For example, I was just at the store and took a look at a brand of "heart-healthy" instant
oatmeal (their claim), the "Maple and Brown Sugar" flavor.
First, there is no maple in it. There is also no brown sugar in it. Instead, it's packed with
artificial ingredients, colors, and flavors. It's also packed with regular sugar and I've even
seen some varieties with the "flavor" gel packets full of high fructose corn syrup...talk
about royally screwing up oatmeal!
This product also has a significantly higher glycemic index than regular "old fashioned
oatmeal" due to it's instant nature where it's been pre-cooked via high-heat processing.
This high heat processing also robs the oatmeal of many important vitamins and
minerals, making it an overall less nutritious product.
So, if you're going to go with oatmeal, please stay away from the instant, processed,
Instead, the best choice is plain ol' steel cut oats. While they take a few extra minutes
to cook, it's certainly worth it for the lower glycemic index, extra fiber, and greater
vitamin and mineral content...all while avoiding all that processed garbage.
Steel cut oats will also leave you feeling fuller, longer, and you'll probably find that you
enjoy the more firm texture and nuttier flavor a LOT more than mushy instant oatmeal
