– 1/2 cup Quaker old fashioned oats (150 cal.)
– 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (30 cal.)
– 1 Chiquita organic banana (110 cal.)
– 2 TBS. organic honey (120 cal.)
410 calorie meal! Under 500 calories! This breakfast is healthy and keeps you fuller for longer because of the fiber from the oats and banana. The banana will also help to refuel your body after a long workout, and helps to prevent muscle cramps!
Banana Oatmeal is literally my go to meal after any workout! I know some of you are thinking “gross” ! But, I actually like the taste of oatmeal! Plus adding ingredients such as banana and honey help make the oatmeal slightly sweet! I have very busy days so after my workout I pop some oats and almond milk on my stove and cook it for about 5-8 minutes. I then add 2 TBS. of organic honey, and dice the organic banana into the cooked oats. It is so easy to make especially if you’re in a rush, like I am 98% of the time! I usually run errands and prep for my next blog posts after my workout so I can be gone from home anywhere from 2-4 hours! And I like eating at home because I feel that home cooked food is always better. Of course the weekends are my cheat days, but I try my best to eat at home on the week days for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. So since I am gone for hours at a time, my banana oatmeal will keep me full all the wait up until lunch! It is perfect for me because I get hangry, I have finally admitted it. Anyone who knows me, knows that if I don’t have food in my belly it’s best not to get on my bad side. Haha, okay maybe I am exaggerating a tad, but seriously this meal is my go to meal post workout! It’s perfect for me & and I hope that you guys will try it out!
