Medleys and Musings

We are on the downhill slide to Friday! Yipee!

I tried a new product this morning that I wanted to share. It is Quaker Oatmeal Real Medleys. The flavor I tried was the Summer Berry Oatmeal+

You’ve never seen oatmeal like this. Packed with wholesome multi-grains and chunks of real fruit – sweet strawberries, red delicious raspberries, and plump whole blueberries, Quaker Real Medleys Summer Berry Oatmeal+ is an oatmeal experience beyond your expectations. It comes in a convenient, portable package so you can eat it anywhere! Just add water and microwave. No mess, no bowl to clean up.

It was tasty and filling. It is 250 cals which is actually better then the 320 cals that two packets of the instant has. One envelope never quite satisfies me for very long. These will be handy to have at work or in a pinch. There are three other flavors as well: Apple Walnut, Cherry Pistachio and Peach Almond. I bought the Apple and Cherry ones but peach does not appeal to me. I will let you know how they are once I try them.

I wanted to thank all of you for commenting on yesterday's post. It felt good to get it out of my head. I know that some of it is irrational. I just have to keep reminding myself. I think that it has to do with my self-worth and self-esteem. After 40+ years of feeling inadequate, it is sometimes hard to ditch those old tapes but I am working on it! Until next time...


  1. I'm not big on oatmeal, but love the flavor combo of Cherry & Pistachio. In fact if i were to ever have more cats (we have 4 so not likely) I'd name the next two Cherry & Pistachio.

    Bravo to you for yesterdays post. That kind of honesty is proof that you are moving from the former inadequate self feelings to a positive forward feeling self.

  2. Be careful of the sugar in those instant oatmeals!


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
