Hey, girl hey!
Want to know what I eat for break every single day? Basically What I’ve eaten for breakfast almost every single day for the past 6 years?
Well here it is, PB2 & Banana Oatmeal.
It is absolutely amazing and so delicious. I would describe it has a warm peanut butter and banana cookie.
Oatmeal is by far my favorite thing to have for breakfast. It’s a high carb choice, but it’s filled with the good kind of carbs, which are complex carbs! Your body NEEDS complex carbs to fuel your body & your brain. Complex carbs are great to have for breakfast because it takes your body a long time to digest them! Aka – they will keep you full from breakfast to lunch! Oatmeal helps to lower cholesterol, balances blood sugar and is full of fiber, protein & antioxidants.
Sometimes for a little extra protein, I’ll add about a 1/3 scoop of my vanilla protein power in it!
Basically, after I eat this in the morning, I am fueled & ready for my day. I shared this recipe before, but wanted to shine some light on it because it is such a staple in my diet.
