Recipe: Power Oatmeal - 03/12/11 04:53 PM

1 Cup instant oatmeal
1/2 Cup Currants
1 scoop unflavored whey protein powder
1 1/2 Cup water

Mix all dry ingredients, add boiling water, let sit for 5-10 mins then enjoy.

This stuff gives you an amazing boost in energy and is an excellent recovery food for weight lifting. You could even put in a scoop of Dextrose powder to help replenish your glycogen stores even faster.

Note, I under hydrate my oatmeal because I can't eat it if it's not slightly chewy. You might want to add more water.
