Healthy and skinny keeps tasting better at Chick-fil-A. The food-service restaurant just added a multigrain oatmeal to its breakfast menu. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill, just-add-water instant oatmeal, either. Chick-fil-A’s multigrain oatmeal is kettle-cooked, steal-cut oatmeal and each bowl is customizable with a bevy of toppings, including cinnamon brown sugar, roasted mixed nuts or a dried fruit blend. YUM! And one of the best things about it is that it’s low-cal at 120 calories per 8-ounce serving.
If you’re a busy mom like Dallas’ Kimberly Ashmore, Chick-fil-A is the place to go when looking to pick up a quick, healthy dinner or after-school snack. “The food my family consumes is a big concern for me,” she said. “We avoid carbs and sugar, and Chick-fil-A offers a variety of those menu items that my kids love to eat.”
Chick-fil-A’s full breakfast menu first appeared in 1986. In the past five years, however, the chain has focused on diversifying its morning menu offerings with a variety of entrees, including Breakfast Burritos, Bagel Sandwiches, Spicy Chicken Biscuits, Fruit Cups and Yogurt Parfaits.
Details: $2.49; 120 calories; serving size 8 ounces; 2.5 grams of fat without toppings (up to 290 cals and 11 grams of fat with the addition of toppings, all with no trans fat).
