Health Steps: Rolled Oats

Rolled oats with honey, dried cranberries and fresh banana.

Rolled oats are considered an excellent choice when it comes to a healthy diet. They make for good breakfast food, and can also be eaten as a snack at midday.

As a good source of dietary fibre, iron and thiamine, it is claimed that these oats can help reduce the amount of bad cholesterol in the bloodstream. And for those looking to shed some pounds, it’s amazing that rolled oats have been found to be a “natural weight-loss food” because they fill you up and help keep you on your diet plan.

Today I’m sharing a simple way to prepare and enjoy your rolled oats 🙂

Snack Packs, Grab Bags!

One snack pack for each day!

I haven’t been posting for a couple of days now, and that’s because I’ve been buried under the enormous pile of work I’ve to cover before my semester final exams which are just in two days! This evening, though, I’ve the luxury of spending a little time here as earlier today I spent 10 hours at Starbucks cramming my mind. It’s safe to say it’s bamboozled right now, with all the abstract concepts I’ve had to plough through! 😦

Relating to school and studying, today I’m sharing about something I’ve found particularly useful. And I am almost certain this could work well too even for the non-schooling (i.e. those of you older ones, ha ha).

Do you find yourself getting hungry in the middle of the day, despite having had lunch and wondering just where you can get your tummy filled? Yet, you don’t want to be snacking too much because you’re afraid off putting on the pounds? What do you do then?

Well, I’ve been snacking a lot, but on fruits! I call them snack packs. Excellent source of vitamins, refreshing, and just what you need to satisfy those hunger pangs — with all natural goodness, at that! What’s not to love? 🙂

Fruity love!

Now why I call them grab bags is this: they’re splendid for those grab-and-go mornings.
