Nourishing Bites: Nature's Path Oatmeal

Inspired by the lovely Kirsten of A Karma Project, who recently posted some of the foods she can't live without, I've decided to share a few of my favorite go-to foods with you, my dear readers.  I'll be sharing one food item each day this week, with a focus on foods that are healthful yet convenient.  While I love making meals from scratch - and do so quite often - I also appreciate the time and effort I save by using pre-packaged options (especially when packaged minimally or in environmentally friendly ways).   

Nature's Path Oatmeal
Growing up, I was never a big oatmeal person.  However, in recent years I have begun to appreciate this hearty, healthy whole grain.  (I've heard your taste buds change every seven years, so maybe that has something to do with it.)  I've found that a bowl of oatmeal in the morning keeps me full until lunchtime, and provides a steady dose of calm energy throughout the day.  There are a few reasons why I gravitate the Nature's Path brand.  Firstly, they offer a Flax Plus version, which helps provide those essential Omega 3 fatty acids.  Secondly, it's certified organic and the company's founders are active in advocating for organic farming and a more sustainable food system.  And last, but not least, it has the best texture and taste of comparable products that I've tried.  Texture-wise, it's smooth but not mushy and the taste is just slightly sweet but not cloying at all.  Sometimes I will top it off with chopped fruit, almond slivers, or a drizzle of agave nectar, 
but it's truly satisfying on its own.


Have you tried Nature's Path oatmeal? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

I haven't tried their oatmeal, but I love some of their cereals. I'm going to have to look for it next time I'm at Whole Foods! xoxo.

I absolutely loved their oatmeal before going gluten free. My favourite was the apple cinnamon topped with some extra freshly cut apples.

I need to remember to not come to your blog hungry this week. That oatmeal sounds great, I think I need to give it a try!
