I’ll let you in on a little secret. I eat oats everyday for breakfast…. and I have been for over a year. 🙂 I love oats and its one of the only breakfast type foods that my stomach can handle now. But eating plain oats for so long can get a little boring.
So when I had the opportunity from Fit Approach to review a bag of oatmeal from MyOatmeal.com I jumped at the chance. My Oatmeal is a family run company that lets you customize your organic oatmeal every step of the way. Their oatmeal is free of preservatives, artificial flavors or dyes, and absolutely delicious. They offer customizable PB Lean in addition to oats.
Ordering my bag of oatmeal was extremely easy. (My Oatmeal offers premade mixes as well) They offer 3 sizes of bags, 6 types of oats including gluten free (yay!), and a large variety of flavors, fruits, nuts & seeds, and sweeteners. Once you are finished deciding on a mix, you get choose a name for your mix. I love how this oatmeal is truly my own! The website also includes a Nutrition Facts bar on the side which changes automatically depending on how you build your custom blend. A great feature if you are tracking your macros!!
I decided that since I am unable to eat cake for my birthday next week (food allergies), I was going to make a birthday oatmeal mix to enjoy throughout the month. There were so many options but I ended up choosing the medium size with gluten free oats, red velvet cake and sweet icing flavors with brown cane sugar as a sweetener. I named it “Dirty 30 Birthday Mix” ;), placed my order, and off it went to the kitchen to be made. The process went very fast and I received my bag within a few days of ordering.
When I received my MyOatmeal package I was surprised by how much oatmeal was in a medium size (and was also surprised that they included an extra small bag of oatmeal)!! I literally ripped it open right then to try some!
Even though it looks like plain oatmeal, it smelled amazing. I added some water and coconut milk, microwaved for a few minutes, and dug right in. It tasted delicious. The flavors were more intense than I expected (in a good way, it actually tasted like cake with icing!). Some days I add fruit to the mix but even without the fruit and it tastes great. I am very happy to be feeding my body with oatmeal that is free of processed junk and still tasty. It is well worth the price of the product. I don’t know how I had eaten plain oatmeal for so long now that I’ve tried MyOatmeal.com. I can’t wait to experiment and use My Oatmeal birthday mix in other recipes.
