As a busy mom, I rarely have time to eat a sensible breakfast. Honestly, I am lucky if I have enough time to just grab a Pop-tart. So when Post sent me their new Post Goodness Breakfast Bowls I was ready to give them a try. I like the fact that all of the different flavors have a foundation of slow cooked steel cut oats so it makes them very hearty and makes you fuller longer. The Post Goodness Breakfast Bowls come in four different varieties: Maple & Brown Sugar, Apples & Cinnamon, Maple & Real Bacon, and Real Sausage & Cheddar Cheese. I was sent two flavors to try out; Apples & Cinnamon and Real Sausage & Cheddar Chesse.
The first thing I noticed about the bowls, is that they are portable and very easy to heat up. It only takes 60 seconds and breakfast is ready! This is not only great news for a busy mom, but these would be perfect if you needed something quick to eat at your desk at work. Each bowl has at least 26 grams of whole grains and 8 grams of protein. This will make you feel full and less inclined to snack throughout the morning. We all know how enticing those vending machines can be.
The first flavor I tried was the Apples & Cinnamon. This was more my style because I prefer sweet foods in the morning over savory foods. As I said before, it was super easy to make and only took me about 45 seconds to heat up. I will be honest and say that the bowls do not look very appetizing. I was wary when I took the first bite but it was actually pretty yummy. I am not a huge oatmeal fan so I was surprised that I liked this. It has a very strong flavor of cinnamon and there are little pieces of apple throughout the bowl. I even let my 10 month old have a few bites and she seemed to like it.
The next flavor was the Real Sausage & Cheddar Cheese. I will say that this was not a favorite of mine. It did have a lot of pieces of sausage in the bowl but it just tasted a lot like sausage gravy to me. I couldn’t really taste the oats because the flavor was so strong. I am not a huge fan of sausage anyway so this is probably just a personal preference.
I think that the Post Goodness Breakfast Bowls are a great way to start your morning especially if you are on the go a lot like me. They are quick and will really help fuel your morning. I think they are a great option for a convenient and healthy breakfast. You can find them at your local Walmart and you can even get a $1 off COUPON to use on your next visit.
