The lowdown on oatmeal
Oats are full of B vitamins, which help turn carbohydrates into energy your body can use. In addition, oats are high in dietary fiber, which slows down digestion. So, the energy from those carbohydrates is released slowly and steadily into your bloodstream, keeping your blood sugar levels even for a long period of time, thereby eliminating energy dips and sluggish, sleepy periods during the day.

Oatmeal could be the perfect thing to have in the morning to kick off your longest shift.

Cynthia Dusseault
Cynthia Dusseault is a professional freelance writer with both a health and an education background. A former medical radiation technologist and elementary school teacher, she realized that no matter what she did, she was drawn to any task that involved writing, so she decided, over a decade ago, to write full-time. Since then, she has written for a variety of magazines and websites including Nursing PRN, National Review of Medicine, University Affairs, Your Health, Education Leaders Today, Today's Parent, Children's Playmate, and many more. She has written about topics such as asthma, genital herpes, circumcision, teleradiology, body art, learning disabilities and exercise trends, and she absolutely adores the fact that writing—particularly doing the research for the articles she writes—makes her a lifelong learner.
