A new line of oatmeal boosts your breakfast

This morning, we're totes about oats.

The reason? A new line of all-natural, superfood-studded oatmeal, Brainy Oats (currently sold for $3.50 per 2.5-ounce cup online), which claims to stimulate your synapses with its vitamin-rich ingredients.

The single-serve cups are ready to eat after three to five minutes of steeping in hot water, and each is packed with antioxidant-rich additions like berries and nuts. And unlike other packaged single-serving oatmeal on the shelves, Brainy Oats is made with whole, not instant, oats, which have been shown to lower inflammation and cholesterol.

Of Brainy Oats' four flavors, we especially enjoyed the unfussy Banana & Walnut oatmeal, lightly spiced with Turkish cinnamon, and the sweet-tart Strawberry, Banana & Almond variety. We're also fans of the line's recyclable packaging, and that it's easy to eat on the go.

All pretty smart, if you ask us.
