I am not known as being a super great cook or recipe guy, but I have stumbled across a few dishes that have become staples in my nutrition planning. The majority of my go-to recipes are for breakfast which is one of my favorite meals and a great way to start your day. In addition to basic eggs, I tend to make oatmeal variations that are good for a number of reasons including being a good source of carbs, fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. There is also research suggesting that oats can lower cholesterol levels, improve blood sugar control, and help you lose weight. One of my favorite oatmeal recipes is for Banana Walnut Protein oatmeal. While this takes a minute to make it is worth it.
1/2 Cup Oats
1 Banana mashed with a fork
1/2 cup low-fat milk or almond milk
1 egg white
1 scoop Kaged Muscle vanilla whey isolate protein
2 TBSP of plain nonfat Greek yogurt
2 TBSP crushed walnuts
1 TBSP sweetener
1 tsp Cinnamon
*I personally use Kaged Muscle Vanilla Whey Protein Isolate.
Preparation and cooking time: 25 minutes
