Oatmeal & Protein Powder

When I'm rushed for time and need to eat something that is packed with protein and very nutritious, I always choose oatmeal with protein powder. The key is to make sure you choose quality oatmeal. A great choice is Bob's Red Mill oatmeal and if you have the time, you can also choose steel cut oats which take a little longer to prepare (45 minutes) but tastes amazing. You want to avoid any of the instant oatmeal products that come in little packages and are flavored (maple syrup, etc). These are packed with sugar and extra calories! When in doubt, look at the ingredients and it should simply read "100% whole grain rolled oats". Quaker Old Fashioned oatmeal is another good choice if you want to save a little money.


  • 1 cup of 100% old fashioned oatmeal
  • 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder
  • Mix everything in a bowl with water
  • Microwave for about 2 minutes
