I normally eat a boiled egg, fruit and nuts in the morning.
If I’m in a hurry, a Lara bar.
And coffee. With real cream. Sue me.
If I’m enjoying my morning, I have oatmeal with blueberries, peanut butter and vanilla protein powder. It’s usually cold by the time I eat it. But still tasty.
That would be swell. So, I did it. Minus the blueberries, add banana.
please, for the love of protein powder, read your labels.
If you are using protein powder in anything … make sure the carbs and sugars are below, I dunno, 5 combined. There’s no need to add extra sugar and calories into your diet.
Oh, and P.S. did you know most women aren’t getting enough protein and we should be consuming about 40-50 grams each day? Add a little egg white, skim milk or an extra slice of turkey to your diet to try and hit that target. Or … use protein powder in the morning to really amp-up your intake early on.
2 large 1 cup servings
1/2 C Oats
1/2 TSP Vanilla
1 TBSP Agave
1 mashed banana – you could half this or use 1/4 C sugar free applesauce to cut down on carbs. I should have done this.
1/4 C skim milk
2 (less than heaping) TBSP Peanut Butter, I used crunchy.
dash of Salt
1 scoop Protein Powder
1 handful chocolate chips that are totally not necessary. Just good. Okay, really good … and completely necessary.
1. Incorporate all dry ingredients. Add mashed banana and the rest of the wet ingredients. Stir and mash well.
2. Bake in ramekins or a small baking dish at 375 for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown on top.
Enjoy your morning!
Peace, love and breakfast!
