the digestive process

and avoids and alleviates constipation. Oatmeal also helps to soften the

digestive tract, particularly for people that have gastritis and irritable intestine

syndrome. Besides this, since it drags the rest of the food on its way through

the intestines, eating it can be advantageous for preventing stomach cancer.

Oatmeal reduces the absorption of sugar in the blood and at the same time

is really good for diabetics. On the other hand oatmeal helps to improve

moody states in people. This is pretty useful when these mood swings

are part of PMS since oatmeal is able to stabilize the levels of estrogen and

diminishes liquid retention.

Soluble fiber:

One of the most significant advantages of oatmeal is that it helps to maintain

good cardiovascular health. The soluble fiber that it has helps to reduce

cholesterol and elevates cardiovascular health by diminishing arterial

hypertension. Oatmeal also contains high levels of oatmeal, which is essential

for the formation of red blood cells whose function is to bring oxygen to

the body, and it also avoids anemia that occurs when there is a lack of iron

in the body, particularly for women that have difficult menstrual cycles.

Selecting, storing and using:

Choose oatmeal flakes or oatmeal flour instead of getting the instant kind.

Store the oatmeal in a fresh place, away from the sunlight, preferably in

hermetic container and use it as soon as possible. Don’t use it anymore

if three months have gone by.

Oatmeal can be eaten raw or cooked and oatmeal with milk or water is

most known recipe. Besides this you can also add fruit juice to it.

if you add any fruit to it, it will turn into a super nutritious food and can be

used as an agent to thicken a large array of cooked recipes.
