I don’t know about you, but when I wake up in the morning, I’m starving. I’m definitely a breakfast-kind-of-gal. Whenever I meet someone who says they skip breakfast, I’m always so surprised! My body needs food after 7+ hours of sleeping… pronto!
Not only do I want to eat the minute I wake up, but I usually don’t have time to sit around and make an elaborate meal. I am a mom (‘nuff said, right?!) and the mornings are busy (my entire day/week/life is busy)!
I do my fair share of cooking, don’t get me wrong. I chop fresh, organic vegetables at lunch for salads, I make home-made dinners most nights of the week, and I love to bake… But with breakfast, I’m hungry, it’s early, I’m still trying to wake up, and something quick, easy, but delicious, is just much more appealing.
One of my favorite gluten free newest-finds is Bakery on Main’s Gluten-Free Instant Oatmeal. You want fast? You can’t get much faster than instant oatmeal. Pour hot water over oatmeal or pop in the microwave for a minute and enjoy. It may be simple, but boring it is not. Bakery on Main’s GF Instant Oatmeal is tasty! It comes in three delish flavors: Strawberry Shortcake, Maple Multigrain Muffin, and Apple Pie. I thought I would like the Strawberry Shortcake flavor the best, but honestly, I just can’t pick a favorite. I liked all of them… all three were so yummy!
Don’t expect a super-sweet, instant oatmeal loaded with sugar or artificial flavorings either. Instead Bakery on Main uses real, super-ingredients and spices for a slightly sweet, flavorful, and nutritious meal. Each flavor is packed with good-for-you ingredients, certified gluten free oats, fruit, quinoa, flax meal, even amaranth! The list of other benefits continue: High Fiber, Non GMO, Dairy & Casein Free, Soy Free, Low Sodium, Trans Fat Free, Cholesterol Free, and of course, it is Gluten Free.
Sprinkle a few walnuts or pecans, and some fresh fruit on top of these gourmet flavors (though I liked my oatmeal plain too) and you’ve got yourself a pretty fabulous breakfast. Warm, yummy… a perfect breakfast choice this fall and winter. You can buy Bakery on Main’s Gluten Free Instant Oatmeal at $5.99 for10.5 oz. box of 6 packets online or in stores around November 1, 2011.
Now there is no excuse for skipping breakfast, my friends!
