Starbuck's Perfect Oatmeal
Now I previously blogged on the evils of the drive thru... but this is almost an acceptable macro alternative if you are without rice balls and hungry. Especially if you are out and about, busy, too lazy to get the kids out of their seats, and or need an occasional quick breakfast alternative.
The only draw backs are as follows: they are making instant oatmeal instead of the slower cooking variety, it's not organic, and it's prepared in a microwave.
Now the nuts are almonds and pecans, and the dried fruit is golden and regular rasins, cranberries, cherries, currants , and dates. Its a generous portion of fruit. I usually don't even open it when I get the oatmeal. I throw it in my car and keep it as a healthy snack option for the kiddos who are not as macrobiotically minded as me.
The nuts are a small portion that adds a nice protein kick to the meal especially if I am being lazy before a workout.
Now while this is not the perfect macrobiotic oatmeal, it's very close. And the irony, is that one of the worlds most famous macrobiotic champions played the Starbuck on televisions original Battlestar Galactica.... and the chain that was named after the first mate in Moby Dick, before Lt Starbuck set foot on the Galactica now carries food that I would classify as almost macrobiotic that conveniently you don't even need to get out of your car for.....in case you didn't all ready know all of that.
