Start your Day Right with One of Nature’s Ultimate Supergrains
Last month was a super busy traveling month for me. In fact, I only stayed in Manila for only 5 days the entire month and most of my days I’ve been spending my breakfast either inside a restaurant of a cruise ship or a buffet spread inside a hotel. Is it good? Well, it depends on what I choose to put on my plate but to be honest, it’s really hard to eat healthy especially when all the fatty and sweet choices are screaming on the buffet table.
I’m not getting any younger and I still have so many places on my bucket list. Having said that, In order to achieve my goals, I need to stay healthy. Two days before I left for my Japan Cruise last month, I can barely walk due to joint pains in my ankle. My cholesterol level and URIC Acid was a little bit high according to my recent blood test and that made me think that the pain I’m experiencing is because of gout. True enough, after consulting a doctor, I was given prescription medicines for gout.
I had to learn my lesson literally the hard way. Having gout is probably the most painful experience I’ve ever had. It’s even more painful that my recent break up hahaha. I even skipped a City tour during my recent Japan trip due to a gout attack. But my Doctor was right, with the right food and help of gout meds, the pain will go away in as fast as two days. True enough, I avoided all the delicious food during lunch and dinner and ate fruits and lots of oatmeal for breakfast.
On my third day, I was able to join the walking tour again as if nothing happened. I discovered that healthy food can also taste good just like my new favorite ready to eat Quaker Oatmeal. Eating a bowl of oats is not just healthy, it also boosts your productivity since it has the right amount of protein which helps maintain and build body tissues and carbohydrates which provide fuel and energy for every day’s activities.
It has also been proven that a breakfast rich in oats gives you a greater degree of satiety or fullness, helping lessen the likelihood of your consuming those unhealthy snacks. Quaker Oats offers various options that are easy to prepare and extremely convenient to help you meet your daily whole grain and fiber needs.
