Oatmeal + Orange Juice Oatmeal & Orange Juice
A study from the Antioxidants Research Lab at the USDA shows that drinking vitamin C-rich orange juice while eating a bowl of real oatmeal (read: not processed) cleans your arteries and prevents heart attacks with two times as much efficacy as if you were to ingest either breakfast staple alone.
