If starting your day with more protein at breakfast is a goal of yours, then this oatmeal will hit that mark. Protein is one of the most important nutrients I focus on at breakfast because it sets me up to feel satiated and energized for the day.

If you’ve ever started your morning with carbs and sugar only, maybe you’ve felt the sugar crash an hour later.

Not with this egg white oatmeal!

I am BIG on pre-prep. I cook & bake when I can so that its ready when I need it. In terms of breakfasts, this may mean baking breakfast bars on the weekend or prepping overnight oats the night before. I have never made egg white oats- great lesson.

I love oatmeal in the mornings. It's what I have 99% of the time. And I know alot of people do eggs in their oatmeal- but for some reason it just gives me the creeps! No idea why… I like eggs. I like oatmeal. What gives?

Cool. I've never added egg whites during cooking. Sometimes I just top my oats with 2 sunny-side-up or poached eggs, some fresh herbs, salt and pepper for a savoury oatmeal bowl. I like how the yolks run unto the oats.

Savory oats – that sounds delicious Samatha! I'm not a fan of runny yolks so I'd just cook mine longer. I'll have to try adding some fresh herbs sometime, thanks for the idea.

I have never had egg whites in my oatmeal before. I do think its a great idea to add a bit of extra protein in there.
I am going to have to give this a try! Thanks!

I don't really have time to make stove top oatmeal in the morning. Sometimes I make microwaved oats though! I usually eat something I can grab really fast, like yogurt or waffles that I've made and frozen.

My boyfriend would really like egg white oatmeal though. He's on this protein kick since he's started lifting weights again.
