Nutrition Challenge Tip
Does anyone follow Crumbl Cookies to see what flavor cookie they come out with each week?...No, just me? Have you been struggling with your sweet tooth since we have started the challenge? Well here is a recipe I am sure will curb that while still being healthy. One of my new favorite things to eat for breakfast is almond joy oatmeal. It is the perfect amount of sweet while still maintaining healthy habits in your eating. Following the recipe it's 4 blocks of fat, 4 blocks of protein, and 3.5 blocks of carbs. Don't fret, it still follows the 40,30,30 rule that we are trying to keep for portion control. If you are over (on a 3 block meal plan) just subtract one block each at another meal or add 1 if you are on a 5 block plan.
Almond Joy Oatmeal
1/3 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup water
3 Tbsp egg whites
1/2 Tbsp natural almond butter (I use kirkland)
24 g of chocolate protein powder (I use Orgain from Costco)
5g unsweetened coconut flakes
10 g dark chocolate chips (I use Hershey's special dark)
Mix oats, water, egg whites and microwave for 1-2 minutes
Stir in almond butter, protein powder, and top with coconut flakes and chocolate chips
