  17. Ultimate Oatmeal (recipe below)

With this version of oatmeal, I cook-in frozen blueberries and then add protein powder AFTER it has cooked. The blueberries give it a great taste that’s good for you and the protein powder gives a creamy vanilla texture. Mmm!

1. Oatmeal - 1/3 cup
2. Water - 1 cup
3. Frozen Blueberries - 1/2 cup (Or you can add other frozen fruit or peanut butter)
4. Protein powder - 1 rounded scoop (34 grams)

Cook (1) serving of Oatmeal - 1/3 cup dry with 1 cup water and add 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
(or other frozen fruit—you may have to adjust the water a little less)

Microwave on high for 4-4 1/2 minutes (careful it’s HOT and it may overflow the bowl, if it does overflow, stop the microwave and let settle down. Then resume until finished)

Test consistency, microwaves vary

If it seems cooked (the oatmeal sucks up all the water and it's smooth),
add 1 scoop of protein powder and mix throughly (don't cook the protein powder).

Allow to cool and and eat. Takes about 5-7 minutes total. Yum.
