Busy? I knooow, me too! That’s why, when I don’t have the time to prepare a meal ahead of time, I have a couple of back up plans that are pretty easy, quick and not dirty. In fact, very nutritious!
Oatmeal with egg whites is one of my faves to make for my babies… because it’s really good to them, and really good for them! I used to prepare it the following way without the egg whites, but always felt I’d like to give my babes a little more protein… so I decided to experiment with adding egg whites to the oatmeal before it’s cooked. To my utter delight, it makes a rich, creamy, protein packed complete meal for my littles that’s pretty yum. Yes, I love it too.
Recipe | 1 serving
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 cup milk (I use almond milk)
2 tablespoons of egg whites. Cook according to oatmeal package directions (either stovetop or microwave are fine… just make sure you stir well during the cooking process, or the egg whites will cook together and solidify…eew)
After oatmeal is cooked, add:
1 whole chopped banana while oatmeal is still hot. The banana goo’s into the oatmeal, sweetening it so that you don’t need much honey.
1 heaping tablespoon of raisins
1/2 teaspoon of honey
A sprinkle of cinnamon to taste
You’re welcome and enJOY!
