Oatmeals of awesomeness

Raspberry and cashew nut oatmeal

Oatmeal for breakfast is my new ‘thing’. Mainly because it is about the only thing that reliably keeps my hunger at bay for 4 hours. No mean feat when I am likely to have run 7 miles or lifted 120 lbs in that time. But, just plain oatmeal is… well… plain. Naturally I slough off any of the ‘flavoured’ oatmeals because they are usually too full of sugar, too instant (too high GI) and too fake tasting. Hence I am working on developing the greatest oatmeals ever. Here are two of them:

Chocolate and Peanut butter oatmeal:

1/2 cup dried oatmeal, made with water, 1/2 packet of splenda (or sugar) and 1/2 tbsp of cocoa powder. When it is done, take off the heat and stir in 3 egg whites (optional but does not taste of eggs and makes it thick and creamy). Beat over the heat until the egg white is cooked, serve topped with a tbsp of crunchy peanut butter. Happy days 🙂

Kcals: 302; Fat: 10.93, Protein: 21.88; Carbs: 30.56 (sugar: 2.81).

OK, in some ways it looks a little gross, but it tastes *amazing*

Raspberry and Cashew nut:

1/2 cup dried oatmeal, made with water. Add 3 egg whites as above (optional). Top with raspberries, cashew nuts and heavy cream. Drool.

Made with 6 cashew nuts, 10 raspberries and 1/2 tbsp of cream: Kcals: 286; Fat: 9.91, Protein: 18.81; Carbs: 31.39 (sugar: 2.58).
