Default Store bought low-carb hot cereal

I found a store bought instant hot cereal that I am quite enjoying and figured I may not be the only person out there who isn't up to making something like this herself!

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00EZ9GUPG

I usually eat the recommended serving of 1/3 cup but when I'm really hungry, I'll double it. It comes in at 1.5g net carbs and seems to do okay by me.

I add less water than they recommend to get the texture closer to how I used to like my oats. Then make up for it with extra butter and a dollop of DaVinci caramel flavoring.

Good question - I wonder that myself

It's right now in the pantry, and I'm with houseguest and have been dishing up omelets for breakfast. Later this week I'll try it and report back.

Finally broke open the package this morning: it works! I confess to missing the brown sugar I used to put on hot cereal/oatmeal - brown sugar and milk - but used butter for my dairy and blueberries for some sweet.

This is great! What a relief to have something in the pantry that can give me a filling breakfast in just a few minutes.

Thanks Daytona!

I have imitated brown sugar flavor by combining vanilla and my English Toffee flavoring (by LorAnnOil - which I got from Netrition .com)

I was a perfect copycat and did the same.

Am using water/cream 50/50 vs water - and that has helped a lot. Makes it creamier (well duh) and with a handful of blueberries it's now sweet enough for me.

Am really loving this quick, easy breakfast - or lunch ...
