When Good To-Go decided to create a line of breakfast options, they wanted to go back to basics- food that they'd want to eat out on the trail. It obviously needed to be something lightweight, shelf-stable and healthy. Beyond that, it needed to be filling and packed with enough energy to start the day fof right. Oatmeal has always been a staple on our trips to the backcountry, so this was a natural choice. This is anything but your average packet of oatmeal. Good To-Go started with whole grain, gluten-free oats and quinoa. Then added chia and hemp sees, both packed with protein and omega fatty acids. Cinnamon and turmeric were included for their anti-inflammatory qualities, and cordamom for digestion.
When I opened the Good-To-Go oatmeal packet and poured in hot water, the aroma conveyed I was in for something special. After a brief 5 minute wait, I was treated to a tasty flavor and texture mix that surpassed any oatmeal I'd ever eaten. Made me smile.
