Eating a morning meal is a healthy habit if you’re watching your weight. Research shows that regular breakfast eaters tend to be leaner and dieters are more successful at losing weight – and keeping it off – when they eat breakfast. What’s more, people who do typically get more of some important nutrients, like fiber and vitamins.
Eating the right foods can give you energy and prevent you from eating too much during the rest of the day.
To prepare this breakfast you will need chia seeds and oats. These two ingredients are extremely beneficial for those who have the medical problems that were stated previously.
Here are the benefits of oatmeal and chia seeds
Oatmeal is rich in beta-glucan which is a soluble fiber that is efficient in lowering the bad cholesterol. It is also very efficient in ameliorating the cardiovascular health.
Oatmeal is a rich source of thiamin, iron, zinc, manganese, selenium, magnesium, and phosphorus. Just one portion of prepared oatmeal contains 150 calories, 6 grams of proteins, and 4 grams of fiber.
This ingredient is a rich source of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. It has a positive effect on the cardiovascular health due to its powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Just 1 oz of chia seeds provides 30% manganese, 18% calcium, 27% phosphorus, and small amounts of copper and potassium. A lot of investigations have proven that is very beneficial in case of diabetes, arthritis and diverticulosis.
