Okay, I know, it's Friday evening. If you're like me, all you can think about is getting home from work, sprawling across the couch and enjoying a cold beverage. Maybe a margarita, or a beer, or maybe a lemonade. But, come tomorrow morning you're going to need breakfast. Or I will anyway, if I don't eat breakfast I am not a happy camper. So, I'm here to share a healthy breakfast with you.
I know you're supposed to have protein for breakfast. But if I just have protein and nothing else, guess what, still grumpy. I need some carbs with my protein to be completely happy. I pinned a recipe the other day that I've adapted a bit and I'm going to share it with you.
1/4 cup oats, I like steel cut
1 egg (or eggbeaters for a lighter option)
Handful of fruit, I like raspberries
A splash of Skim Milk
1 T brown sugar (you could use Splenda or some other artificial sweetener or even honey)
Grab a mug, dump all the ingredients in a mug. Mix 'em up. Throw the mug in the microwave for about a minute and a half (more or less depending on your microwave, that's just how long it takes in mine). Let it cool a bit and enjoy. It should slide out of the mug pretty nicely if you want to put it on a plate. But why would you want to get something else dirty, you can totally just eat it out of the mug.
Nutrition Information (via MyFitnessPal)
Yes, it does have quite a bit of sugar. You could totally make that lower by subbing out an artificial sweetener. I personally prefer to use the calories for real sugar than use artificial sweetener, just a personal preference. You could also use eggbeaters for lower calories. All in all, not terrible for you. And look at all that protein!
What about you guys? Are you a breakfast person? I love breakfast! I wish my husband was as much of a breakfast person as I am. Any Go To delicious breakfasts at your house? Will you make me pancakes sometime? I refuse because I hate the lingering smell.
