Instead of Breadcrumbs, Try Oatmeal

Breadcrumbs add textural flourish to a variety of dishes, but unless you use the whole wheat kind, they're pretty light on nutrition and can be loaded with salt. Give your family a dose of cholesterol-lowering fiber by swapping dry breadcrumbs for oatmeal. You'll be amazed by how easily this versatile, B-vitamin-packed grain moves seamlessly beyond breakfast. Simply pulse whole rolled oats in the food processor (or use smaller, quick-cooking oats) and use them to coat chicken cutlets, bulk up meatloaf, or add crunch to the top of macaroni and cheese.
