Qi’a™ Superfood Cinnamon Pumpkin Seed Oatmeal
Oatmeal is not one of those sexy breakfast foods that most people get excited about. Some devotees, like my husband, add fresh fruit, maple syrup, dried fruit, and nuts to make it palatable (he’s not a big oatmeal fan) while others simply sprinkle a bit of cinnamon or brown sugar and a spoonful of walnuts or pecans to add some crunchy texture to a breakfast staple.
But, there is a third option: Qi’a™ (pronounced Kee-ah) Superfood Cinnamon Pumpkin Seed Oatmeal (gluten-free): a blend of seven organic ingredients: rolled oats, buckwheat groats, pumpkin seeds, inulin (a natural fiber and sweetener derived from the root of plants, often chicory), chia seeds, hemp seeds, and cinnamon. That’s it. No added refined sugars, flavors, preservatives, and no artificial colors or flavors.
Qi’a™ Superfood Cinnamon Pumpkin Seed Oatmeal is sold in individual 38 gram (1.3 ounces) single serve packets with 6 packets to a box. Simply empty the packet into a bowl and add 1/2-3/4 cup of boiling water (the lesser amount for a thicker oatmeal) and stir. Allow the oatmeal to sit for about 2 minutes and then enjoy as is or add some diced fruit and nuts.
Each box of Qi’a™ Superfood Cinnamon Pumpkin Seed Oatmeal sells for about $5 and can be purchased at grocery stores nationwide or on-line at www.vitacost.com.
