Make your Cholesterol Cringe with this Tasty Hot Cereal!

Russ and I love our hot cereal in the morning.  We have gotten it down to a science with a little bit of this and a little bit of that, and our hot cereal is truly heart smart, cholesterol cringing goodness.

We start with a mixture of steel cut oats and oatbran.  And top off with some chia seeds.

Chia seeds offer a bit of omega 3 fats, soluble fiber and even some calcium.  Since I am not a big milk drinker, I will take every bit of calcium I can get.

Sometimes we add walnuts…

Sometimes we even add one of Bob’s Red Mill multigrain hot cereal mixtures. I like the Mighty Tasty GF Hot Cereal which is low in FODMAPs and has 4 grams of fiber per 1/4 cup.

And then when it’s all good to go, we add lots of nutritional perks: lots of fresh or frozen berries and a smattering pumpkin seeds and nuts.  I LOVE pumpkin seeds! Do you?

Oats and oat bran are generally easy on the belly and yet pack a big dose of soluble fiber that binds the cholesterol and removes it from your body.

I like our mixture of grains, nuts and fruit too because it keeps me full.  I hate feeling hungry and this mixture is great fuel for our running workout.
