Researchers from the American Society for Nutrition reviewed nearly 30 studies. They found that those who eat a diet rich in fibre and whole grains may be able to slash their risk of EVER developing type II diabetes
by up to 40%!
That means reducing your risk of Type II Diabetes by almost half...
That's 40% less risk of forcing down flavourless meals, painfully piercing your fingers for blood tests and injecting yourself daily.
But that's not all.
People who ate more fibre and whole grains also cut their stroke risk by up to 43% and their chances of developing cardiovascular disease by as much as 26%! That's amazing!
The best part is you can incorporate fibre and grain-rich foods into your delicious meals. Oatmeal, whole wheat pasta, barley, bran and brown rice can all give your body the boost it needs to help keep diabetes
, stroke and heart disease
out of your life for good.
Plus, research shows that fueling your body with slower-burning carbohydrates (also called low-glycaemic-index foods) like oatmeal, you'll be able to concentrate better, maintain your energy levels for longer and snack less - so you'll lose weight too!
Too busy to make oats in the morning before leaving for work? Try making this delicious recipe for on-the-go breakfast:
Almond and Apple Honey Crunch Bar
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 tablespoon flaxseeds
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1/4 cup grated apple
1/3 cup currants
1/3 cup chopped raisins
1/4 cup creamy almond butter
1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 175°C. Coat a 20cm square pan with a little bit of butter.
Spread the oats, almonds, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds and sesame seeds on a large, rimmed baking sheet. Bake until the oats are lightly toasted and the nuts are fragrant, shaking the pan halfway through, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl. Add cereal currants, apples and raisins; toss to combine.
Combine the almond butter, honey, vanilla and salt in a small saucepan. Heat over a medium-low stove, stirring frequently, until the mixture bubbles lightly (about 2-5 minutes).
Pour the almond butter mixture over the dry ingredients and mix with a spoon or spatula until no dry spots remain. Transfer to the baking pan. Press the mixture down firmly to make an even layer.
Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. Cut into rectangle bars.
