Oatmeal for a Healthy Heart

February is the month of love! It is also coincidentally American Heart Month — reminding us as we embark on the new year that nothing is more important than thinking about our life choices and how those choices impact our health and well-being.

Cardiovascular disease (CVD)—including heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure—is the number 1 killer of men and women in the United States — a staggering and heart-wrenching statistic. But the good news is there are many preventative steps you can take to decrease your risk for CVD by making simply changes in your daily routine.

6 Grain Oatmeal and Bananas Booklet

Diet is a huge factor in preventing CVD. Limiting your saturated fats and cholesterol will reduce plaque build up and increase your heart health. One of the best foods for this is oatmeal! Whole-grains are essential to your diet because of their fiber and rich nutrient content. Oatmeal is packed with soluble fiber, which is linked to lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol, regulating blood sugar and lowering your risk of heart disease.

Having fiber in your diet can also protect against obesity, which is directly correlated to increased risk for CVD. Fiber helps to lower your insulin levels, preventing a blood sugar spike post-meal. Why is this important? When you have high insulin levels for long periods of time your body stores the extra energy as fat increasing your chances for obesity. Foods with low glycemic loads that won’t cause blood sugar spikes include veggies, berries, nuts and seeds, beans, brown rice, quinoa, buckwheat, rye and oatmeal — our favorite!

With up to 5 grams a fiber in 1/3 cup of purely elizabeth oatmeal, this amounts to 20% of your recommend daily intake. Women need 25 grams of fiber per day, and men need 38 grams per day, according to the Institute of Medicine.

Our oatmeal is also free of added sugar — a big plus when keeping keeping your GI in check as sugar is the highest GI carbohydrate. If we’re looking to sweeten our oats up we use coconut sugar, a low-glycemic sweetener that won’t cause the dreaded insulin spike. Another favorite oatmeal topping of ours is purely elizabeth granola + fruit — combined it can add up to around 10 grams of fiber (almost half of your recommend daily intake)!

Your food choices shouldn’t be boring, and neither should caring about your health! We want healthy hearts this year, so make small goals to change your lifestyle on your path to prevention.

Breakfast Ideas that go way Beyond Oatmeal

An amazing review from Cool Mom Picks featuring our Ancient Grain Oatmeal.

“Everyone’s always talking about how hard it is to get a good dinner on the table, but I find that breakfast is way more hectic, with less time and no delivery options! There’s always cereal, but unfortunately most cold cereals completely lack what we need to start the day off right. There’s oatmeal too—these oatmeal recipes saved me last winter—but I still need more. These tasty, quick-cook hot cereal brands and recipes are the answer.

Purely Elizabeth has been around for a little while but I just wasn’t so into their products when they first came on the scene. However Ms. Purely Elizabeth and her team have been making serious improvements since I last sampled them. I just tried the latest line of granolas and hot cereal and I admit, I am now hooked.

Purely Oatmeal Inspiration

All Purely Elizabeth cereals are certified gluten-free, vegan, and made without refined sugar; the four hot cereals are organic, too. My boys agree with me that they’re also incredibly delicious. Most take a while to cook—these are real grains, mamas—but the original cooks up in just two minutes. Oh, and the original: a lifesaver. While other quick-cook cereals can be skimpy on nutrients, this stuff has seven grams of protein, five grams of fiber, and a healthy dose of omega-3’s. Skimpy does not apply here.

I’ve been keeping this hot cereal simple and preparing it the same way that I make the Coconut Chai Oatmeal recipe from my site. What will you make with it?”

Visit the Purely Elizabeth website to purchase their hot cereals and other products.
