Dr. McDougall’s Thick Cut Organic Oatmeal with Milled Flax

by Anne Paddock

There are few cereals in the supermarket that contain no added sugar or salt and there are only a handful of cereals that contain two organic ingredients:  gluten-free thick cut old-fashioned rolled oats and milled flax seeds. Of course, these two ingredients can be purchased separately and mixed together (make sure to store milled flax seed in the refrigerator to prevent spoilage) but when time is a factor, consider Dr. McDougall’s Right Foods Milled Flax No Sugar No Salt Thick Cut Organic Old Fashioned Oatmeal (that’s a mouthful) for a nutritious and delicious  breakfast cereal.

Packed with organic nutrients “to feed your body and soul,” Dr. McDougall’s Right Foods Milled Flax No Sugar No Salt Thick Cut Organic Old Fashioned Oatmeal has milled flax seeds rather than whole flax seeds to give your body “a power packed source of ALA Omega 3’s and fiber.” Each single serving cereal packet contains 120 calories, 4 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, 3 gras of fat, and no grams of sugar, sodium, or cholesterol.

A hearty breakfast cereal inspired by the thought of stove top cooking, Dr. McDougall’s oatmeal can be cooked with water or your favorite non-dairy milk. Simply bring 2/3 of a cup of liquid to a boil and empty the packet contents into the pan. Reduce the heat to low and cook for about 2-3 minutes (note:  the package directions call for 5 minutes but 2-3 minutes of cooking produces a perfectly cooked hot cereal). Pour the oatmeal into a bowl and top with cinnamon, berries, diced or cut fruit, dried fruit, seeds, and/or nuts. But, also know that the cereal can be made with a cold or lukewarm liquid, allowed to sit for 5 minutes, and then enjoyed as is (similar to a muesli) with your favorite additions.

Each 6.7 ounce box contains 6 single serving packets (32 grams each) that can easily be taken on-the-go for a super nutritious hot breakfast when traveling. Priced at about $4 per box, the cereal can be purchased at Whole Foods Markets, Walmart, health food stores, grocery stores nationwide, and on-line through the company’s website:  www.shop.rightfoods.com or www.plummarket.com.
