Today I am going to look at the calories in oatmeal and some of its benefits. Oatmeal is considered a healthy breakfast and i read recently that 80% of households have a box in the cupboard somewhere, and although i don’t like the taste very much there are a lot of reasons to have oatmeal for breakfast. The most popular reason being that its very high in soluble fiber, which absorbs a considerable amount of water keeping you feeling full for a lot longer. If, like me, you don’t like the taste of oatmeal then you can always try some recipes which will give it some much needed flavour.
The calories in oatmeal and not very high considering that not a lot of it is eaten in terms of quantity. Here’s the breakdown:
Oatbran (1 oz) contains 97 calories
Oatmeal (Old Fashioned) (1 oz) contains 110 calories
Instant Oats (1 oz) contains 105 calories
Rolled Oats (1 oz) contains 110 calories
