Unhealthy Proteins: Nature’s Valley Mixed Berry Crunch Protein Oatmeal

Some food brands have jumped on the protein train, adding it to already fiber-rich oatmeal. If you want to reap the benefits of protein first thing in the morning, we’d recommend thinkThin’s option over Nature Valley’s. The difference here is in the serving size; you get 10 grams of protein for each cup, but you have to eat a larger portion of Nature Valley to get that amount. And in doing so, you’re also swallowing down an additional 8 grams of sugar — talk about health foods that are worse than a donut.
