Today’s Health-e-Recipe for Baked Oatmeal has a creamy texture yet is made from a whole grain.
Whole grains contain the healthy bran and germ of the grain, which are removed when processed into refined grain products like white bread.
Oatmeal helps to lower harmful blood cholesterol and protect your heart, and may help protect against colon cancer by keeping your digestive system healthy. And oatmeal can be substituted for some of the flour in recipes for pancakes, cookies and muffins and other baked goods. All plant-based foods contain dietary fiber, while animal proteins contain none.
AICR recommends eating at least 3 servings (1/2 cup or 1 slice) of whole-grains each day. Click here to receive a weekly Health-e-Recipe email from AICR.
