An all-time classic for anyone doing fitness is oats. More specifically, these delicious protein-rich oats! They're really tasty with a variety of ingredients, either simple or complicated, leaving you full and happy :) Oats are full of fibre and precious plant-based proteins, making them a great way to start the day. I personally love combining it with a protein supplement and peanut to increase the protein content and the unsaturated fat content. And I love cinnamon, but feel free to replace it with coconut flakes, cocoa powder or something else. Add sliced bananas or other fruits for a more fruity taste.

  1. Place the oats and the water in a medium-sized bowl and add water and salt
