In a battle of the oats, would you rather GRITS or OATMEAL?

This little argument started with me and our receptionist Taylor. We're both trying to eat healthier. And both our diets/meal plans include oatmeal. I liken it to breakfast paste. And Taylor can't stop raving about it and her combination of oats and all the flavors. I can't add enough stuff to it to make it taste better. She is lamenting about how sweet some of the flavors are.

Then I brought up the fact that I would much rather eat grits. I am a born and bred southern boy by nature (the pride of Greenville, MS). My mom and grandma used to make grits and I am a purest. Only butter and salt. Some would put sugar on them and to that I say, "GET OUT OF MY KITCHEN AND MY HOUSE"! Grits and eggs and sausage were a staple when I was growing up. And while I understand the nature of our healthy diets and grits not necessarily being being on them, when it comes down to breakfast oats, I would rather a bowl of grits any day compared to oatmeal in any form.

Taylor's only contribution to how great grits are; "they're gritty". Awesome. Way to dig deep there sister.

Would love to hear from you. Answer our poll below and check the conversation on the 97.5 Now FM Facebook page. We'll chat about it Tuesday morning.
