What I Had for Breakfast

I never used to like oatmeal, but now it has actually become one of my favorite breakfasts to have. It is quick, easy and very filling! Here's breakfast this morning:
Quaker oats, old fashioned, 2 5 lb. bags, 100+ servings 10-lb 
  • Raisins
  • Water Protein Shake (Water and whey protein)
Healthy 'n Fit 100% Whey Pro Am, Vanilla ice Cream Flavor 5-Pound Bottle Tub 
  •  2 cups of water
It's so quick and healthy you'll love yourself for doing it. Pour half a cup of the oatmeal into a bowl (trust me, 1/2 cup is plenty when it cooks). Then, fill up the oatmeal with water so that it covers the oatmeal and goes a little bit over it (add more or less depending on how thick you like your oatmeal). Put it in the microwave for 2 minutes. Make sure you watch the oatmeal so that it doesn't bubble over the top! When it's done, then you add in a handful of raisins. I don't like to add in raisins before putting it in the microwave because for me, it just doesn't taste good and takes away some of the sweetness. If you want, add in some ground flax for some good fats. Viola! Good yummy food. If you're just starting add in a splenda packet or some other zero calorie sweetener, but try to grow out of it! Getting at least one raisin in every bite sweetens up the oatmeal a lot! Add in a protein shake if you need to get protein into each of your meals in a heavy dose but don't skip the two glasses of water! This also helps keep you full and hydrates your body well from getting dehydrated overnight.
