I love a good bowl of oatmeal in the morning to wake up to. Oatmeal is a great form of fiber which is so important for weight loss. I talk more about why that is in my free weight loss training.

But here’s the thing about oatmeal…you can’t eat it without PROTEIN. Protein is king for stabilizing blood sugar and balancing the good carbs in oatmeal.

I find with my clients they are never eating enough protein and they’re not balancing the ingredients in their meals in a way to keep their blood sugar stable. Blood sugar management really is key regardless if you’re someone who is pre-diabetic, diabetic or has metabolic disorder.

Cravings is the number one question I get from people. The truth is cravings can be complex, but generally cravings are a result of not eating enough of food and not eating enough PROTEIN.

WHY HIGH PROTEIN OATMEAL IS IMPORTANT
Adding protein to oatmeal is so important and a common mistake people make. Eating food isn’t just about the number of calories, having healthy ingredients and high quality ingredients, but about the proper nutrition.

What I mean by proper nutrition, is balancing the protein, carbs and fat. If you’re eating something high in carbs like oatmeal without adding a significant amount of protein, you will be hungry a few hours later because there’s no protein to balance your blood sugar.

If you’re asking if just adding fat like nuts and nut butters is good enough for a protein source, the answer is no. Nuts and nut butters are much higher in fat than protein and adding a higher fat food to a high carb food like oatmeal without protein is a recipe for cravings because the ingredients were not balanced properly.

HIGH PROTEIN CHOCOLATE OATMEAL
This easy, make at home oatmeal uses just five simple ingredients. Ingredients I highly recommend are always in your pantry! Oats, protein powder, ground flax and cinnamon. This mix of ingredients keep the nutrition (carbs, fat and protein) balanced so you’ll stay full after eating it.

I used a dairy-free, Vegan and gluten free protein powder, but you can use any protein powder. My only watch out with the protein powder is to pay attention to the carb content. The protein powder I used is lower in carbs to balance the good carbs in the oats.
