5. Oats

Oats are an excellent source of soluble fibre, which helps lower blood cholesterol and slows glucose absorption. Eating oats for breakfast can help maintain energy levels for longer and curb appetite.

Oats are an excellent source of B vitamins (great for energy production and stress management) and contain good amounts of zinc, which is important for immune function.
Diet tip: Soak rolled oats overnight in soy milk and apple juice and top with fresh chopped fruit for a refreshing breakfast.
