My thoughts on Better Oats breakfast Oatmeal. - #OatRevolution #BetterOats

Breakfast is sometimes a challenge for me. Mornings usually have 10 things happening all at once in our household. It becomes a juggling act for me. Getting two kids and myself washed-up, teeth brushed, dressed, eyeglasses on and taking care of any unexpected delays leaves little time for me. By the time breakfast needs to be on the table, I am tired from the morning.  On a good day I run out with food in one hand and the kids on the other.  Bad days I get no breakfast, because I was busy making sure my family was feed and ready. So when I was offered to try a quick healthy answer for breakfast, I accepted.

A few weeks ago I received the quick healthy answer in the mail.  A box from BetterOats with their product of Steel cut Oats and Flax Seed. At first I was very interested in tasting it, because a nutritionist had mentioned that a good breakfast with Steel cut Oats and Flax Seed was great for my health. But fear kept me from opening the box for a week. The box sat on the counter and every day I would look at it.  The box looked extremely healthy and I was afraid it would taste funny. I use to think healthy meant giving up taste. Until one day I reached for it. I opened the box and to my surprise it looked like regular oatmeal. In two minutes I had a delicious breakfast for me and the kids. It turns out I love Steel Cut Oats with Flax Seed and so does my family. It was the easiest meal preparation with great taste and lots of whole grain value.  
It's been several weeks now and it has become a regular item on our breakfast menu. One pouch is one serving of only 140 calories. It has become a favorite food of mine and sometimes I change it up a little.  I get fancy and add other ingredients such as almonds, raisins, honey, banana, walnuts, cranberries, strawberries or peaches. This usually keeps me full until lunch time without dropping my sugar level, which is great for my health. This has become my baby step to eating healthier in the mornings. Thank you BetterOats for helping me take baby steps to an easier morning with healthy food.

Stores that carry this item are Walmart, Target and Albertson's.
