Protein Porridge is a quick, easy, healthy, hassle-free meal perfect for any point in the day as the macros can be easily manipulated with a whole host of additions.
This example protein porridge is designed to be a pre-workout meal that I have as my breakfast, 90 minutes prior to training. However, it is ideal for any point during the day with additions of nut butters, chocolate and other fruit/toppings.
- 75g rolled oats
- 200ml almond milk (unsweetened)
- 100-200ml water (as to preferred consistency)
Stir mixture and place in a microwave for 2 minutes;
- 100g chopped banana
- 100g blueberries
- 35g whey protein
- Teaspoon manuka honey
Stir through and add more water if necessary.
(Rough) Macro breakdown:
- Kcals: 580
- Protein: 40g
- Carbohydrates: 90g
- Fats: 10g
Voila! In a couple of minutes you have a nutritious and filling pre-workout meal. The macros can be altered by the addition of nuts, nut-butters, seeds, etc. all of which can be simply added and stirred through once you’ve removed the oats from the microwave when caught short at other periods of the day.
Enjoy your meal and tweet your creations to @LDN_Muscle and @MB_LDNM.
