Blueberries are beneficial brain food because they are rich in antioxidants that protect your brain from oxidative damage. They are also known to be anti-cancer, an aid in weight loss efforts, and improve urinary tract health. And because their antioxidant power isn’t diminished by freezing them, they are beneficial fresh or frozen.
Adding oatmeal to this not only makes it taste delicious but it helps you feel full longer thanks to the beneficial fiber. Not only will that fiber help you feel full longer, but it’ll sweep up the waste and assist your body in eliminating it. Oatmeal is effective at reducing blood sugar levels significantly so that is great for diabetics and those with cardiovascular disease. And even though we hear all about fruits and vegetables being rich in antioxidants, oatmeal is, too!
