Which Oatmeal is Best?
Quaker is the staple. The company produces a good product with a consistent flavor and
texture. This oatmeal lives up to its mascot, projecting the values of "honesty, integrity, purity,
and strength." Quakers are a branch of the Anabaptist Church. It began in England in the late 1600s,
within social discontent for the established church and the execution of the king. George Fox, the
main founder of Quakerism, was sure it was possible to have a direct relationship with Jesus without
priests. One important variation between Quakers and Protestants is the idea that God's word is in
scripture; instead, Quakers believe Jesus is the Word. Okay, school lesson over.
If you are looking to liberate those taste buds and vary which oatmeals you eat, give Mom's Best
a chance. Mom's Best is family owned and strives to deliver a natural product. This is an excellent
oatmeal with a deeper, nuttier flavor. "Made from whole grain oats for a healthy and delicious
breakfast cereal. Breakfast cereal is all we make. We use only the highest quality ingredients. There’s
nothing artificial, no added saturated fat or hydrogenated oils, no high fructose corn syrup."
Oatmeal is a very useful grain. The slow cooked oatmeal is best for nutrition, although quick
oats can be a healthier choice for breakfast than many other options. Even better...late night oatmeal.
