If you have followed me for a long time on my instagram for awhile, you know my love for oats. I love oats in any shape or form, but something about a warm, comforting bowl of oats on a cold morning always hits the spot.
Oats are a tremendous carbohydrate source but they do lack a bit of protein. Instead of opting for a traditional powder, I decided to throw my Fairlife Nutrition Plan vanilla shake into the mix along with some chia seeds and raspberries for added fiber.
As a nutritionist and a macro coach, protein is where a majority of people lack in their diet. While I do not recommend relying solely on supplements, Fairlife shakes provide a healthy and hefty does of protein (30 grams per bottle!!) to help you reach your goal. as someone who cant eat eggs in the morning due to an intolerance, this has come in handy lately.
This is a balanced meal in the morning that is going to provide a lot of satiety to get you through your morning. This is an unsponsored post, but Fairlife does have a lot of other flavors such as salted caramel (OMG) and chocolate which would be tremendous mixed into your oats.
