What is the recommended amount of oatmeal we should eat per day?
I see at: http://www.drgourmet.com/askdrgourmet/oatmeal-raw.shtml how
much oats we should not consume. What I don’t see there is what is the
recommended amount is per day. Any ideas?
Dr. Gourmet Says...
The rule of thumb for a serving of oatmeal is 1/2 cup before cooking. That's
about 150 calories and 4 grams of fiber.
