The benefits of oatmeal, incl. 4 recipes!

  1. Do you remember the oatmeal porridge from the past? I vividly remember my grandmother scooping up the cooked oatmeal, including the skins. I was always horrified.

  1. But that's changing! Oatmeal is completely hip and cool again, mainly due to all kinds of creative additions in the form of nuts and fruit. And those skins on the milk are not necessary at all, but we didn't know that before.

  1. Oatmeal is a very special product. How they ever came up with the idea is a mystery to me. The whole oat grains are the first to be cut in half, after which they are rolled. Because of all these flat pieces, the structure of the oats becomes finer, and it is more pleasant to eat.

  1. Real oatmeal is made from oats, nothing more and nothing less. How natural do you want it? Oatmeal is also gluten-free. That is, if the manufacturer has not indicated on the packaging that traces of gluten may have entered the oatmeal during the production process.

The benefits of oatmeal at a glance

  1. We have now taken a look at the theoretical side of eating oatmeal. But of course it is about everyday life and the possible results. Below are 20 benefits of eating oatmeal. After reading this, you will agree that oatmeal definitely deserves the title â € superfoodâ € ™!

  1. Oatmeal is a very rich source of important minerals. You have already seen this in the previous section about the nutritional value of oatmeal. The main mineral in oatmeal is manganese. A portion of 100 grams of oatmeal contains no less than 28% of the recommended daily amount.

  1. Manganese is important for your bones. In addition, manganese helps to make energy available in the body. Zinc is also an important mineral in oatmeal. Zinc is important for our resistance and helps in growth.

  1. The latter is of course very important for children!

  1. For your health it is very important to get your essential fats in balance, to keep one! Oatmeal helps you with this. Oatmeal contains so-called lipids that are an important aid in this process.

  1. More and more studies show that good health can almost always be traced back to a good balance of essential fats.

  1. Thorough medical research has shown that eating oatmeal can reduce the risk of colon cancer by up to 40%. This effect also applies to other types of cancer, but the effect on colon cancer is greatest.

  1. Incidentally, I must honestly say that this reduced chance is not exclusively linked to the daily eating of oatmeal, but to the regular consumption of whole grain products in general. It's all about eating fiber-rich products.

  1. Did you know that you can reduce the risk of colon cancer by 10% if you eat 10 grams more fiber every day?

  1. Oatmeal has a very dusty image. It is therefore difficult to imagine that your libido would be increased by eating oatmeal every day.

  1. We all know that women who are just pregnant, or want to become pregnant, must take extra folic acid to prevent the risk of abnormalities in the unborn child. We are talking about the chance of Spina Bifida, better known as an 'open spine'.

  1. Prior to pregnancy, and during the first three months, a pregnant woman needs a minimum of 400 micrograms daily. folic acid.

  1. As you can read in the list with the nutritional value of oatmeal, oatmeal contains a relatively high amount of folic acid. In addition, there are multiple carbohydrates and various forms of vitamin B in the oatmeal. All of which are important for your body and for the healthy development of the various body tissues.

  1. Needless to say, one of those tissues is the placenta, the lifeblood of the unborn child.

  1. Bone decalcification, or osteoporosis, is the result of a lack of calcium. This is increasingly common in the elderly in particular. Strong bones are of course very important, in order to avoid that you are immediately confronted with annoying fractures in a small accident, which also recover more slowly afterwards.

  1. Besides this important calcium, oatmeal also contains vitamins K and D. These two are indispensable for the correct absorption of calcium by the body. Without enough vitamins K and D, the extra intake of calcium makes little sense.

  1. Of course it remains very difficult and embarrassing, but in most cases constipation, or constipation, is due to bad living habits: Not enough exercise, unnecessary stool retention, irregular eating and of course too little fiber. This last cause in particular is the most important.

  1. Fibers in your intestines attract moisture, making the stool more flexible and giving it more volume. Two important factors for a smooth bowel movement. According to the doctors, you should eat about 30 grams of fiber per day.

