Wellness Wednesday–Chocolate Oatmeal


Here’s a super easy and fast breakfast that you can make in about 1 minute and take on the go with you to start your day out right!  If you’ve ever had Malt-O-Meal as a kid, this kind of reminds me of that…


-Instant Oats, add water and pop in microwave for 1 min

-scoop almond butter

-scoop protein

-mix and dig in!


As with any of these recipes, you can modify as needed to fit what is most appropriate for your macronutrient and caloric needs.  Check your labels to be sure, as everything can differ, but I know that 1/2 cup of dry oatmeal makes about 26g carbs, 1 tbsp almond butter is about 9g fat, and your protein can vary depending on what you get.  If you want (for example) 40g carbs, 30g protein, and 9g fat, you just figure out your portions and make it a habit.  Don’t let anyone tell you that they don’t have enough time to make breakfast!


Give it a try and let me know what you think!


If you have any other great Wellness Wednesday ideas, throw them my way and I’ll include them in upcoming weeks!
