Protein Packed Oatmeal

My nutritionist at Parsley Health told me it sounded like I wasn’t getting enough protein (for me) in the morning so I switched to this and it has helped me so much with energy, cravings and hopefully will help with hormones (Dr. Aviva Romm is on the podcast next week talking protein’s role in hormone production). Anyway, here’s my method:⁣


+ 1/4 cup buckwheat oats (I use Bob's Red Mill)
+ 1 scoop protein powder (I use Ritual)
+ 2 tbsp chia seeds ⁣
+ 2 tbsp flax meal ⁣
+ 1 tbsp flax seeds⁣
+ Handful of grain free granola (either my own or Paleonola)
+ 1 scoop peanut butter or other nut/seed butter ⁣
+ Banana or berries ⁣


1. For the oats I just add some water (eyeball it and add more as needed or follow the directions on the bag) I add the chia seeds to the buckwheat while it’s cooking (takes about 5 minutes on low heat)⁣

2. Once it’s cooked I add the protein powder and usually a little more water to help blend it in well ⁣

3. Then I add flax and hemp seeds, whatever fruit and nut butter I’m using and that’s it!
