This is a great breakfast that will give you energy! (and possibly a run for the washroom). OAT GROATS. Here is a tid bit of information on the groats. They contain high-quality protein, seven B vitamins, calcium, fiber and unsaturated fats. I had a bowl before I ran the Harry Rosen 8k run for prostate cancer. I had so much energy !!!
Oat groats are whole, minimally processed oats. Because they have not been extensively processed, they retain a high nutritional value, and they can be used in a variety of ways. Many markets carry oat groats, often in the cereal section or in the bulk area, if the market sells things in bulk.
So before you go to that high energy booty camp training or a long run get your groats in your tummy. I usually make a larger batch so I have some for a few days.
– 1 cup of groats to 2 cups water .
– Throw some almond milk in, raisins, almonds, cinnamon, honey or stevia. (i don’t measure cause we all like it either sweeter or not. Use your own judgment and enjoy! – CS xo
