A good hearty breakfast is a bowl of steel cut oats. This is the best type of oatmeal because it is a true whole grain. It will help lower your cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar levels. Steel cut oats do not go through additional processing that regular oatmeal goes through. They are high in protein and fiber, no added sodium and have a lower calorie count. Usually they take about 45 minutes to cook and you need to constantly watch and stir while cooking on stove top. Using a slow cooker is easy and a healthy breakfast will be ready when you wake up.