  1. Oatmeal is a whole grain product, so a guarantee for a generous amount of fiber!

  1. Oatmeal contains not only fiber, but also slow carbohydrates. These two are responsible for a fast and long-lasting feeling of fullness. This in turn is important to prevent you from snacking again in between, because you run out of energy.

  1. The carbohydrates in the oatmeal have a low Glycemic Index. This means that this energy is absorbed by the body very slowly. This is again important to prevent your blood sugar from rising unnecessarily, with the result that your body will produce much less insulin.

  1. A complicated process that can be prevented by eating slow carbohydrates. And the slow absorption keeps you feeling full for a long time, and you have more than enough energy until lunch.

  1. Whole grains and fiber are important in the fight against the lifestyle disease type 2 diabetes. As you have read before, oatmeal provides a slow absorption of energy, which is important for keeping your blood sugar in balance.

  1. Oatmeal therefore has a low Glycemic Index. The absence of peaks and troughs reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by about 40%.

  1. An American study of more than 10,000 children showed that children who eat the recommended amount of fiber daily are much less likely to be overweight. The number of overweight and obese children would fall by 50%. An impressive result!

  1. This is of course not all that surprising, especially considering the fact that American children are big fans of cola and other sweets. These are all fast sugars that are of course responsible for obesity.

  1. By replacing this with slow carbohydrates, you will of course make a lot of profit in a relatively short time. But that does not mean that the effect is not very clear.

  1. Your body needs protein to boost your resistance and to grow. Very important for the kids, who are still growing. All cereals contain protein, but oatmeal is the big winner here. Oats are the best protein supplier by ratio.

  1. A nice plate of oatmeal porridge every day with breakfast is an excellent basis for healthy growth and good resistance. Not only for yourself, but also for the kids.

  1. It is a well-known phenomenon that your concentration deteriorates sharply if your blood sugar level keeps peaking and falling.

  1. During the peaks you may be able to concentrate well, but the inevitable dips will greatly diminish your ability to concentrate. To avoid this, it is important to stop fast carbohydrates.

  1. These cause a spike in blood sugar, followed by the inevitable trough.

  1. Oatmeal has a low Glycemic Index. This means that the carbohydrates are absorbed by the body very slowly and in doses, so that peaks and troughs in the blood sugar level can be prevented.

  1. One of the many vitamins that oatmeal is rich in, provides a stronger nervous system. This concerns vitamin B6. But that is not the only function of vitamin B6: B6 also produces the so-called happiness hormone, the hormone serotonin.

  1. But oatmeal also contains tryptophan, one of the basic substances of serotonin. People who have high levels of serotonin are happy people. In any case, they feel happy. This same serotonin is converted back to melatonin during the evening, which will ensure that you can sleep well.

  1. A wonderful example of the wonderful functioning of the body and all its processes!

  1. If you buy the right oatmeal, you have a natural product in your hands. Of course you can buy oatmeal from a well-known brand, including flavor, but it often contains extra sweeteners, strange e-numbers and, in particular, a lot of salt. All things that completely destroy the healthy character of oatmeal. The pure, 100% natural oatmeal has no additives.

  1. This pure form of oatmeal has a very low Glycemic Index, which means that the energy supplied is slowly absorbed by the body. The number of calories in the oatmeal is also limited: 68 kilocalories per 100 grams of oatmeal.

  1. This keeps you feeling full for a long time and you only get a limited amount of calories. And because of this full feeling, you avoid eating other (unhealthy) foods in between.

  1. Quitting smoking is extremely difficult for many people! Eating oatmeal can help you a little bit. It is for good reason that many specialized clinics for nicotine addiction serve oatmeal as standard breakfast.

  1. Oatmeal has the property that it counteracts depression and provides a calm feeling. All tiredness, twitches and stress disappear like snow in the sun. Well, almost. In any case, it will help you in the right direction. The need to start smoking is significantly reduced.

  1. Oatmeal takes care of your body not only from the inside, but also from the outside! Oatmeal moisturizes your skin and will make your skin feel like a soft baby skin again.

  1. Do you have a blender on the counter? Then put a cup of oatmeal in it, and grind it until it is powder. Dissolve this powder in warm water until it becomes a creamy substance. Set it aside for an hour. Then spread the mixture onto your skin and leave it on for about 15 minutes. Then you can rinse the oatmeal cream with warm water.

