It’s National Oatmeal Day—what better time to come in from the cooler weather and kick back with a bowl of oatmeal!
With just 1, fiber-packed half cup serving, oatmeal makes you feel full longer so you are not craving a little something extra soon after breakfast. Plus, it’s low in fat, so it’s heart- healthy and a great way to start your morning!
