I love oatmeal because its a complex carb that is filling, takes time to digest and you can mix it with any fruit, and I love fruit to, so I get the best of both worlds. This bowl of oatmeal is usually my number one pick in the morning.
*1/2 cup of old fashioned oats ..150 cal..
*add water, whatever amount you want, rather you like it thick or runny
*Put it in the microwave for 1 minute
*Add a handful of blueberries (great antioxidants, and low cal)
*Some slivered almonds
*1/2 a scoop of vanilla protein powder
*and a tablespoon of agave nectar (www.allaboutagave.com) and stir it all together.
It will keep you full all morning! Now, avoid the pre-packaged oatmeal..which can have as much sugar in them as a bowl of sugary cereal. They are made with quick oats which are not as filling as old fashioned. So you will get hungry sooner. Its also cheaper to buy your oats in bulk anyway, I get mine at Sunflower Market, last week they were on sale for 50 cents a pound! You know I stocked up.
Enjoy your Breakfast! The breakfast of champions! Oh, and BTW this is a perfect post workout meal, complex carbs, protein, with natural sugar. I give it 5 stars *****
