This bowl of oats was everything this morning after my workout!
It’s full of good fuel carbs and protein needed to build and retain muscle mass.
I normally eat regular oatmeal and have been feeling blah about it. So I decided to try steel cut oats. It took longer to make that the microwave oats, but so worth it.
