Sow your oats!
Oats contain soluble fiber, known to help lower "bad" LDL cholesterol.
Whole oats, quick-cooking oats, and steel cut oats are delicious breakfast cereals.
Add oats to burgers, or top casseroles with a sprinkle of oats.
Beware of sugared and brown-sugared instant oatmeals and cold cereals that have sugar in the first two ingredients.
Even though they're oats, the sugar content reduces their nutrition value.
