Boast your Oatmeal to pro-training level

Take your Oatmeal to the next level with this a pro-like boost.

 

 

This basic recipe has been used by endurance athletes to weightlifters. They all have their own small variations, but the core is the same. 

When you are looking for a performance food, what can’t go wrong with oatmeal? You can make up your own combinations using this versatile produce, changing the flavour from sweet to savoury, changing the meal time from breakfast to lunch or supper.

Adding egg, avocado and butter will give you a wholesome savoury base on to which you can add your own finishing touches. This base will sit well in your stomach and provide you with sufficient slow-burning calories for your endurance training.

If you are short of time then you can prepare the oatmeal by simply soaking them over night before the cooking stage.
