Submitted by on October 29, 2011 – 6:00 amNo Comment

This Saturday, October 29th is National Oatmeal Day. Here are a few fun facts about why this time-honored breakfast should be celebrated:

  • Remember oatmeal baths from when you had the chicken pox? Well, oatmeal baths can also be used for relief from poison ivy, insect bites, sunburns and dry skin!
  • Having a light snack — like a bowl of oatmeal — a few hours before bedtime may help you sleep better, says Mayoclinic doctor.
  • They can be enjoyed sweet or savory.  Try some of these dinner recipes from Time magazine.
  • According to Real Simple contributor and registered dietitian Susan Kleiner, Ph.D., eating the same breakfast everyday “like oatmeal with seeds and nuts”  is one quick ritual for a better day. Read more here.
  • Whether it’s steel-cut or instant, an oat is an oat is an oat, says Cooking Light.  Flattening and steaming does not remove whole-grain benefits, so you get all of the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and oaty fiber from either type.
