Old-Fashioned Oatmeal with Apples, Cinnamon and Walnuts
This is one of Dr. Perricone’s recipes for eating for beauty. Old Fashioned Oatmeal is high in fibers that enhance weight control and discourages cardiovascular disease; the beta-glucan fiber in oats and also barley exerts beneficial anti-glycemic effects as well, helping to stabilize blood sugar.
