A steady diet of oatmeal in any of its various varieties has been shown to help with lowering cholesterol and provide easily digestible complex carbohydrates. It's just a good, warm breakfast, and whole grain rolled oats, combined with the flavors of cinnamon, honey and vanilla, are a comforting way to start the day.
