PB2 and Banana Power Oatmeal

Mmmmmm….Peanut Butter!

Who loves peanut butter (me pointing at myself) this girl! The only problem is that I have absolutely no self-control around an open jar of it and can easily mow through half of it in 2 seconds flat. OK, I’m exaggerating but only a little.

So, I cannot tell you how happy I was when I discovered PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter. With only 45 calories, 1.5g of fat and 5g of carbs in 2 Tablespoons, it was as if I’d found the holy grail! Now whenever I need a PB fix I mix together some PB2 powder and water so I can indulge without overindulging.

Anyway, this morning after my workout I realized I had a couple of bananas that were going to spoil if I didn’t use them soon so here’s what I came up with:

Since this is generally my post-workout meal, I cook 1/2 c oatmeal in the microwave for about 2 minutes. Next, I add in the protein and peanut butter powder with a splash of flax milk. Continue adding in the flax milk until it’s the consistency you like and mix in a packet of stevia (optional). Top off with a sliced banana and you’re ready to start the day.

Pumpkin Oatmeal With A Protein Kick

More often than not I get asked what I eat so I got to thinking…why not blog about it. I love this time of year when the weather starts to cool and the holidays are just around the corner. Fall is such a great time for pumpkin and all types of squash so why not incorporate some pumpkin into your morning.

1/2 c oatmeal
1 pk MuscleMeds Carnivore Vanilla Caramel
2 T pumpkin
1 pkt stevia
1/4 c Good Karma Flax Milk (add in to the consistency you desire, I get it at Sprouts)
Dash of cinnamon

I like to cook the oats in the microwave for about 2 minutes. Next, I mix in a packet of protein powder then add the pumpkin with a little flax milk. I add in the stevia and sprinkle with cinnamon. This is a nutritious post-workout breakfast for the fall!
