Oatless Oats & Sweat

10 Aug

I have been hearing so much about oat-less..yes oat-less..oatmeal that I decided to give it a go yesterday morning.  It exists and is totally paleo friendly and approved.  I am not paleo, although I have been contemplating doing the whole30 or at least trying it. Come September it may be a very big possibility but we’ll see..anyways here is the recipe for OATLESS oatmeal.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • 3 egg whites
  • 2 Tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Whisk together egg whites and milk
  2. Add in flaxseed, cinnamon, mashed banana, and vanilla
  3. Whisk until completely combined
  4. Pour mixture into a medium saucepan and cook over medium-low heat
  5. Constantly stir the mixture and scrape the bottom of the saucepan until you reach a cooked oatmeal consistency. The cooking should take no more than 5 minutes.
  6. Scoop into a bowl and top with toppings!

Without any toppings it comes out to be around 200 calories.

Circuits are my favorite absolute favorite kind of workout and I’m always up for trying and creating new ones.  The other day I came up with this one which is a combination of strength exercises using a medicine ball with some jump roping in-between each move.  This workout is about 30 minutes long and definitely gets your heart rate up!
