This morning I’m enjoying a small bowl of oatmeal. I added cinnamon, blueberries, vanilla Protein powder, and some flax & chia seeds. Yum! Good carbohydrates, fats, and protein, Well balanced. Although many people eat oats too they often make this HUGE Mistake:
The quality of the oats. Oats today all over the place….from highly processed packets of apples & cinnamon loaded with sugar to real oats that take 15 min to prepare. Remember the rule….Keep it Real!
So, the real oats are just simply oats and take about 15 – 20 min to prepare. Now, there is a quick oats version of this that is pretty good and is ready in less than half the time. Those are the only types I recommend. After that, its all down hill.
Plus, you should always add your own fresh ingredients:
Fresh or frozen fruit
Peanut or Almond Butter
Flax and/or Chia Seed
Grass Fed Milk, Almond Milk, etc.
Your Favorite Protein powder,
Mix, match, & enjoy! And ALWAYS Keep it REAL!
