Not eating breakfast because you feel like you just don’t have the time? Well that excuse isn’t going to fly anymore! This Vegan Slow-Cooker Banana Walnut Oatmeal is the kind of breakfast you make the night before.

That’s right, pull out your slow-cooker and get this easy breakfast going before you go to bed. Eating breakfast is integral for living a healthy life. If you feel as though you’re not hungry in the morning, it’s probably because your metabolism is working right. Even if it’s just a piece of fruit, you should put something in your stomach within the first 30-60 minutes of being awake.

Oatmeal is one of those breakfast staples that is easy to make and great for the body. Oatmeal contains soluble fiber which stays in the stomach longer and helps you feel fuller, longer. This can prevent overeating later on in the day, which can help you maintain your weight.

Oatmeal also contains a specific type of fiber known as beta-glucan. Numerous studies have proven the beneficial effects of this special fiber on cholesterol levels. Just three grams of soluble oat fiber per day (the amount found in one bowl of oatmeal) typically lowers total cholesterol by 8-23%. Lowering high cholesterol levels can therefore significantly reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke.

Eating just a half cup of oatmeal a day is enough to reap the many health benefits of the fiber it contains.
