Eat Clean Challenge: Day 9

Boost your fiber intake with some morning oats.

Day #9 -Boost your fiber intake with some morning oats

Eat clean action step: 

Increase your soluble fiber with ½ cup of hearty cooked oats for breakfast!

Oats are a nutrient dense breakfast option that contains soluble fiber – a fiber responsible for promoting weight loss and stabilizing blood sugars, while lowering the risk of high cholesterol, diabetes and cancer.

Half a cup of cooked oats provides 2g of soluble fiber and is a good source of calcium and phosphorus. When purchasing oats select whole oat groats or steel cut oats. Avoid quick cooking oats which are far more processed and can raise blood sugar levels.

Oats can be rinsed and soaked over night or can be boiled. Try a bowl of warming oats in the morning with fresh berries, your favorite nuts and seeds and/or a sprinkle of cinnamon and hemp hearts. You can also try incorporating oats into baked goods to pump up the fiber content.

Please note:  If you require gluten free, ensure that your oats are labeled certified gluten free to avoid cross contamination.
