If you’re like most people, you put food in one of 2 categories.
The first category is tasty. The second is healthy.
I’m here to tell you these are not mutually exclusive.
A Warrior was recently asking me how to make their oatmeal healthier. My response was to add some protein. Here’s how.
½ cup old fashioned oats
½ scoop whey or soy powder
1 ¼ to 1 ½ cups water (depending on how thick you like your oatmeal)
¼-1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 packet Splenda or favorites sugar substitute
2 Tbsp Flax Meal
Blend water and Eniva protein powder together. Stir all ingredients together in saucepan or microwave safe dish. Oatmeal can be made on the stove top or microwave by following directions on the box. Since the addition of protein powder can make the oatmeal more “gluey,” stove top method is preferred. If using the microwave, make sure you stir halfway through cooking. Top with fresh fruit if you prefer.
