I don’t normally write about what I eat for breakfast but having discovered instant gluten free oats in the US – little ready measured packets to which you just add hot water (unless you like yours with cream and sugar etc….) and having found them in the UK I thought I’d pass it along just how good these are.
Oats are good for you in lots of different ways – read Why Oats are Good for You from The Guardian – and having switched from eggs to oats recently for breakfast I don’t think I could go back.
Particularly for travelling the little packets by Bakery on Main are brilliant, just tip them into a bowl, pour on very hot/boiling water and stir. Then you can add, as I do, a few hazelnuts and Montmorency Dried Tart Cherries, or the aforesaid cream/milk and sugar. I packed my hazelnuts and cherries in a double small zip topped clear bag.
If all this sounds like rather a lot of organisation think of it this way. If, like me, you want to steer clear of all the high carb breakfast stuff, stay on a reasonably healthy diet whilst travelling – in some ways at least – and save money on breakfast for the wine at dinner this is a perfect answer.
