Proatmeal (gluten free, nut free)
Makes 1 large bowl of proatmeal
-‘Proatmeal is the ideal post workout meal because it’s a ‘whole’ food with a punch of protein as well. It has a great carb to protein ratio for maximizing muscle repair and recovery. The biggest benefit is that it tastes awesome and you can also eat it before or after your workout!’ -Dave Copeland-Smith of @beastmodesoccer
1 cup oats (can sub GF)
1.5 cups liquid (I used almond milk)
Pinch sea salt
1 scoop protein powder (Dave recommends Promix grass-fed whey protein)
Nuts and fresh or dried fruit for serving
Stir oats, liquid, and sea salt together in a small pot. Cook over medium-high heat until the oatmeal bubbles gently and reaches your desired consistency. Remove from heat and add a scoop of your favorite protein powder. Mix well, let cool a little, and then add your toppings and enjoy! *The ratio for oatmeal is 2 parts oats to 3 parts liquid, so you can always make a larger batch. *Most protein powders have sugar in them, but if you want to make your proatmeal sweeter, you can add maple syrup, honey, or brown sugar.
