My Favorite Fast Food


Good ol? oatmeal, a popular go-to for breakfast since way back in the early 1850s, is a true nutritional powerhouse. And it?s not just for breakfast anymore?Oh no!

Chris and I are huge oatmeal fans, and nothing keeps us feeling fuller longer! We often depend on this mealtime lifesaver when we?re on the road or out running errands and need a quick and healthy meal?even on low-carb days. Yes, that?s right. If you’re carb cycling and find yourself totally stuck with no healthy low-carb options available, go for some oatmeal! It?s loaded with complex carbs and fiber, which help you feel fuller longer and keep those blood sugar levels steady. And that fiber has so many other really important health benefits too! It?s a total win-win!

We love Starbucks? oatmeal, and with a Starbucks on pretty much every corner, in every airport, and in lots of hotels, it can be a great way to start the day?or save the day! My favorite way to enjoy my Starbucks? oatmeal is to add two Stevia packets (which I keep in my purse or diaper bag), and half a package each of the dried fruit and nuts that come with each cup of oatmeal. It is 250 calories of awesomeness 😉

So the next time you?re out and about and your stomach starts growling, try some oatmeal instead of all those other fatty, fast food options. Your tummy?and your scale?will thank you!

  1. I love steel cut oats. 3 cups of water to 1 cup oats, pinch of pink himalayan sea salt, a few cinnamon sticks. Cook overnight on low in the crock pot. YUM!

  2. Thank you for this message! I’ve heard just yesterday that i have to quit eating ( i don’t know how to say it in English but in Holland it’s named Tarwe) It’s in a lot of products. Now i have to eat Speltbread of Oatmeal.

    big hug!! Sandra

  3. i have a severe gluten intolerance so i can’t have oatmeal, what else can u suggest?? i’ve actually been eating gerber’s rice cereal (yes, for babies!) w vanilla almond milk first thing when i’m up. it’s really hard for me to have breakfast, can’t handle all that food. blech! btw- LOVE u guys! =) be blessed.

    1. Depends. What are you putting in it? What are cooking it with water or milk? Should be water. The milk thing is a splurge not an everyday thing. Also don’t use dried fruits if possible they have more sodium than fresh. Stop using brown sugar or maple syrup and try small amounts of honey supplemented with Stevia. Use fruits like strawberries, blueberries, raspberries. Don’t use oranges. As with anything. Sprinkle the fruit don’t kill it with fruit and honey. All of this of course should be consulted with your doctor. I don’t think it is the oatmeal that is making it spike. It is probably something else and it is only a coincidence. Just my.opinion though. I’m not a doc. Good luck and keep trucking.

  4. I am carb cycling and find sometimes when on the go, it’s hard to find something healthy. I usually leave the house prepared, however we all have those days that don’t go as smooth as you’d like. I work at Starbucks and am glad to know that the oatmeal is Powell approved!!!

  5. When I travel (fly or drive long distances) I bring along my own homemade oatmeal packets. That way all you need is a cup of hot water, which you can find almost anywhere, especially in airports! I got stuck in the Denver airport for 14 hours last Christmas and this trick saved my hungry tummy, my blood sugar and my wallet! Great tip!!

  6. alwaysss get that too, I like the Blueberry one with Agave.

    good to know that I am on the right track
