Prevent diabetes, heart problems, get more Vitamin C, potassium
I have previously written about Oats lower cholesterol and Using food to control cholesterol (click BACK button to get back to this page), which obviously will help you avoid future heart problems. But then, when I cook the rolled oats (I refused to purchase the quick-cooking or instant version), I added sugar. Now I leave out the sugar, but add slices of banana, cut pieces of orange, or other fruits available. The added fruits will provide the sugar needed plus give me that extra Vitamin C to keep me healthy. I understand potassium, present in great quantity in bananas, is good for cramps.
