Oatmeal with orange and cinnamon

Whole oats are an excellent source of fiber, protein and vitamins. Studies have shown that whole oats have a specific kind of fiber which has shown to be especially effective in lowering cholesterol. Contain vitamins, including vitamin E, vitamin B, magnesium and nutrients, including iron and calcium.

Eating whole grains can lower your risk for several diseases, including high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes. Avoid prepackaged oatmeal that may be high in both sodium and sugar and lower in beneficial fiber. I like very much oatmeal. I used to make lot of different dessert from it. Sometimes we eat this dessert instead of Breakfast or Dinner. This cooked oatmeal is the perfect way to start or end a day of healthy eating. Fell free to add any other fruits to taste.
I recommend for people who suffer from diabetes and also for people who want to eat healthy dessert, but you don`t need to forget about quantity of dessert.
``Mens sana in corpore sano`` is a latin proverb and means `A healthy mind in a healthy body`.
