This vegetable is high in fiber and very low in calories. It is considered one of the healthiest foods you could ever eat. (Why is broccoli considered on of the healthiest foods?)
If you tend to get cravings in the morning oatmeal is an excellent craving-crushing food. Real oatmeal and not instant oatmeal is loaded with fiber and can even have up to 6gms of protein per serving.
