How To Get The Greatest Oatmeal Health Benefits

What Is The Best Way To Kick Up Your Oatmeal?

Want to add a kick to your morning oatmeal? If you’re like me, then all you want for breakfast is something that will stick with you for awhile. I’m rarely hungry when I wake up, so I don’t need a lot and I don’t need it to be gourmet either. What I do want is protein since I know it will keep me  fuller longer. oatmealI also want something nutritionally dense to fuel my body with energy and will help avoid that later energy zap in a few hours. For all your meals and snacks check out Kitchology’s Eat.Better app.

How will I achieve these two goals? There are a few different breakfasts I switch between throughout the week. Here is one of the easiest and quickest recipes. It’s Oatmeal with a kick, or should I say, with an added dose of protein.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup  Gluten Free Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (I like Harvest Gluten Free Oats)

1 1/2 cups Water

1/2 cup Almond or Coconut Milk

Handful of Organic Blueberries, Strawberries or any kind of Berry

1 tea spoon Chia Seeds

1 scoop Protein Powder

1/2 teaspoon Organic Honey

Few Walnuts or Almonds (any nuts of choice)

*Protein Powder Options, here are some of my recommendations on clean and favorite brands:

  1. Naked Whey: pure protein powder from grass-fed cows, unflavored
  2. SFH Pure: another great hight quality protein with a wonderful vanilla flavor
  3. Vega: great protein substitute for vegans or if you do not want to have whey

Directions:

  1. In a bowl, add oats and water. Cook over high heat, until the water boils. Lower heat to Medium-Low. Continuously mix the oats until the water has almost evaporated and the oats thicken. This will take about 5min.
  2. Add the scoop of protein powder and stir with the oats.
  3. Add the Coconut or Almond Milk of your choice; mix with oats for 1-2min.
  4. Pour oats in a bowl (the consistency should be mushy, in between soft and thick).
  5. Add toppings like berries, nuts, chia seeds and honey (mix, if you like, with the rest of the oats).
  6. Serve warm and enjoy!

Start the day feeling fresh and vibrant!
