The Perfect Porridge
You only have to put slightly too much/too little milk/water into your porridge to make it too stodgy or watery and ruin the whole meal. This recipe will give you the perfect porridge every time and a very quick, very simple, fat-free meal.
Carbs – 30g Protein – 28g Fat - 0g Cals – 235
50g or ½ cup of oats
1 scoop of protein powder, whichever flavour you like. I like to use chocolate flavour
Pretty much anything else you like but remember these will add to the overall calories and macros. Here are some ideas: Cinnamon, peanut butter, fruit, orange essence.
o Put the oats in a bowl
o Put the water in the shaker, add the protein powder and shake
o Pour the shake over the oats
o Microwave for 1.30
o Stir and let it cool for a few minutes while the oats soak up more of the liquid and finish cooking
o Add whatever else you like and serve
Ø A general rule of thumb to achieve this consistency is to use 100ml of water for every 25g or ¼ cup of oats
Ø You will also need to adjust the cooking time if adding more oats. I add an extra 30 seconds on for every extra 25g or 1/4 cup of oats
