How to make oatmeal and egg whites – the surprisingly delicious breakfast choice of health nuts, bodybuilders and generally fit people!
If you’re looking for the perfect winter breakfast that doesn’t involve much preparation time, and provides all the nutrients you need in the morning without any bad fats, salts and sugars – we highly recommend that you try oatmeal with egg whites. The oats provide you with a great source of carbohydrates and fibre to tackle the day ahead, and the egg whites add a generous dosage of protein whilst making the oats so tasty and fluffy that you’ll be looking forward to them when you go to bed the night before!
A 750gm bag of generic Quick Oats can last you up to 3 weeks and can cost as little as $2.00… that’s a fairly economical breakfast sorted!
What you’ll need:
1. You can buy ‘Quick Oats’ at your local supermarket. We recommend that you stick to the plain versions – the flavoured versions may contain unwanted sugars and other nasties that you simply don’t need in order to make this recipe taste awesome.
2. Then grab yourself a carton of egg whites (find these in the same section as the eggs; if they don’t have egg whites for sale, you’ll have to settle for normal eggs and separate the yolks as you crack them into the oats).
3. To sweeten things up, you can buy some natural sweetener, cinnamon or nutmeg. We also recommend throwing some berries into the mix for some extra flavour – and it’s really fun to squash them into the oats with your spoon and swirl the vibrant reds and purples into the mixture!
How to prepare it all in under 5 minutes:
1. Mix 1/2 cup of boiled water with 30-50 grams of oats in a microwave-safe bowl. Then stir in 2-4 tablespoons of the egg white mixture (or 2-4 eggs with yolks left out). This is also a great time to add your sweet touches! You can add the berries now or after the microwave – we like them hot, but it’s a personal choice.
2. Place the bowl in the microwave for around 40 seconds.
3. Pour yourself a hot drink and get stuck into those yummy, fluffy oats! You’ll be surprised at how filling a small bowl can be – you may even find it hard to finish the whole thing!
