Eating breakfast away from home can be a huge challenge for anyone eating gluten free. Breakfast is a gluten minefield – I’ve even heard of pancake batter being stirred into eggs! Crazy. When it comes to hotel breakfasts, I like to come prepared. They are nearly always buffets, and I generally only feel safe with yogurt. But yogurt is not exactly a balanced breakfast.
Enter Glutenfreeda Instant Oatmeal. I bought a variety pack recently, and grabbed a couple packets before leaving for my recent trip to NC to finish moving.
All you have to do is add some boiling water, let it sit for 2 minutes, and you have a hearty bowl of oatmeal!
I am not a huge instant oatmeal fan, but I was pretty impressed with this one. It had a nice chewy texture, and the flavor was not too sweet or fake like many instant varieties. So far I’ve only had the apple cinnamon, so I can’t speak to the other flavors yet, but I really liked the apple – it even had pieces of dried apple in it for an extra element of texture.
That bowl of oatmeal made my fruit and yogurt breakfast at the hotel a lot more substantial and lasting!
