Country Choice Oatmeal Review

As a breastfeeding mom and runner, I eat a lot of oatmeal. It has been proven that oatmeal can help aid in milk production. I've gotten into the habit of eating it every single morning for breakfast, during the week before I leave for work or before I leave for the long run. When the folks at Country Choice reached out to offer me some samples of oatmeal, I couldn't help but say YES! When I'm making oatmeal, I usually go with the regular old fashioned oats and add my own stuff.

All The Oatmealz!
However when I was sent lots of options from Country Choice, I figured I would give the instant steel cut oats packets a try. Apple spice and maple were the two flavors and they are both delicious! I really like that steel cut oats are a nice break from my usual old fashioned oats. They cook up great in the microwave but make sure you follow the instructions and use a deep bowl. (Speaking from experience, this can lead to a messy microwave...)

Perfect for pre-race fuel or breakfast while breastfeeding. 

I had never heard of this brand before but I definitely enjoyed my free samples! The next time I see them in the store, I will definitely make a purchase. 

Full Disclosure: I was sent these packages of oatmeal for free but I was not compensated in any other way for this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


  1. Thanks for the product review. I eat oatmeal all the time (old fashioned oats). I'll have to check it out.

  2. Oooh I love oatmeal! I'll have to give this brand a try! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

  3. I love steel cut oats. I will be eating more of it once I go back o school.

  4. I can imagine that is a great meal for a busy day at school where you have a strict schedule.

  5. I make a bunch of it on my crockpot. In the morning I just heat it up, add agave or raisins, and eat it as I am planning my day. It is usually filling and this year my lunch is at 11am.
