Oatmeal is one of the healthiest options you can choose for breakfast or a mid-morning meal. Whether you make it from scratch or opt for a healthy pre-packaged solution, this superfood can satisfy your hunger and help you shed some pounds.
We’ll cover the do’s and don’ts below so you can enjoy the most delicious oatmeal yet. Want a hassle option instead? At Mylk Labs, we make healthy oatmeal cups just the way you love it – full of healthy goodness and flavor.
Here are some common oatmeal mistakes to avoid:
1. Adding Too Much Sugar
You can sweeten up oatmeal in various ways, from adding chocolate chips to brown sugar. But by doing so, you will be sacrificing the health benefits of oatmeal for a sweeter taste. Instead of using sugar, why not try unsweetened cocoa powder, cinnamon or fresh fruit? We only use 5g of organic coconut sugar to sweeten our oatmeal so that you can always add, but never take away!
2. Making Your Oatmeal Too Plain
There are so many toppings you can choose from. In fact, the possibilities are endless! The good news is that our Mylk Labs instant oatmeal cups come in a wide array of delicious flavor options, so you never have to eat plain oatmeal again.
3. Not Adding Enough Protein
Although you will have a healthy meal with the standard oats topped with some fruit, it is important to add some protein to make a more complete breakfast meal. Mylk Labs high protein oatmeal cups already contain 6-7g of protein, but you can add more in the form of nut butter, nuts, yogurt, or protein powder.
4. Not Having Enough Healthy Fats
Since oatmeal is naturally low fat, you can add nuts or nut butter, flax, chia, or other seeds. The good news is that our Mylk Labs oatmeal already contains nuts which provide healthy fats which keep you fuller for longer.
5. Adding Dried Fruit Instead of Fresh Fruit
Instead of adding dried fruit to oatmeal, which can include a large amount of sugar, opt for adding some fresh fruit to your meal which also includes more fiber without the excess quantity of sugar. PS. our healthy oatmeal cups use freeze dried fruit as a single ingredient and contains no added sugar.
