Is oatmeal actually that healthy?

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.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
