Healthy post-workout Breakfast: Banana, chia and oat porridge
When it gets colder, I think you cannot beat a big comforting bowl of oats! The key to making it keep you fuller for longer is to make healthy additions boosting up the good fats and protein content of the meal.
Why are oats so super?
Oats are great because they are high in both protein and carbs. This combination means that they are really satisfying and an easy food for the body to absorb. To keep it as clean as possible opt for large organic oats as often powdered forms have been processed and added to. Who needs instant oats when real oats can be ready in under 5 minutes?!
Maybe not milk?
Many people have an intolerance to dairy or maybe are cutting down on dairy consumption due to ethical concerns regarding the dairy industry. We are so fortunate to live in a time when this is easier than ever with so many milk substitutes to choose from! Give them all a go! To keep things healthy, we need to keep sugars down so choose unsweetened varieties if you can. You can always sweeten your porridge using dates or fruit afterwards
