Know Your Oats!
Knowing your oats: What does that mean? If you are looking for a great carb to help you lower your LDL cholesterol, otherwise known as the "bad" cholesterol, oats can help you out. Whole oats or quick-cooking oats are delicious breakfast cereals. But beware of hidden sugars. Try to stay away from instant oatmeal and cold cereals that have sugar in the first two ingredients. We don't want to counteract the goodness of oats with too much sugar.
