Jumpstart Your Day With Quaker

by HEAB on November 15, 2010

Oatmeal of the day…


My breakfast bowl consisted of 1 packet Quaker instant Banana Walnut Hearty Medley + 1/4 cup oat bran cooked in 1 cup water. I then stirred in 1 TBSP butter and a couple spoonfuls of unsweetened shredded coconut. I was a bit nervous to try the banana walnut flavor because as much as I love bananas, I hate that artificial naner taste. However, mixed with the oat bran, I thought this was quite yummy, especially when served with butter and coconut. It tasted like a big bowl of banana bread with no fake banana taste.

Why is HEAB eating instant oatmeal you ask? Well, because I received the following in the mail…


Quaker’s Amazing Morning Kit

The folks at Quaker have teamed up with Biggest Loser fitness trainer Bob Harper in an effort to help America jump start their day and reset their morning. The idea behind the kit is to motivate and encourage positive change, beginning with holistic wellness. An open mind, a healthy body and a positive spirit are some key elements that can help people unlock their true potential. I am in no way connected with Quaker or its parent company, PepsiCo. The kit was a gift, and the kind folks at Quaker would like to offer you one as well. Along with a yoga mat and a copy of Bob’s latest yoga DVD, the kit is filled with a few more goodies, including two flavors of Quaker’s new Hearty Medleys oatmeal. For more information about the campaign, please click here to check out the Quaker Facebook page.

Like I said yesterday, I never buy instant oatmeal as I prefer my oats plain and unsweetened. However, I must say that when added to pancakes or mixed with oat bran, this instant stuff is pretty tasty. Also, I can’t wait to try out the yoga DVD, but my body isn’t quite ready for it yet. Someday soon, I hope. :)

Are you ready to jumpstart your morning? For a chance to win a Quaker Kit of your own, please leave a comment below telling me your favorite part of the morning. Mine is waking up to this…


P.S. If you should win the kit, make sure to hand wash the bowl. I read that after running it through the dishwasher…


Oops – at least I can still read the amazing. 😉
