Having breakfast every morning is super important. For some people it may be hard because they don’t feel hungry…I do not have that problem 😉 I wake up hungry. Really hungry. Just feed me and give me coffee and I am good to go.
Today I am sharing with you one of my new favorite breakfast foods! Oatmeal from Straw Propeller Gourmet Foods. I discovered these yummy oatmeal cups at a local coffee shop and was fortunate enough to receive some samples to try out from Kari at Straw Propeller! I had them for the first time a couple of months ago and have been hooked since. No joke.
Like I said, I always wake up hungry. However, on work days I am not the type to cook up some eggs or any kind of fancy breakfast. I just don’t have time for that. I am on the go, I like my sleep, and I like things that I can just grab and go, which is one of the reasons why I love these oatmeal cups so much! There is nothing to it, grab it, pour water and tada, delicious food!
Okay so here is a little background on this company. It is a local woman-owned company (girl power anyone?!) from Redmond, Oregon that was founded in 2011 by Patsy Bartelson, RN and stay at home mom. She created these healthy products in response to having children with food allergies, so all of their products are made with certified gluten-free oats, non-GMO ingredients. How awesome is that? You all know I’ve been trying to eat healthy and it doesn’t getting any healthier than this.
My favorite flavor so far has been the Maple Oats, it literally only has 3 ingredients (Certified Gluten Free Rolled Oats, Organic Maple Sugar, Sea Salt). It is so delicious! Usually I will just have them by themselves, but if I am feeling fancy or extra hungry I will add some almonds, berries, or nuts. What I love is that they seriously keep me full all morning. So that helps me stay on track with my healthy eating. I have noticed that when I start my day with a healthy meal, it will usually carry on throughout the day. They carry many different flavors some of them already have fruit in them, so there is no fuss.
So how can you get your hands of these bad boys? You can order online here, they have combo packs, gift packets, and an adventure packet. They are also sold at many stores click here to see a full list. Something super exciting…they are coming out with a savory line that is set to be released around May 1st! I cannot wait, hope to try them out and let you guys know what I think about them.
I honestly believe that eating healthy is just as important, if not more, than working out in order to be healthy and lose weight. So having this for breakfast in the mornings, something quick, yummy, and healthy is a no brainer for me.
