Back in October, I posted a recipe for "fauxtmeal" - a low-carb, grain-free alternative to standard oatmeal. I still eat it regularly, but wanted to try something new - something filling, with a little more protein that I could eat before or after a long run or intense kettlebell session.
The key? Liquid egg whites. Yep, we're doing things Rocky style. Instead of dealing with raw whole eggs, though, I'm using carton egg whites, which are pasteurized and safe to consume. Lots of protein, not a lot of calories. One bowl of this hearty fauxtmeal has 24g of protein - if I need more, I can always add some unflavored whey protein isolate powder to the mix. If you need a little more fat, add a Tbsp or 2 of heavy cream. For a little sweetness, a light drizzle of sugar-free breakfast syrup does the trick for me. Today, though - just a light sprinkle of cinnamon was needed.
Sounds weird, but it's super easy to prepare. If you can dump a bunch of stuff into a pan and whisk for a few minutes, you'll have a quick and easy, protein-packed breakfast that will keep you full, full of energy and ready for whatever the day has in store for you!
