Super Oatmeal

Consider this super oatmeal recipe as a great start to your day. Not only delicious and creamy, but it can help you fight heart disease and inflammation. Oatmeal is a great source of soluble fiber, peanut butter a great source of mono-unsaturated fat, and 100% cocoa is a great source of antioxidants called polyphenols. Both soluble fiber and mono-unsaturated fat have been shown to lower the bad cholesterol called LDL, and polyphenol are plant based nutrients that have anti-inflammatory properties. Healthy eating that tastes good. Win-win!
