Oatmeal Great Benefits for a Stronger Healthier Body

food oatmeal dr martha castro tijuana mexico

Oatmeal is one of my favorite choices of food to eat in the morning. Oatmeal contains vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that make me feel so much better through out the day. It also contains carbohydrates, proteins and soluble fiber which helps me not to feel bloated. Soluble fiber also reduces the levels of LDL or “bad” cholesterol by blocking its absorption into the bloodstream.

Oatmeal with Cinnamon and Apples

Other benefits:

Its main ingredient is manganese, which it has been proven scientifically to reduce the inflammation of the joints, improves bone health and it has been linked to lower incidents of seizures in patients with epilepsy.

Oatmeal and Strawberries

If you want to enjoy your oatmeal in the morning you can add some banana, apple, no sugar, water and maybe a bit of low-fat milk, lots of cinnamon one day and the next I add vanilla, one day blue berries next day strawberries. I personally do not like to add pecans but some people can’t eat oatmeal without adding pecans. It’s your choice.

Oatmeal Bananas and Berries

I prefer steel-cut oatmeal. Others prefer the rolled or irish oats. Whatever the kind if you like them, enjoy them!

Infertility in young women

Endometriosis can usually be treated by medication or surgery designed to preserve fertility. However, a few patients may have symptoms so severe that the uterus and ovaries must be surgically removed. Fortunately for most patients, alternative treatments are available and hysterectomy is rarely necessary.

NOTE: Remember that the best medicines are education and prevention

I just like to eat, and THAT is why I have to keep on moving, my friends. And I do. I exercise a lot. My favorite sports to practice: Bicycling and running upstairs, up and down.

So, I can afford this kind of meal, but not often though and in small portions. The good thing is that this wonderful messy food is in Dubai. So I can’t try it very often, LOL, especially now with the Coronavirus infecting all countries around the world and consequent travel restrictions.

Quick Breakfast Ideas for You to Start Your Day Strong and Happy!

Have in mind that the kind of breakfast you should eat depends on the activity you are going to do that day. If you are going to exercise or not, the intensity of your physical activity, etc.

It is important to eat breakfast, but when you get up early in the morning to go out for a bike ride you don’t want to stuff yourself or you will feel bloated while riding your bike, and that is a very uncomfortable feeling.

If you have to hurry every morning before you go out to work you don’t want to spend hours cooking and eating breakfast. You don’t want eat a lot either, just the proper amount of food with the best quality of ingredients to keep you strong and sharp the first hours of your day.

So here there are some examples:

BAKED EGG IN AVOCADO
