Product Review – Better Oats Oatmeal

We all know oatmeal is a great way to start your day.  It’s a filling whole grain, packed with fiber, manganese, zinc and other goodness.  Eating oats can help prevent heart disease by lowering cholesterol and help stabilize your blood sugars for the rest of the day. 

Better Oats Oatmeal has made it easy for those “on-the-go,” “out-the-door” kind of people. Easy packaging, portion controlled and lots of different flavors to choose from RAW to Maple and Brown Sugar.

Ingredients:
100% Whole Grain Oats
Naturally firm and hearty. Never over-processed and never mushy.
Real pieces of fruit
You always know what you’re getting with our fruit—real apples, peaches and strawberries. Just for fun, check the ingredients on your old oatmeal brand. Most of the strawberry oatmeal sold uses reconstituted apple bits, flavored and dyed to seem like strawberries. Same with peaches. Don’t be fooled by imposter fruits!
Real dark chocolate morsels
If you love chocolate, you’ll have to try our Lavish Dark Chocolate oatmeal. You won’t want it just for breakfast.
Thick, quick and old-fashioned oats
All the hearty and natural texture but still fast and microwavable.

My favorite is the RAW Bare as it is unsweetened and:

  • USDA Organic
  • 41 grams of whole grains per serving
  • 200 mg of ALA Omega-3 per serving
  • Organic whole grains: Oats, Barley, Quinoa, Rye, Wheat
  • Organic whole flaxseeds
  • Good source of Fiber
But for a sweet treat (not at breakfast) I do like to indulge is a tasty yet nutritious snack such as:
Lavish Dark Chocolate or Strawberries and Cream
I love that there is flaxseed included in the packets (this should always be in your oatmeal) however I would like to see this as ground flaxseed rather than whole seeds.  Ground flaxseed is absorbed better by your body.

Until next time…
