"I love spicing my bowl of oats up, and they're the perfect post or pre-workout meal."April 04, 2019 2:29 pm

Many people still hold the misconception that being vegan means that you are missing out on an array of essential nutrients, protein in particular! After being vegan for over 3 years now and feeling the best and cleanest I ever have, as well as still being alive and well, I can assure you that being vegan most definitely does not equate to deficiencies! I personally get my protein from whole food sources such as legumes, nuts, seeds, and grains, one of my favourite being oats! Oats are not only an amazing source of fibre, but they are also rich in protein.
The ideal breakfast, especially on a gym day, would most definitely be a delicious bowl of overnight proats. Not only is it packed full of protein, filling, and energising, but it also tastes like dessert and who doesn’t want dessert for breakfast?!?
"Whole oats are rich in protein, a great source of complex carbohydrate, full of fibre."
For your base, use 1/2 cup to 1 whole cup of oats depending on how hungry you are! Whole oats are rich in protein, a great source of complex carbohydrate, full of fibre. It will provide you with all of the energy you need, feed your muscles, and also maintain many functions within your body such as digestion, blood pressure, sugar levels, and more.
2. The mix-ins
Although your bowl is already protein-packed, adding protein powder, like Erbology Raw Organic Hemp Powder, will boost that even more. It will also give your breakfast that pudding sensation. Make sure your protein powder is filled with clean ingredients rather than chemicals, unrefined sugar, and other not-so-heathy add-ons—that’ll throw your healthy breakfast out the window and also leave you feeling not so great. If you don’t have or don’t want to use protein powder, instead, mash up a ripe banana and stir this in! This will most definitely do the trick and add to the nutritional and fiber content.
Probably the most important step if I do say so myself! The toppings are what’ll make this bowl special and not just leave it like a sweet bowl of mush (although still delicious). Toppings can also increase protein, healthy fat, and overall nutritional value of your brekkie! My favorite toppings are fruit, granola, and nut butter. I personally love Erbology Tigernut Granola with Nopal as not only is it rich in protein and fibre and is 100% made up of clean, natural, and unique ingredients, it’s also bloody delicious and it is the perfect addition to your delicious, nutritious, breakfast!
