Power Oatmeal!

Power Oatmeal? Yeh. Want that warm, smoothe oatmeal breakfast, but also working out and need the extra protein you get from a ham n eggs type of breakfast? Here's one solution.

Oatmeal (take your pick):

Oatmeal Porridge

  • 1/4C cut oats
  • 1 Qt water
  • pinch salt
  • Bring water to a rolling boil
  • sprinkle the oats onto the "roll"
  • stir well
  • keep at a boil (stirring every now and then) until it begins to thicken, then reduce to a simmer and simmer for 20-30 minutes or so (depends on how smoothe or "chewy" you like your porridge)


Your fav "rolled" oats--the flat stuff you associate with Quaker Oats. Regular or instant, fixed as you usually do or the package directs.

The "power" part?

First: flavor. I like to add freshly-grated cinnamon and nutmeg, margarine (or butter) and some apple jelly.

Then, for added protein, whip up 8 oz of a high-quality, high-protein shake. I use the a super high-quality (ordered over the internet) vanilla-flavored protein shake for adding to oatmeal. Use the protein shake in place of milk. (Drink any shake mix left after pouring an amount you prefer over the oatmeal. :-)

When I have 'em, I'll add raisins to the oatmeal porridge as it's cooking.

Warm, tasty, filling and an extra protein boost.

Update: Oh, where's the coffee? Already downed by this time and starting on a second third fourth cup. What?!? Breakfast w/o Joe? Say it ain't so! UPDATE: In comments The MaryHunter suggests cardamom and brown sugar—each separately or together worthy additions to oatmeal.
