Is there really anything better than a warm bowl of oatmeal on a cold fall morning?? For me, oats are the ultimate comfort food. They’re warm, cozy, and so filling. Especially when you pile them high with tons of toppings or fresh fruit! The only downside to oatmeal is that it’s a total carb overload. Now, don’t get me wrong – carbs are great, but in order to keep you feeling full and have a complete meal – you need protein and healthy fats to go with them!
That’s why I came up with this egg white oatmeal recipe! Years ago I used to count my macros religiously (I’m talking measure everything out on a food scale, use my fitness pal to track everything kinda thing) Almost every single day, I had a hard time getting in my protein. I LOVE carbs, so it’s always easy for me to overload on those – but truthfully don’t really love meat or protein shakes. In an effort to get my protein in, I had this great idea that I would just plug my nose and chug egg whites at the beginning of the day. They are pasteurized so it was totally safe, they would be packed with protein, I’d be full all morning, it was so easy… it was going to be GREAT and I was basically a genius.
Have you ever tried drinking egg whites? I would highly recommend you NEVER do. God, it was so disgusting. One sip and I realized this was hands down one of the dumbest ideas I had ever come up with. I decided I would never do that again and then I was back at square one.. wondering how the heck to get my protein in. I figured it might be worth it to try mixing the egg whites into oatmeal… and it turns out it makes them SO delicious!
The egg whites make the oatmeal super fluffy, and add a ton of protein to them, making them the perfect breakfast. The best part is – you can’t even taste it! Especially when you load up the oats with all your favorite toppings. You gotta try it!
