You probably know that oatmeal is an excellent choice for breakfast.
A bowl has around 20 grams of slow-releasing carbs, so you don’t get an insulin spike, plus it gives you about five grams of fiber.
Unfortunately, oatmeal is bland, so most people add sugar. To pump up the flavor without the extra carbs—simple or otherwise, as with fruit—simply add a scoop of your favorite vanilla protein powder.
You’ll get a sweet vanilla taste and a whopping 20-plus grams of muscle-building protein.
