I have a love/hate relationship with oatmeal – I love the health benefits and the fact that it’s so darn cheap, but I hate the taste. Well I don’t HATE the taste, but I’d rather eat a lot of other things for breakfast. Oatmeal does everything for you from lowering cholesterol to increasing a nursing mother’s milk supply.
Here’s my favorite recipe for oatmeal – it’s high in protein and get’s a serving of fruit in to boot. It’s like I died and went to oatmeal heaven
1/2 cup whole oats
1 cup almond milk
1/4 cup dried cranberries, raisins, blueberries, currants, whatever you like
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1 scoop brown rice protein
Mix the oats and almond milk and either simmer it on the stove for 5 min over medium heat or microwave for 3 minutes. Mix in the vanilla and protein, then the then pecans and cranberries. Eat it while it’s warm!
