O.K., if you haven't heard by now, I have been re-starting my fitness journey. You can read about that on this post. This journey comes complete with workout clothes that are too tight, consistent bow-legged walking and my ever popular, No-Fun Diet. (I'm thinking of copywriting...)
I've done this diet once before, and this recipe for oatmeal became one of my favorite easy staples. It is a complete blend of protein, complex carbs, and fats. It's great for energy before a workout, and it re-fuels post-exercise. It also tastes good, when it comes out, it smells and tastes (kinda) like a cinnamon bun. I don't like the texture of goopy cooked oatmeal, and this keeps it raw.
1/4 Granny Smith Apple, cubed
1 Egg White
Vanilla Whey Protein
1 cup Oatmeal (not instant)
1 tbsp Slivered Almonds (healthy fats)
Cinnamon and Splenda to taste
- Mix all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. I put 1 splenda in and enough cinnamon to lightly dust the top.
Aubrie LOVES helping!
2. Stir the ingredients with a spoon until the egg white moistens everything.
3. Microwave on high for 30 seconds.
I eat this on my carb days and if it's in the morning, I add the apple for energy. Otherwise I leave it out because fruit has sugar in it. Sugar = fat, and until my weight gets back down, all fruit is nixed and then will gradually be put back in.
Let me know if you try it, and tell me how you like it!
