Studies have shown that eating oatmeal every day can help lower cholesterol, but I personally think that's only because the people eating it were replacing the even worse carbs that they normally ate for breakfast. I think a person who normally ate eggs and fruit for breakfast would not see any improvement in their cholesterol by switching to oatmeal.
That's right, I forgot your household is gluten-free. I had temporary memory loss there because every time I go to HEB, I would pass this long section on the back wall of gluten-free products and think of you.
