Despite its traditional image as the breakfast food, oatmeal really isn't a very nutritionally sound way to start your day. Although it does have some protein to offer, oatmeal is largely just carbs – with varying amounts of fat depending on how you prepare it.
But, with a few simply adjustments, this classic, comforting way to start your day can be much more nutritionally balanced and filling.
- 3/4 cup rolled oats
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 ripe banana, mashed
- 1 scoop Naked Nutrition Vanilla protein powder
Combine all the ingredients in a pot and cook over medium-high heat.
Stir the mixture occasional for about five minutes, until the eggs are no longer runny and it resembles standard oatmeal.
