Mindful Monday GOKI Readers, I apologize for sending this post later than expected, but, such is life. Plus I just finished watching Dancing With The Stars. So my question to you is, at this point of the competition, who is your favorite to win?

April 18, 2011 Health Tip Of The Day


Studies have shown that foods such as oatmeal that are high in soluble fiber may help to lower LDL cholesterol without lowering HDL cholesterol. Whether you choose steel-cut oats (the most roughly cut and least processed), rolled or "old-fashioned" oats, quick oats, or instant, all types of oats are effective at reducing cholesterol. To get the daily 3 grams of soluble fiber recommended for cholesterol lowering, you'll need to eat: 2 ounces of oat bran (2/3 cup dry or about 1 1/2 cups cooked) or 3 ounces of oatmeal (1 cup dry or 2 cups cooked).

As Always, To Your Health!

P.S.  Check out this video about the benefits of oatmeal.
