July is National Blueberry Month, since it is peak blueberry season. I love blueberries, they are even better than strawberries as far as I am concerned.Â Of course they are very healthy too, and I regularly see them on lists of â€œsuperfoodsâ€ since they are high in antioxidants and many vitamins.Â I am planning to take the kids blueberry picking next week, and if you have some locally you should plan an outing too.Â Blueberries are much easier to pick than strawberries since they are on taller bushes, and they are super simple to freeze too.
To help my family celebrate National Blueberry month Better Oats sent me some of their Blueberry Muffin oatmeal.Â Oatmeal is one of my familyâ€™s favorite breakfast foods.Â I just counted, and we currently have 12 boxes of instant oatmeal in the pantry, because everyone likes different flavors!Â Oatmeal is healthy, quick and easy.Â I first tried Better Oats oatmeal about a year ago, and it is my favorite brand of instant oatmeal.
The texture of the oatmeal is much thicker than other instant oatmeal I have tried.Â I also love the wide variety of flavors.Â Since we eat oatmeal almost every day, we like to change up the flavors, because eating apple cinnamon all the time gets boring (unless you my daughter Eleanor, who goes through 3 boxes of apple cinnamon oatmeal every week.)Â In addition to standards like apple cinnamon and maple brown sugar, Better Oats also has flavors like Chai Spiced,Â Cinnamon Plum Spiced,Â and Lavish Dark Chocolate Oatmeal.Â Â The Blueberry Muffin flavor is delicious, and you can really taste the blueberries.Â Better Oats uses real, whole blueberries in the oatmeal, and after you microwave it they are nice and plum and not dried out.Â It takes 2 minutes to make in the microwave, and the package is designed to let you measure the water right in it, so you donâ€™t even have to find a measuring cup.
Just in case your pantry isnâ€™t as well stocked with oatmeal as mine, Better Oats has offered to send a monthâ€™s supply (one case) of oatmeal to one of my readers.Â I believe it will have a variety of flavors, but hopefully it will include the Blueberry.
