oatmeal with a boost


I know I haven’t posted in a while, but this recipe was worth posting for!

Its oatmeal with a boost of immune boosting and antioxidant rich flaxseeds and berries and muscle repairing protein!  Oatmeal is a low glycemic, high fiber food that is also filling and a great addition to your healthy breakfast. Flaxseeds are known to help lower inflammation and are high in cell repairing omega 3 fatty acids.  And whey protein is a highly bioavailable source of amino acids for the repair of muscles and tissues in your body.

I even eat this for dinner sometimes when crunched for time.


30g oatmeal

13g flaxseed meal

1/2c frozen berries

1/2c lowfat milk or vanilla almond milk

1/2 scoop vanilla or berry flavored whey protein powder

mix all ingredients together and cook in microwave for 2 minutes.  (Stir and enjoy. Alternatively you can cook this on the stove but it would take much longer)

Note, if oatmeal comes out too thick, then adjust the water or milk accordingly!  Its that simple
