Only Good Things Can Come From Whole Grain Rolled Oats :P

If you are at all interested in living a healthy life Whole Foods Market has a wonderful website! It is full of yummy looking recipes and healthy tips!

I just read one of their blog posts about oats and did you know one cup of rolled oats contains:
  • 4 grams of fiber
  • 4 grams of fat (only 1 gram of saturated fat)
  • 6 grams of protein
  • no cholesterol
  • Iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, and manganese

And oats are practically as cheap as dirt!
Especially in winter, why go for the cheerio's when there is such a warm and happy alternative?

Not to mention they offer all of these awesome recipes to encourage oat filled decisions.
Who could say no to Oatmeal Apple Pancakes???

Just saying, eating healthy does not have to be expensive or yucky, it just takes a little research :)

P.S. Random fact - Whole Foods Market purchased the Greenlife Grocery chain in May, I guess it was just a matter of time, the stores were identical already :P
