I have to make this snappy. The husband is throwing daggers into me, with his eyes, right now. Ive been researching homeschool materials on Pinterest for awhile now and hes ready for me to relinquish his computer back to him. Pinterest sucks you in, man! Its like crack. Lol! Even looking something up as mundane as homeschooling lesson plans will keep you searching and searching until you have discovered THE perfect pin.
Anywho, I found this next recipe on good ole Pinterest! I have been drinking green smoothies after my morning workouts but I could tell that that wasn’t enough. After researching nutrition and working out I discovered that ‘they’ say you need to eat something high in protein 30 mins after a workout. It helps your muscles rebuild, or something like that. Lol! (Sorry, I don’t have time to look it up and site it right now but I WILL come back to this topic in a future blog.)
Which is where this breakfast comes in! I have plain oatmeal that’s been sitting in my pantry for the longest time! I didn’t know what to do with it because Im use to eating those packs of instant pre-flavored oatmeal. They are full of sugar and crap. Really, if you eat the packets of oatmeal junk, stop it. You can make your own, control exactly what goes in it, and use fresh ingredients. Its just as easy and quick! Prepare and bake it at night, I put individual servings in ramekins (which I got cheap in Target’s dollar bin section), then in the morning heat it up for about a min and youre good to go. You should also try quinoa in place of oatmeal! Quinoa, mmmm! Its yummy stuff.
Baked Berry Oatmeal
I used this exact recipe except I added 2 tbs of chia seeds. I also used a bit more unsweetened almond milk because I like my oatmeal creamy.
