Oats are packed with a whole range of B vitamins, and these nutrients are essential for cutting stress and boosting energy levels by metabolizing carbohydrates. The copious amounts of fiber in oats help to keep their glycemic index down, too. The upshot is that oatmeal delivers reliable, long-lasting energy throughout your day instead of a short-term spike that brings a nasty crash along with it.

Make sure you choose oatmeal products that are packed with whole grains and deliver high fiber content. You'll get better results (and better stores of energy) by using natural, old-fashioned varieties of oatmeal rather than the instant stuff (get creative with your own choice of sweeteners).
