Started my morning with my favorite thirty40thirty-balanced oatmeal. Keeps me alert, focused, energized and satisfied for the next 4 hours!

Instant Oatmeal with Blueberries and Nuts

1 pkg instant original oatmeal
14 grams of protein powder (I use Veggie Protein - slightly more than 1/2 scoop)
1/2 cup boiling water (or more depending on consistency you prefer)
dash of salt
8-10 blueberries
2 tsp of crushed nuts (I use walnut, pecan and almond mixture w cinnamon)

Combine first 4 ingredients and stir to mix. Add blueberries and nuts and serve.

    I absolutely cannot function throughout the day without eating my morning oatmeal! But I definitely need to try this recipe to put a new twist to it 🙂 thank you!

      Amber, try a GNC store to see if they have single serving packets of different protein powders so you can try whey, soy or vegetable protein and see which you prefer. I use a vanilla flavor or plain for my oatmeal and chocolate or vanilla for my shakes. Thanks for your comments!
