Good Morning Oats

It's always a good morning when I start my day with oats and worship. Pairing the two together warms me up from the inside out. I've shared how I like to combine my egg whites and oats in one chunky dish before, but I thought I'd show you exactly what I'm talking about.

Quick Note: Some of you have asked why my Crash Course to Bikini Program suggests egg whites and not the full egg.

Don't get me wrong, I agree that the yolk in the egg is nutritious and healthy, but in this program, we are focusing on shedding body fat quick. Forgetting the egg yolk in this 4-week meal plan allows you to consume the same amount of protein with less calories and fat. You're able to consume the nutrients the yolk provides from other foods in the meal plan without the extra fat/calories.

In your normal diet, I'd recommend a 3:1 ratio of egg whites to complete egg. If you can't get over throwing out the yolk (or you have issues dropping some of the yolk in your bowl and getting it all over everything like me), either opt for some liquid egg whites or use only 2 full eggs instead of my recommended 3 egg whites.

Okay, back to the feature presentation ... my delicious, hot and steamy oat-cake-bowl. 

When I haven't already prepared a big pot of steel cut oats to last me each morning for a week, I'll get out my bag of organic rolled oats. I actually prefer the taste of the rolled oats, even though they don't swell up as big as steel cut oats.

  1. Measure out 1/2 cup of oats in your bowl and cover with 1 cup of water. Sprinkle some cinnamon and stevia, and mix it all around. Then, add your egg whites. Mix it again until everything looks to be one consistency.
  2. Cover in the microwave for 1 minute. Take it out, stir it, and cook again for another minute. Mix it all up one more time and pop in the microwave for 30 second intervals again and again until your oat bowl contains the factor of fluffiness that you prefer. ... Seriously, they're almost puffy ... and cute. Hehe!
  3. Top with more cinnamon and some guiltless pancake syrup. You'll be licking the bowl and totally satisfied since this meal is filling and nutritious!

Say "good morning" because when you eat these chunky oats, you're going to be in a good mood.

Try it paired with a mug of hot coffee (mixed with almond milk and stevia) or chilled java on summer mornings. Crank up some Kari Jobe or Hillsong tunes, and thank God for the day he has made and for the unique purpose he has for you. 

Have you tried pairing your egg whites and oats before? What do you think?
