*These amounts can easily be adjusted for your particular portion size! Therefore, macronutrients here vary.
55g Old Fashioned or Steel Cut Oats (steadier release of sugar into the bloodstream versus instant oats which will spike blood sugar)
55g Liquid Egg Whites
55g Unsweetened Milk of choice (I used unsweetened Almond & Oat Milk)
Mix the above ingredient together and microwave for 1 minute.
Microwave for 0:30 seconds and stir again.
Repeat this process until your oats are cooked.
Nuts, Nut butter or Powdered peanut butter
Your toppings depend on two things: what sounds good to you and when you are eating the oatmeal. If you’re consuming before or after a workout, aim for a lower fat, higher carb oatmeal to be easily digested and replenish energy stores. If eating NOT around fitness, add some healthy fats to your oats like nuts, seeds, or a nut butter.
If this is not enough protein for you (as it is not for most people), try adding an addition protein on the side such as eggs, more egg whites, turkey bacon, a breakfast sausage, etc., as needed and as you are aware of the intention based on the parameters above. (i.e. working out or not)