  1. You will be amazed at the result!

  1. As you already read in the previous benefit, oatmeal can also take care of your skin. This can be especially helpful if you have a lot of eczema or psoriasis. Oatmeal has the nice property that it can moisturize the skin, so the skin will dry out less quickly.

  1. It may be the easiest way to take an oatmeal bath. To prepare this, you can, for example, fill a pantyhose with oatmeal and hang it in the tub. To take full advantage of this, it must of course first be withdrawn. You can also run the oatmeal through a blender and dissolve the obtained oatmeal powder in the bath.

  1. It might be a bit strange, but you can always try!

  1. Oatmeal is not 'just like that' a helper to lower your blood pressure, but can actually ensure that the medication can be halved, or even stopped altogether.

  1. A study showed that a daily plate of oatmeal resulted in an improvement of over 70% in the test subjects. This means that 70% of the subjects were able to halve their medicines, or even leave them completely.

  1. Of course you can never just stop taking this kind of medication on your own. Always check with your doctor before flushing the medication down the toilet.

  1. There seems to be a substance in the oatmeal that would prevent the dangerous fat deposits on the vessel walls. This makes the risk of developing heart problems many times smaller than normal.

  1. In addition, eating fiber-rich foods is better for your heart anyway.

  1. Oatmeal also has the nice property of significantly lowering cholesterol in a natural way. How does this work? Oatmeal has to bond with bile salt in your body to be able to leave the body in a natural way. Cholesterol is a basic ingredient for the production of bile salts.

  1. The result: If a lot of oatmeal is eaten, a lot of bile salt will be needed. A lot of bile salt means a lower cholesterol level.

  1. Preparing oatmeal seems very easy: You take a bowl, put in the oatmeal and add rice milk or water. Of course that is the way, but we forget one important thing: oatmeal naturally contains the substance phytic acid. This substance can be responsible for bone loss.

  1. In normal cases, phytic acid is broken down by another substance called phytase. But oatmeal contains virtually no phytase. You will therefore have to take care of the breakdown of the phytic acid yourself.

  1. You can do this by soaking the oatmeal overnight in soy milk or yogurt, for example. You can also soak it in plain water, but then you have to add a good scoop of rye flour. Rye flour contains a lot of phytase.

  1. When preparing your breakfast the next morning, you can prepare the oatmeal in the normal way by boiling it, or you can use it in a tasty smoothie!

4 delicious oatmeal recipes

  1. Actually, these are not recipes, because you just add certain fruits or nuts to the oatmeal. It is, of course, about the right combination of flavors that can make your oatmeal breakfast special.

  1. I hereby give you 4 combinations:

  1. The name says it all: You add passion fruit, banana and mandarin. Make sure you put the oatmeal in a bowl the night before and fill it with coconut milk, for example. The next morning you can add the fruit and enjoy!

  1. It is great to add tasty fruit to your oatmeal. The easiest way is to buy a bag of frozen fruit. You can store this almost indefinitely, and you always have fresh fruit at hand. For that extra flavor, you can grate some coconut over it.

  1. Don't forget to prepare the oatmeal the night before, like the previous variation.

  1. This is a very classic combination, but oh so good! To do this, cook the oatmeal in a saucepan with rice milk. Depending on the type of oatmeal, this will take between 10 and 20 minutes. Then add a handful of soaked raisins and some cinnamon. You can cut the apple into small strips or cubes and add it too.

  1. Of course, prepare the oatmeal first, by putting it in the fridge the night before. This time not with rice milk, but with almond milk. To prepare your breakfast, all you have to do is peel the orange and cut the kiwi.

  1. If you like something sweeter, you can add some agave syrup or honey. A little cashew nuts also taste great!

Finallyâ €

  1. Well, that was an impressive list.

  1. Quickly to the store to buy oatmeal? Then I would like to point out again that it is better to go to the health food store or the organic store. This is where the chances are best that you can buy the pure form of oatmeal, the oatmeal without any form of strange additives…
