Governor Schwarzenegger’s Oatmeal: Organic or not
You talk about using twitter. the governator made a splash with this photo of his oatmeal breakfast. Who knew that the smiley face he put in the middle with raisins et al, had more to do with his extra curricular activities than the excellence of oatmeal. Or did it?
Inquiring minds want to know. Was it organic? Or was he? Probably not.
The oatmeal of choice for Arnold Schwarzenegger long before he was elected Governor of California, and currently being served at the Governor’s residence, is Christine and Rob’s organic, slow-toasted, thick-cut oatmeal (www.christineandrobs.com). Served on Hollywood movie sets for over eight years and with a star clientele list that includes Jamie Lee Curtis, Clint Eastwood, and Danny DeVito, Christine and Rob’s Oatmeal is the creation of Christine and Rob Bartell of Stayton, Oregon and features the family’s generations-old recipe.
“We all know that kids do better in school, educationally and physically, when given the proper nutrition at breakfast,” notes Rob Bartell, founder of Christine & Rob’s Oatmeal. “It is the same for adults. Start your day right with a healthy, well-balanced meal and you can feel the difference all day. Christine and I believe that more people should do this, especially kids.” Bartell’s family continues the tradition of their grandfather, James T. Roberts, who was considered by the family to be a true oatmeal connoisseur and lived to be over 100 years old, by maintaining that “the good you expect to get out of your body depends on what you put into it.”
