High Protein Breakfast with Steel Cut Oats
Protein for breakfast is sooo important to set our blood sugar on the right track for the whole day. Avoiding the fake and unsustaining boost of morning energy from high caffiene and high sugar will make a remarkable difference in not only our energy but our moods and fatigue levels. The people around you will appreciate your effort :).
Cook steel cut oats according to package directions (I do the 1 cup oats to 3 cups water to have breakfast cooked for the days ahead.)
When oatmeal is done cooking, I add:
1/2 – 1 tsp Splenda packaged w/brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Before serving I added ground flax, blueberries, and walnuts
Any combo of options works as diced apples, sliced bananas, etc. I usually avoid most dried fruits because of the high sugar content so read labels carefully.
A 1/4 c serving of steel cut oatmeal with 1/4 cup walnuts is 14 grams of protein…that is awesome for starting our day!
