Ive always hated eating breakfast. This is mostly due to my distaste for nearly every breakfast food. I dont like bacon, sausage, french toast, crepes, and for the majority of my life I didnt like eggs or oatmeal either. Talk about picky, right?

 As Ive been losing weight and trying to be healthier, I learned how critical it is to eat breakfast to get my metabolism going each morning. Being so prejudice against breakfast food makes this task kind of hard... So I decided to suck it up and try to eat oatmeal.

Oatmeal is low in calories, and high in fiber which means it keeps you full! What more could I want in a breakfast food? Oh yeah... for it to taste good. I set out on a quest to find some tasty oatmeal. Quaker makes the flavored oatmeal packs, but when I looked at the nutritional facts I realized that all of that flavoring makes the oatmeal much higher in carbs than it needs to be.

Using original oatmeal as a base, then dressing it up yourself using natural ingredients and sweeteners puts you in control of how many carbohydrates youre getting. It also opens up a world of options when it comes to adding in some protein to make it an even heartier meal!

I started experimenting... and out of that experimenting came this mock Reeses Cup Oatmeal. Oh. My. Gosh. Its freaking tasty, and it only takes about 5 minutes to make.

1 package Quaker Original Instant Oatmeal
1/2 tablespoon peanut butter
1/4 scoop Chocolate Triumph Slim
1 teaspoon Trulicious stevia

Prepare oatmeal as the package instructs. Add in protein powder, Trulicious Stevia, and peanut butter. Mix well and allow to sit for 1-2 minutes before eating to give the peanut butter a chance to melt. This recipe has 168 calories, 23 g carbs (thats nearly 10 g less than Quakers flavored instant oatmeal), and 8 g protein!

Whats your favorite way to make oatmeal?
