Stay Energetic All Day With Oatmeal
Many people remember oatmeal as something suited to cold winter mornings, but this age-old dish is perfect for snack time. According to a Penn State University study, oatmeal helps you maintain a steady level of energy throughout the day. This is because of its large amount of extra soluble fiber, which helps slow the release of sugar into the bloodstream, helping you avoid sugar spikes andkeeping you from getting that sleepy feeling shortly after you eat. So when shopping for oatmeal, challenge yourself to look for brands that are low in sugar, because the added sweet stuff defeats the purpose of maintaining level blood sugar.
