Oatmeal is a great base for your breakfast... High protein, low-fat is a perfect choice for those who need high levels of energy in the morning but need to control their calories. It's great for stabilizing blood sugar and lowering bad cholesterol. But let's be honest... oatmeal is pretty boring. Bring some life back into your breakfast with Skinny!
What's the difference between steel-cut and rolled oats? The difference is in their texture. Steel cut oats are less gummy and have a crunchier texture. While rolled oats are very sticky. Eating oatmeal with coconut oil is a great way to start your metabolism in the morning! The great thing about oatmeal is that it's a "blank canvas:– you can add whatever you want to it! It's like the sandwich of the breakfast world. Here is a delicious, high-energy, protein-packed version to try:
- 1 cup of oatmeal
- 1 cup water (preferably filtered)
- 1 tsp of sea salt
- 1 tbsp of Skinny Coconut Oil
- Flaxseed (or nuts)
- Stevia (or preferred low GI sweetener)
Add water and salt to pot, bring to boil. Add oats and reduce to simmer for 5 minutes. Once cooked, add your favorite toppings and of course a dollop of Skinny Coconut Oil. You can vary your oatmeal breakfast each day by switching to berries, bananas, strawberries and almonds. You can also add organic maple syrup, honey or stevia/agave if you want your oats to be a little on the sweet side. A full bowl of oatmeal is around 500 calories and will keep you full for several hours. Enjoy!
