PB&J Oatmeal

You can’t lift heavy, if you have a weak breakfast. Nor can you tackle a busy schedule with an empty tank. 

Breakfast needs 3-5 different food groups to be balanced.  

Today, I’ll workout in less than 2 hours after my morning meal, so it needs to be a heavy hitter in energy providing nutrients. 


Ultra filtered milk gives me a protein and dairy (which also tops off my electrolytes for sweating). Old fashioned oats, with a spoonful of peanut butter and jelly. Slicing a banana over the top. 

If you’re wondering “where does the jelly fit in,” well.... my conservative 1 teaspoon of homemade strawberry jelly for flavor doesn’t fit anywhere but my belly. Remember, controlling every calorie isn’t the mission, my aim is to eat a variety of food groups to provide me a variety of nourishment.
