Healthy Toppings for Your OatmealDaniel Brody
When we need to lose weight, we always look for those that are rich in fiber because it helps us feel fuller in a longer period of time. One of the foods that we turn to is oatmeal. It contains insoluble fiber that helps maintain weight because it prevents overeating during the day. But for those who want to make their oatmeal tastier, here are some of the healthy toppings you can add.
The nutrients you will gain will vary depending on what type of fruit you would prefer to add as toppings. Bananas for potassium. Pineapple, mango, strawberries, and oranges for vitamin C. Instead of adding sugar to your oatmeal, why not sweeten it with a fruity flavor like melon and apples?
If you prefer something crunchy, why not add nuts and other nut-like foods (walnut, almonds, pistachio, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, cashews)? These are rich with protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and dietary fiber. Some of these nuts contain calcium and minerals too.
If the sweet taste of fruits just can’t satisfy your sweet tooth, then you may opt for honey, molasses, or fruit jam. But make sure that the one you will choose is not too processed for the market because chances are, you will not gain its nutrients. So, read the labels for an organic one.
Yes, you read it right. You can definitely add vegetables on your oatmeal for a powerhouse meal full-packed with vitamins and minerals. For example, sliced carrots or eggplant.
For immediate results on your weight loss efforts, why not add hcg injections to your diet?
