Oatmeal is a fiber rich food that provides a quick boost of energy from carbohydrates, but will not result in a sugar crash that is common with many breakfast cereals. The fiber in oatmeal will feed the beneficial bacteria in your digestivie tract, helping to keep the digestion system healthy. This means you can easily absorb the nutrients in oatmeal and avoid constipation.
