Nutrition For Life

It’s time to rise and shine as a great new day is here. With all the cereals out on the market, it can be very confusing which one fits your needs. I’m not what you call a cereal lover; more an egg person, however, there is one cereal considered the king of kings and that’s Oatmeal.



It’s a tried and true commodity that’s been around since, well a long time. Steel cut is what Oatmeal fanatics swear by, and so I’m going with their write ups and suggestions on this one. This recipe is for the gal who’s working out daily with a normal to high endurance routine. It gives you fuel from the carbs and  also calories to power through your workout.  It also provides the protein to feed those muscles and the fiber to keep things regular and on track.

Power Oatmeal

This oatmeal is packing a powerful ingredient – protein. Mix a scoop of your favorite protein powder into your oatmeal to transform it into a quick and healthy breakfast. Servings: 1

Here’s what you need…

1/4 cup whole grain oats (steel cut)
3/4 cup water
dash of salt
1 scoop high quality protein
1 tablespoon chopped macadamia nuts
1 tablespoon golden raisins
Combine the oats, salt and water in a large microwave safe bowl and microwave for 2 minutes, watching for any signs of boil over. Stir the oats and microwave for another 30 seconds. Repeat this about 3-4 times. Take out of microwave, cover and let stand 2 minutes
Stir in protein, top with nuts and raisins.
Nutritional Analysis: One serving equals: 325 calories, 7g fat, 41.7g carbohydrate, 10.2g fiber, and 25.7g protein.

So, give it a whirl and if you feel you need to adjust on numbers feel free to do so.
