Rich in nutrients such as fiber and protein, oatmeal is a healthy and tasty way to start your day. One of the most recognizable and widely available brands is Quaker Oats, which produces both a quick oats version and an old-fashioned one. As quick oats only save a few minutes of time and lack the flavor and texture of regular oatmeal, stick with the old-fashioned version, also known as rolled oats.
