Instead of sugar: Instead of loading up your oatmeal with sugar and cream, use low fat or nonfat milk, and add some fruit such as blueberries. Blueberries have natural sweetness and are packed with antioxidants and Vitamin C.

Is it healthy to eat oatmeal every morning?

Generally yes: Steel cut oats are the healthiest because they are the least processed and retain most of the nutritional value of oats with thiamine, iron, calcium. Magnesium, phosphorus, and manganese. Also high fiber content, low in cholesterol, and low glycemic index.

Does oatmeal contain any soy?

It should not: But in the processing, if soy is also on the conveyor belt, there may be cross contamination. Best to read the label and call the manufacture of the product you purchased.

That is an excellent: Snack. Before bed is ok if you are not excessive. Slow cook oatmeal for a filling snack with soluble fiber that can help to reduce your LDL cholesterol.
