Peanut Butter Cup Oatmeal.
Hi Everyone, I have AN OATMEAL RECIPE THAT EVEN OATMEAL HATERS WILL LOVE!!! Even the most stubborn taste bud will crave this Peanut Butter Cup Oatmeal.
As I am sure you have heard over and over again, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Why? ENERGY!! Sure, you could have a hot cup of coffee to wake you up, but why not fuel your body with what it needs? Breakfast replenishes the stores of energy and nutrients in your body.
The body’s energy source is glucose. Glucose is broken down and absorbed from the carbohydrates you eat. The body stores most of its energy as fat. But your body also stores some glucose as glycogen, most of it in your liver, with smaller amounts in your muscles.
During times of fasting (not eating), such as overnight, the liver breaks down glycogen and releases it into your bloodstream as glucose to keep your blood sugar levels stable. This is especially important for your brain, which relies almost entirely on glucose for energy.
In the morning, after you have gone without food for as long as 12 hours, your glycogen stores are low. Once all of the energy from your glycogen stores is used up, your body starts to break down fatty acids to produce the energy it needs. But without carbohydrate, fatty acids are only partially oxidised, which can reduce your energy levels.
Eating breakfast boosts your energy levels and restores your glycogen levels ready to keep your metabolism up for the day.
The best way to replenish your body is to feed it grains! Why grains ? Grains contain a ton of fiber that will further help produce energy, keep your digestive system flowing, and help keep you fuller longer.
This Oatmeal Recipe is not only DELICIOUS, but its jam packed with whole grain carbohydrates, protein, and low in fat. The best part is you won’t even realize that you are eating oatmeal! Its more of a warm peanut butter cup dish!
Because this recipe contains has a great combination of carbohydrates and protein, its also a perfect pre-workout option!
