Healthy, Hearty and oh, so delicious!

Oats deserve attention for their nutritional value, especially for their fiber (1/2 of which is insoluble and aids in digestion and the other 1/2 is the soluble type that lowers cholesterol. All oats are whole grains and still have the bran (oat bran is the outer layer of the oat kernel only).

100 grams of dry, rolled oats contains 380 calories, 67 gms. of carbohydrate, 16 gms. of protein, 6 gms. of fat as well as a good supply of thiamin, vitamin E, iron and phosphorus.

Oatmeal is the "secret ingredient" in my meatloaf, replacing bread crumbs and resulting in a moist, flavorful and nutritious dish!
