Oatmeal Breakfast

Sure, it’s old fashioned. But it’s also nutritional rocket fuel, and athletes are making it taste great. Here’s how.

A bowl of oats is a big blank canvas, ready to be combined with a truckload of other high-quality, nutritious ingredients that make it even better training food. “That’s one of oatmeal’s great virtues. You can take it in so many directions,”

It’s easy to make. All you have to do is boil a ratio of 1/2 cup rolled oats to one cup liquid—either water or a milk of your choice—and top it with whatever you need that day. (For steel-cut oats, change the ratio to 1/4 cup oats to one cup liquid.) -Try to use whole or steel cut oats to slow digestion which controls blood sugar.

Healthy Bowl o’ Oats with Protein

  • 1cups water or milk
  • 1/2 cups whole oats
  • 1 eggs (Poach ahead of time in water with a bit of vinegar and salt.)
  • 1 tablespoons coconut oil

Top with a small serving of sliced banana, raisins, yogurt, berries, dried fruit, nuts, and/or peanut butter.

If you need to make several days at a time and warm it up in the morning to save time.

You can also make cold soaked oats in the refrigerator and eat it cold or save time with cooking.
