Both Oat and Nuts are known to be heart healthy foods. Oats are often referred to as power foods since they are full of proteins, fibers, complex carbohydrates and also a source of many vitamins and minerals. Nuts are packed with heart-healthy fats, protein, vitamins, fiber and minerals. They also have L-arginine which makes arteries less prone to blood clots by making them flexible. Nuts are also rich in antioxidants and are a strong anti-inflammatory.  Lastly making it at home gives you the assurance of no adulterants and unhealthy saturated fats.
