Not all of us have the luxury of a kitchen here at Rollins, so I am letting you in on my go-to breakfast, which only requires a microwave, some ingredients, a bowl and a spoon(ful of delight). If that has not convinced you to make this yet, what about knowing this dish contains 28 grams of protein and will keep you fueled through your morning classes? Although this oatmeal recipe has vegetables in it, which some of you may not be used to, I promise once you give it a try, there is no turning back!
½ cup quick-cooking oats
1 scoop collagen (optional source of added protein)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoon chia seeds (optional but packed with omega-3’s and fiber)
1 ½ cups riced cauliflower
¾ cup water
3 tablespoon liquid egg whites
Toppings (measure by eye): fruit and nut butter
Add oats, collagen, cinnamon, chia seeds, riced cauliflower and water to a microwave safe bowl and cook in the microwave for 2 minutes.
Pour in egg whites and stir until well combined. Cook for another minute until fluffy.
Finish off with your favorite toppings; mine are banana and nut butter.
I understand college students can be on a tight budget, so if you would like to invest in some collagen, you can use the discount code “SPOONFULDELIGHT” at https://www.furtherfood.com/shop/.
