review Modern Oats

Written by: Marquardt Chick

all oats

I was never a “breakfast” person. I was among the estimated 31 million Americans that skip the most important meal of the day. Breakfast provides energy to keep you going through the day and can help maintain a balanced diet. So many of us aren’t hungry or simply don’t have the time with our busy schedules to eat in the morning. I didn’t start my day with breakfast until I got pregnant, then skipping breakfast wasn’t an option. I was hungry in the morning and now that I wasn’t just eating for myself I was growing a human and needed something that would fill me up and provide the nutrients I needed for my growing baby. After having my daughter making sure I ate in the morning became so important since I was still 100% providing the nutrients for my child while balancing my new role as a mom. Convenience became key to what I ate in the morning. I wish I had discovered Modern Oats in those first few weeks of motherhood.

This Mamas Experience

After reading articles like this Ultimate Baby Led Weaning Guide, I decided led weaning would be the right option for my daughter. As my daughter hit eight months my world took a turn as my mother needed major heart surgery. This led to a ton of stress as well as many hours away from my daughter. As any nursing mother knows this can lead to a dramatic decrease in milk supply. That’s when oatmeal became an everyday staple for me. Oatmeal has so many health benefits such as lowers cholesterol, it’s high in fiber which is hearth healthy and can reduce the risk of high blood pressure. Oatmeal is full of antioxidants and can boost your immune system. After doing my research, oatmeal is recommended as a way to increase a nursing mother’s milk supply. It boosts your iron levels and also has a calming effect and increases relaxation. Taking this into consideration, I made sure in include oatmeal as one of my meals every day. This sounds great in theory, but let’s be honest; oatmeal everyday can be so boring. That’s when I found Modern Oats. They have eight different flavors that I didn’t have to eat the same oatmeal day after day. Although I’m not going to lie, the Coconut Almond is my favorite and I can eat it every day. Every cup is jam packed with flavor and filling enough to be its own meal. I love that they are individually packaged, making it really convenient to eat at home or to take with you.
Each cup also has a recipe to turn your oatmeal into cookies, making breakfast or just a health snack even easier. Modern Oats has many recipes listed on their website and encourages you to create your own recipes. I got creative and made Carrot & Apple Cookies. Not only are these easy to make, they are also a great food option for my daughter since she can easily hold them herself.
