My Favorite Oat Mix

Are you on the hunt for a nutritious and energizing breakfast to kickstart your workout? Look no further than my favorite pre-workout secret weapon – the ultimate oatmeal mix. Packed with a delightful combination of oats, nuts, seeds, and dried fruits, this power-packed meal is the ideal way to prepare your body for a successful training session.

The Power of Oats: Oats have long been hailed as a breakfast staple, and for a good reason. They are rich in complex carbohydrates, providing a steady release of energy that sustains you throughout your workout. Oats are also a fantastic source of dietary fiber, which keeps you feeling full and satisfied while promoting healthy digestion. Plus, they offer a plethora of essential vitamins and minerals, such as manganese, phosphorus, and magnesium, to support overall well-being.

Nuts and Seeds for Added Crunch and Nutrition: To elevate the nutritional profile and flavor of your pre-workout oatmeal, I add a variety of nuts and seeds. These tiny powerhouses are packed with healthy fats, protein, and an array of vitamins and minerals and provide a satisfying crunch to each bite!

Dried Fruit for Natural Sweetness: Add a little bit of natural sweetness with you favorite dried fruits.

Customizing Your Perfect Pre-Workout Oatmeal Mix: One of the best aspects of this pre-workout oatmeal mix is its versatility. You can tailor it to your preferences and dietary needs. The possibilities are endless!

Preparing Your Pre-Workout Breakfast: Creating this mix is as simple as combining the ingredients and giving them a quick stir. I usually pre mix my ingredients in a mason jar or container ahead of time so its ready to use when I am rushed in the mornings. My favorite ways to enjoy the mix is mixed in with yogurt muesli style or cooking them on a stove top as a more flavorful oatmeal.
