I have never been a big fan of oatmeal. I’m a foodie that likes food to look, well um er, edible. Something about oatmeal and the consistency just turned me off from the start. It was too mushy looking. As a child, it was a part of our breakfast menu and I wasn’t able to finish it. I guess you could blame that on the texture and the bland taste. Whatever it was, it was not my favourite breakfast item.
After we got married, I found out that my husband loves oatmeal. So when grocery shopping I bought some for him. But I’d never eat it! On days when we were out together, I’d be starving by 11am and he’d be fine. The difference? As he says, the oatmeal “sticks” to you. But I couldn’t bring myself to eat it. I tried the store brands that had TONS of sugar in it. It was ok, but the sugar just kind of messed with my head. I gave up on it – again.
While engaging in my obsession hobby of reading blogs, low and behold I stumbled upon a product called Mad Hectic Oatmeal.
I was skeptical at first, because let’s be honest, it’s a bit more pricey than your regular brand in the grocery store. But then I did a rundown of the nutrition content and I was floored! It contains organic oats, whey protein and flax! It’s some really good stuff in there. So I broke down and ordered some. It was the best decision ever. They have tons of flavours. My favourite is the French Chocolate and my husband loves the strawberry pecan. Both are super tasty. After trying this brand, I officially LOVE oatmeal. And the mega amount of protein in one serving really keeps me feeling full throughout the morning. The taste is delicious and the look of it doesn’t bother me! Imagine that!
I highly recommend the product. I am a repeat buyer. Give it a shot and see what you think!
