This is one of the most asked about meals I eat... The cake oats!
I first started to eat my oats like this due to some stomach discomfort whilst digesting certain carbs. Ultimately it came from my mental and physical state when I was consuming the meal... I was always stressed post training and in a rush between clients at the gym.
Before looking into this and realising I just had to wind down and slow down whilst eating to aid the digestion of any meal I was having. What it did make me research is the effect of cooking and cooling certain carbohydrates.
Cooking and cooling starchy carbs causes a change in the make up of the carbohydrate and the starch takes on properties of resistant starch when cooled. This acts more like fibre when being eaten and passed through the digestive system. A great tip for anyone who is lacking in fibre or is trying to manage blood sugar levels!
60-80g Oats of your choice
200-300ml Almond or Coconut Milk (to cook) 30g SF Nutrition ProWhey or Vegan Protein 100g Greek Yoghurt or Kefir
100g Frozen Blueberries
Cook Oats on the hob with almond milk until desired consistency.
Transfer oats from pot into dish suitable for the fridge/freezer.
Stir frozen blueberries through oats and pack whole mixture down evenly into bowl/container.
Leave oats to cool in the fridge for 2-3 hours... if you need them done quicker I put mine in
the freezer for 20-30 mins.
In a separate bowl, mix SF Nutrition protein powder of choice and Yoghurt/Kefir.
Once oats have cooled, top with your protein/yoghurt mix.
Add additional toppings like desiccated coconut or nuts for added flavour.
