Oatmeal-berry protein breakfast shake

For most working people, mornings are so busy breakfast seems to get neglected.

Breakfast is perhaps the most important meal of your day, and as mentioned in previous articles should never be skipped. It’s the first meal of the day. Which means whatever you eat fuels your body or slows it down, depending on what you choose to eat. Just because you are in a rush, is not an excuse to skimp on breakfast or completely avoid it. This will just result in you being  in a groggy mood, and possible weight gain overtime.

Even though it might seem easier to stop by a coffee shop and pick up a quick breakfast, which will definitely be loaded with calories, carbs and sodium; this recipe takes under five minutes to prepare and enjoy. It will leave you full because of the oatmeal, and give you an energy boost from the whey protein. When i don’t have time to prepare and eat eggs, i’ll whip up a quick smoothie and be satisfied until lunchtime. Check out the recipe below, hope you enjoy it!

ingredients:

1/2 cup of regular oats

1 cup of non fat milk

1 serving of your favorite whey protein- i like chocolate flavored

about 14 frozen strawberries or mixed berries

1 banana (optional)

Preparation:

  • Pour the oats in a blender and grate until they are finely chopped.
  • Add in the milk, strawberries and whey protein and blend well. If you’d like to add a banana, blend the milk and banana first, then add the berries and whey.
  • Pour and enjoy 🙂

Breakfast can’t get any easier than this! There is definitely no excuse for skipping this meal now!
