A lot of people I work with don’t understand the importance of breakfast, or that you need to eat carbs in order to burn fat.
I always recommend to eat a good sized breakfast an hour and half before your workout, and to workout no later than three hours post your meal even if you don’t feel hungry! I guarantee with my recipe below you will be able to eat the whole thing!
2 cups Steel cut, organic oats
2 scoops Protein Powder (I like to use sun warrior chocolate or vanilla flavour)
1.5 cups of Almond Milk (I like to use my homemade almond milk)
1 cup water
2 tsp of cinnamon
For the toppings
2 tbsp of natural yoghurt or kefir
Berries (I like to use raspberries, blueberries or strawberries as they are low in fructose and full of anti-oxidants)
These are just a few ideas but you can top with anything- nuts, seeds or cacoa powder for extra chocolatey’ness!
In a bowl combine steel cut oats, cinnamon, protein powder, almond milk and water – mix together well before soaking in the fridge overnight.
In the morning place yoghurt, berries of your choice, flax seed, nuts in a bowl and serve.
