Oatmeal is by far my favorite breakfast and I wanted to find something that was similar that would fit into my version of Paleo, so I’ve created a Paleo Friendly Oatmeal based on a few recipes I’ve seen online. At little back history, on Monday I decided to try to give up all refined foods, oats, wheat, sugars and stick to veggies, meat and fruit. I’ll most likely be able to follow the 80/20 rule to start. I’m on day 4 and traveled this week to NY and NJ and was able to stick to this about 90%. The biggest challenge I’ve had so far is finding enough veggies when going through airports so I did hit the fruit a little hard this week.
Here is my version of a oat-free oatmeal, I’ve adapted a few recipes I found online to create this. (sorry I don’t have links handy)
The Recipe Paleo Friendly Oatmeal
- 1/4 Cup Almond Milk (unsweetened)
- 9Tbps of egg whites
- 1/2 Mashed Banana (the other half I sliced up)
- 1tsp cinnamon
- 1tsp nutmeg
- 2Tbps of FlaxMeal
Put into a pot, mash the banana and stir together and cook over medium heat for 4-5 minutes until thick and clumpy, add more cinnamon and berries to give it extra flavor if needed.
It was amazing and good! It contained – 307 calories, 42g carbs and 20g protein
