The article was really interesting and worth reading if you are interested in healthy diet information, and it also reminded me that I've been meaning to blog about an additional steel-cut oatmeal made by Amy's that I found at Whole Foods (I blogged previously about a yummy steel-cut oatmeal I found at Trader Joe's, after learning about the health benefits of steel-cut oatmeal on Oprah which you can read about in my original posting). Since some of you have emailed me to tell me that you don't live near a Trader Joe's (which is very unfortunate), I thought it was worth doing a posting to tell you about this alternate option!
As I mentioned previously, steel-cut oatmeal is delicious and filling, but very time consuming to make. Like with the Trader Joe's version, Amy has created a pre-made frozen version of the oatmeal which you can conveniently make on your own. The serving size is really filling (255g) and the oatmeal is quite tasty. In terms of nutrtition, the oatmeal is dairy free, all natural, and has 220 calories, 3.5 grams of fat, and 5 grams of fiber (so 4 weight watchers points).
Amy's also makes some other breakfast bowls (some have fewer calories, and some are gluten and/or dairy free) that I will blog about later, but you may want to check them out as well (I particularly like the multi-grain one). They all make great low calorie breakfast and low calorie lunch options.
By the way -- there are tons of things that you might want to consider putting in your oatmeal including: low calorie chocolate, frozen bananas, fresh or frozen cherries or blueberries, soy nuts, regular nuts, cinnamon, & honey.
