Oats are also packed full of antioxidants and are high in soluble fiber which increases the feeling of fullness and reduces your blood sugar levels and cholesterol.
They can also help you to lose body fat as they will keep you fuller for longer which will stop you from eating more throughout the day.
Add to the health benefits of Oats by mixing Whey Protein Powder into them when your oats are cooked.
The Whey will supply the body with protein which will assist in slamming on muscle mass and keep you feeling fuller for longer.
We recommend using a flavored protein powder such as chocolate which is delicious combined with warm oats.
You can cook your oats the traditional way of boiling them or if that’s not convenient just pour boiling water on them stir properly then add the powder. If your watching your calorie intake, then just add boiling water or if not you can use milk and either boil or microwave. We recommend using sugar free oats to keep the breakfast as healthy as possible.
