Egg White Oats

So I’ve been trying to be really good on my new meal plan set out for me by my trainer. It’s really strict… i.e. it’s no fun.

 

BUT I figure I’ll prove to my trainer that I’m super serious by following her meal plan, and then I’ll use my powers of persuasion to weasel my way into some more fun foods.

 

Being a creative food person, I’m finding my way around the meal plan which is supposed to be boring. Boring? Not me.

 

Here comes breakfast! Please be a bit adventurous with me. If Egg White Oats sounds familiar to you, then you’re probably in my club! You know, the fitness people who will try just about anything using oats and egg whites…sometimes protein powder. If not, then you’re probably thinking I’m crazy and that you would have never paired these things together. To me, these two things have always paired well together (I love making an egg white omelet and putting it on top of my oatmeal and eating them at the same time, which is very similar!).

I love my Egg White Oats with extra cinnamon!

Notice, also, that the portion is really big! I need to eat more to lose weight…again. But I’m ready to be full for a few more hours!

 

Ready to a super healthy, super yummy start to your day in this brand new year? Let’s do it!

Ingredients
  1. ½ cup old fashioned oats
  2. 1 cup water
  3. ½ cup liquid egg whites (or 4 egg whites)
  4. ½ tsp. cinnamon
  5. ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  6. 1-2 tsp. granulated Stevia
Instructions
  1. In a small sauce pan, combine the oats and water. Turn the heat on medium. After 2 min, the oats will start to fluff up. Add the egg whites. Stir slowly, in a figure-8 motion and around the pot, for the next 3-4 min; until the oats look fluffy and start to pull away from the edge of the pot when you stir around. Quickly stir in the cinnamon, vanilla, and sweetener. Pour the eggy oats into your bowl, top with a sprinkle more of cinnamon, and enjoy!
Notes
  1. Note: These Egg White Oats are also a fabulous vehicle for your favorite berries, dried fruit, bananas, or nuts! Also, don’t be afraid to make them the night before then either reheat them the next morning or eat them cold! Be adventurous with your breakfast!

    We get really creative with our favorite ingredients don’t we? Your oats look good. I agree egg whites add lots of protein and make them more satisfying. Protein powder works too.

    Gotta admit I’d never heard of egg white oats, guess I’m in the club now! I make oatmeal overnight in the rice cooker, I wonder how it would turn out if I added egg white? I’ll have to experiment sometime.
