i LOVE cream of wheat. i don't know if it's necessarily "better" but it's good for you. it has a ton of iron in it. i like to stir jam into mine.
I love cream of wheat too! :]
Mixed with Creamy nut butter is good.
You should also try Cream of rice!~ Yummiee
I LOVE cream of wheat (hate oatmeal). I eat it with a little butter and then put it on top of pumpernickle bread. OMG--the best!
I'm obsessed with cream of wheat! I don't know if it is necessarily better than oatmeal. There is a new whole grain cream of wheat that is 100 calories a serving. It tastes about the same. If you love cream of wheat try it with some of these mix ins!
I first mix mine with 1/4 c steel cut oats then add-
soy and whey protein powder
nutmeg and cinnamon
stevia and splenda
lastly, milled flaxseeds
Mix all together! OMG it tastes like cake.. its amazing!

does anyone besides myself like cream of wheat?? Does anyone know if its better for you than oatmeal?? help please
Cream of Wheat has less calories and quite a bit less sodium than oatmeal, but also less protein and fiber. Both are pretty good for you, so eat which ever one you like best. Personally, I love both.
Another thing, shredded wheat (the hot kind you cook with water) is low in calories and has no sodium.
I LOVE cream of wheat... I keep forgetting to buy it. I cook it nice and thick and put a little milk and brown sugar (I know, I know... lol) on it.. yummmm!!
I like both cream of wheat and oatmeal but my current favorite hot breakfast grain is quinoa.
We have had wonderful fresh blueberries this year - quinoa, bb, a bit of milk and brown sugar is my current mix.
I absolutly LOVE cream of wheat. I put berries on it in the morning, or a little flavored soy milk *in heaven*
omg cream of wheat is simply deelish! but oatmeal I believe is more nutricious, so in the health department oatmeal wins by a bit, but cream of weaht is still very good for you :) I only made it with milk, and sprinkled a bit of splenda on it...tried it once with sliced banana in it and omg *drools*
there's no cream of wheat in Spain, so I def miss it a whole lot *tear*
