Oatmeal and Omega-3

Sometimes when people say, "My God, are you starving to death?" I say, "No, I eat oatmeal."

It's scientifically proven that oatmeal reduces your cholesterol, and contributes much-needed fiber to your diet. I like to pimp my oatmeal with fresh fruit and ground flax seeds, which add valuable Omega-3 fatty acids to my daily intake. I suffer from dry-eye syndrome and my contacts really give me a bad case of Tales From The Crypt by 6:00 p.m. I do find, however, that when I'm consistent with the flax seeds that problem is greatly diminished.

The other value-add, for me, is that I don't have that 10 p.m. sugar-drop where I feel like I could eat a small child.

Eat some oatmeal, y'all. Feel better! Live longer!

So I guess the cup of coffee and BC powder that I called breakfast today gets an RBJ rating of zero stars!
