How do you feel after eating breakfast?

One of the main reasons I made Todd's Power Oats was to feel better.  I noticed a long time ago that when I eat poorly for breakfast--a bagel, a bowl of cereal, a big breakfast burrito--my body has the same reaction:  that bagel tastes great while I'm eating it, but then about 30 minutes later my energy crashes and I feel crapy.   When that happens, I'm less likely to workout.  I'm less likely to have good focus on the tasks in front of me.  In fact, I'll probably end up looking for another quick snack to give me an energy boost.  And then the cycle repeats!

My mission when I started experimenting in the kitchen 15 years ago was to make something that tasted great while I was eating it, and made me feel BETTER after eating it, instead of worse.
I was chatting yesterday with a new Todd's Power Oats customer.   He said he ate my oats for breakfast 4 days in a row this week, and he was amazed at how each day went.  He noticed that he was not hungry all morning like he usually is, and that when it came time for lunch it was easier for him to pick something healthy like a salad, instead of a greasy burger. Even more amazing was that he was on a business trip and packed the oats in his luggage!  That was the move of a health ninja, because he knew how easy it would be to eat a lot of junk when on the road for work!
I call it steady energy.  The combination of high protein (30 g) and fiber (11g) in Todd's Power Oats is intentionally designed to deliver an steady flow of energy throughout your morning so you can tackle your TO DO list without crashing.  And you'll be in a better state of mind to choose healthy at the other meals you eat later in the day.
Try to notice how you feel after your first meal of the day.  Does it fuel your day, or leave you feeling flat?
Be good to your self!

P.S. The picture above is me climbing the Manitou Incline in Colorado Springs with one of my twin boys in my backpack.  I'm glad I fueled up with my high protein oats that morning because I needed that steady energy to get me up the mountain!
