If you’re planning a pot of oatmeal for breakfast, pause to consider this. Your usual rolled oats provide plenty of fiber, protein, B vitamins and iron. But if you swap in oat bran, you’ll get even more of each – plus fewer fat grams – per serving. Cooked just like oatmeal (boiled on the stove), oat bran has a taste similar to its whole-grain cousin, but it’s less sticky and mushy, earning it big bonus points for satisfying anyone who’s picky about texture. Stir in some fresh lemon juice, a splash of vanilla and a handful of raspberries, and you’ve got a morning meal with endless appeal.
