“Oatmeal has a health halo,” says Wansink. “As a result, people think it’s a lot healthier for them than it actually is. Eating it with too much sugar jacks up the calories. So does eating too much.”
Adds Wansink, “If you don’t really like the taste of oatmeal, it defeats the purpose of eating it because you’re going to find some other way to compensate, such as putting in a lot of brown sugar to make it a little more palatable. But you can also do that by varying the texture of oatmeal by putting good stuff in it.”
The solution: Transform boring oatmeal by adding a touch of sweetness or texture the healthy way—with a small handful of dried fruit, sliced almonds or walnuts, or with flavorful spices such as cinnamon.
Or skip it all together. There are plenty of other healthy breakfast options out there.
