Good morning! So guys, as you may know I know follow the IIFYM way of eating and it works amazing for me! But what you also should know is that fibre is an extremely important part of this diet! You cannot leave it out. So, if you are finding it hard to fit in your fibre for the day while still eating tasty food, here is a simple breakfast that packs 13-14g of fibre/ bowl! Each bowl only contains 234 calories! It also contains 8g of protein! It will keep you feeling full for long! It also is so great tasting that it won’t be a challenge to finish the whole bowl!
-1/4 cup dry quick oats
-2/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-1/2 tbsp ground flax
-2 drops stevia sweetener(or another sweetener to taste)
-1/4 tsp vanilla extract
-1/2 tsp cinnamon or to taste! + more for topping(I estimate)
-14g or half a serving of bran buds cereal
-1 tbsp crushed pecans(53 calories worth, I measure using a scale!)
-3 tbsp blueberries
-2 medium strawberries chopped
Directions: Combine oats and almond milk in a bowl and microwave for 2:20mins, it should come out a bit runny but not to fear, this is what we want! Now stir in the flax, vanilla, cinnamon and stevia. Next pour in your bran buds and crushed pecans, stir until combined, top with fruit, additional cinnamon and a sprinkle of sweetener(optional). As you serve, the bran buds will have begun to soak up some of the liquid making the oatmeal thick and delicious! Perfection! If you want to really get fancy and add more fibre..add a few raisins on top!
Hey! Sorry for not posting sooner, I have been keeping busy with a new workout program and lots of homework haha 🙂 But thankfully it’s the weekend and that means sleeping in and new recipes! Wahoo. Anyways here’s a recipe to start off your weekend! I will also be posting a caramel banana nut oatmeal recipe that is out of this world very shortly so look out for that too!
1/3 scoop dry quick oats
11g or 1/3 scoop trutein cinnabun protein powder (or vanilla protein powder, but I highly recommend trutein!)
2/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk + 1 tbsp water
1/2 a mashed ripe banana
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
optional: 1 drop stevia sweetener (or another sweetener to taste, I found I didn’t need it since my protein powder was already sweet enough with the banana).
1/2 tsp cinnamon
10-12 crushed almonds
20g raisins (around 1-2 tbsp)
Drizzle of sugar-free syrup or real maple syrup
Directions: Combine oats, almond milk and water in a bowl and microwave for 2 min(more or less depending on your microwave but you don’t want the oats too runny). Once cooked add your protein powder, cinnamon, vanilla, banana & half or all the raisins(I like to keep some to top it with!). Stir to combine and top with almonds/raisins/additional cinnamon and syrup. Enjoy!
