ok my BFL friends help - there are mornings when i cant make regular oatmeal, so i have to go to the instant - i found Oat fit with flax here is the nutrition facts
is this an ok choice?
1/2 cup serving (one pouch)
sodium 220 mg,
dietary fiber 3 grams
, total carb 18g,
Are you mixing in protein powder with your oatmeal? If not, you need a source of protein to make it a complete meal. I use some variation of Whey protein from Sam's club.
skbt the nutrition that looks fine to me.
The only thing I would comment on is the portion size. If a 1/2 cup size is the same size as your clenched fist, then thats fine.
For me, my clenched fist is the same size as a full cup, so I have a full cup of oats for breakfast,
Also, don't forget your "palm sized" protein portion like Linsey points out :-)
Oatmeal is one of many foods that can't easily and reasonably be done by palm/fist, or in this case, fist. Go by grams of carbs. At 150 pounds, your portion should be about 25 grams fo carb. If higher, more, etc. I wouldn't worry about being a tad low, but if your portion is a 1/2 cup and you have a full, then that's a huge difference.
ok thanks - i usually microwave some eggs with it or take a hard boil egg as my extra protein. not quite use to that protein powder/whey taste but i am trying ha ha - thanks for all the info you guys
