I recently found oat meal in it's natural state. (grain form)
I have to soak it for 24 hours to break through the husk.
I have always loved oatmeal, and about half of the time, I would eat it raw.
The most amazing part of oatmeal is it's abailable to suck up cholesterol.
Many years ago, at a gym that I belonged to, they tested my cholesterol, and it was only 119 because I ate two oat bran muffins daily.
The government of the U.S. allows them to put on the label that it lowers cholesterol, asnd the FDA is very strict about making claims such as these.
Oatmeal is a totally awesome food, as any whole grain food is.
I LOVE OATMEAL!
