so I know your not suppose to eat instant oatmeal, but i thought the ingredients in the regular quakers oatmeal packs seemed pretty safe 

 

 

Ingredients

WHOLE GRAIN ROLLED OATS (WITH OAT BRAN), SALT, GUAR GUM, CALCIUM CARBONATE (THICKENER).

 

What do you think?

Oats are kewl if you don't have a particular type of dysbiosis in which bad bacteria feed on starch

 

But that's a pretty specific situation

The ingredients are shockingly not that bad... lol wow.

 

But, still, instant oatmeal is still "refined/processed."   Sure it might not be bad, but it's also not so great.

 

You can get a big bag of oats for cheap too - with all the good stuff in it.

 

Plussssssss......... when you use real oats, you don't use the microwave.  Your food is more "alive". lol

 

I guess you could keep eating instant oatmeal, but if you start developing problems, I would take a closer look at it because again, it is not a "natural" food.
