Re: Sick of oatmeal, any other carb suggestions for quick Zone breakfast?

Look up a good recipe for baked oatmeal. it has eggs in it and tastes eons better than your normal oatmeal. Stores really well too, just put a little milk on it when it's cold. Amazing.

Re: Sick of oatmeal, any other carb suggestions for quick Zone breakfast?

mmmm just made the pancakes -- I'm DEFINITELY a fan! I mixed 1.5 oz dry outs, 2 whole eggs, 1 c strawberries, and some chocolate protein powder (4 blocks). I added a little water and let it sit over night, then made them this morning. YUM! Don't think I'd make money off of them, but they work for me.

Glad you liked it... I also sometimes use the Pumpkin Butter spread from Trader Joe's on top.

Re: Sick of oatmeal, any other carb suggestions for quick Zone breakfast?

My favorite breakfast so far is from a recent men's health.

Sliced Avocado
Sliced Tomato
Wheat Toast with mustard spread
Spinach leaves
Stack everything on top of the bread, and drizzle with olive oil.

Win.

Re: Sick of oatmeal, any other carb suggestions for quick Zone breakfast?

The following is also my favorite oatmeal recipe..though i dont know how it falls into the Zone category as i dont follow all that.

Cook your oats, and then put it all in a bowl with a beaten egg, mix it all up with some sliced almonds or crushed walnuts/pecans, whatever kind of nuts, milk, berries of choice, and flaxseed, and whey protein optional. Throw it in the microwave (or maybe back in the pot to cook for a bit, egg mainly), take it out, and top with some yogurt and sliced banana.

Talk about a full meal. So good though and a perfect pre-workout morning meal.

Try buckwheat instead of oats. Makes a nice change and has a nutty consistency. Cook in the same way. Barley is another option. It was the food of the gladiators.
