Mornings are essential to making it through the day. By eating the right foods at the start, you’re body is primed for action; your metabolism speeds up and your body is ready to consume foods of a similar nutrition level throughout the rest of the day. Start off hungry or on the wrong foot and you can go downhill…fast! This is something I’ve learned and really responded to lately. But, it’s an important lesson for everyone.
That’s why I was so excited when I heard about MyOatmeal.com. Before you start to think that healthy oatmeal is plain old healthy oatmeal and there’s not a lot of room to improve, think again. Solid nutrition doesn’t have to be boring, and this company brings this idea to life in big ways.
By allowing customers to customize their own flavors, MyOatmeal.com takes mornings to a whole new level. Visitors are able to customize:
- Package size: 1 lb, 2.25 lb or 4lb
- Oat types: quick rolled instant, 5 grain rolled oats & flax, steel cut whole oats, signature smash blend, gluten free quick oats (a must in my house!) and organic, gluten free rolled oats
- Flavoring: think of the most detailed coffee shop flavor list and then expand it – creme brulee, cake, smores and so many more
- Fruits: 18 options!
- Nuts and seeds: everything from chia and flax seeds to powdered peanut butter and almonds – big nutritional value
- Sweeteners: brown cane to monk fruit, any taste bud can be satisfied.
- Shipping options: ongoing, one time, etc.
Bottom line: there are over 2 million flavor combinations that can be created. Does it get better than this?
I didn’t think so; which is why I had to give it a try.
I created my blends of choice online and couldn’t wait for them to arrive (which they did, quickly!). From there, I couldn’t wait to jump in, which is why our family had oatmeal for dinner that night :).
My first flavor? Caramel Apple Cheesecake (named by me).
I was excited, check out the nutritional information above, which I knew ahead of time, since it was clearly displayed during the online creation process.
The smell upon opening the bag was wonderful and I could see the apple chunks I’d ordered easily.
- Gluten free quick oats
- Dulce de Leche and Cheesecake flavors
- Light brown sugar
- Dried apples
The verdict? Delicious.
I mixed 1/4 cup oatmeal with 1/2 cup almond milk (this is my go-to for oatmeal, the husband and kids used water per the package directions). It was a hit. The whole family enjoyed it and no additional flavors or sugars were needed. It was filling and has become our go-to. From a simple, fun creation process to a final product that exceeded expectations, I expect to be a loyal myoatmeal.com customer for a long time.
