We’re convinced that oatmeal is the healthiest breakfast for the budget-conscious, time scrapped, and health-focused person. A recent report by the World Cancer Fund and American Institute for Cancer Research found that every 3 servings of whole grains per day decreases one’s risk for colorectal cancer by 17% (source: http://bit.ly/2xcdwqD).
Whole grains (like old fashioned oats) are high in fiber and promote the production of butyrate by our gut bacteria, a short-chain fatty acid that suppresses the inflammatory immune response in the colon (source: http://bit.ly/2xam7fT). Wheat germ, a lectin found in whole grains, has been shown to have anti-tumor effects (source: http://bit.ly/2fwxJ2J). Grains also reduce cholesterol and are associated with lower mortality, obesity, and inflammation.
Throw in some fruit, nuts, ground flaxseed, maple syrup, and you’ve got yourself an extremely inexpensive, delicious, and nutritious meal. Your bowels will probably thank you within minutes of consumption 💩. You’ll be taking direct control of reducing your risk for some of the most prevalent chronic diseases 💪🏼. And you’ll be putting rocket fuel in the tank to launch you into an epic day🤘🏼
