McDonald’s now offers oatmeal in its latest attempt to offer seemingly more nutritious options. Unfortunately, McDonald’s version of oatmeal contains a laundry list of not-so-natural ingredients and has more sugar than a Snickers bar and nearly the same calories as an Egg McMuffin. You can read more details in New York Times article, “How to Make Oatmeal… Wrong.”
While cooking oatmeal at home is probably your best option, Caribou Coffee offers a version better than McDonald’s. If you order the classic 7-grain oatmeal with skim milk, you get more fiber and protein and less fat than Mickey D’s. Also, the ingredients are things found in a kitchen rather than a lab. The specifics can be found on Caribou’s website.
