Still, it’s one of my favourite post-cycle breakfasts, and as taste goes, it’s delicious.
It also packs a punch with a good 30 grams of protein – great for muscle repair and knocking hunger on the head.
Studies show high protein breakfasts (around 25-30 grams) help regulate appetite for the rest of the day, which can lead to eating fewer calories in later meals. Higher protein breakfasts also keep blood glucose on a more even keel, helping regulate energy levels.
(If you’ve just finished a workout, whey protein is pretty great for muscle repair too)
Ingredients (serves 1, generously!)
- 40 grams steel cut porridge oats
- 10 grams chia seeds – about 2 teaspoons
- 200ml milk of your choice
- 1 scoop / 25g chocolate whey protein
- 50 grams Greek strained yoghurt (I used Total Greek 0%)
- 80g / couple handfuls frozen mixed berries
1. Weigh out all the ingredients, tip into a large bowl and mix together.
2. Cover, pop in the fridge and leave overnight (see, I told you it was simple)
3. Give it a good stir in the morning, tip into a fresh bowl and enjoy! Travels well for breakfast on the move.
