15 year old girl from England, hoping to inspire others to cut out the processed carbs + artificial substances from their diet.
Oh and I also want more ab definition and tumblr is one motherfucka of a motivator.

THE SAVOURY OATMEAL EXPERIMENT

 

BASIC RECIPE:

  • 25g or 1/4 cup of oats
  • 3 egg whites beaten in 150ml hot water
  • a quarter of a low sodium vegetable/chicken stock cube

Put everything in a bowl, microwave it for 5 minutes or until everything is cooked. Stir it every 1 minute, so the egg whites don’t go lumpy.
If it’s too thick at the end, add some milk/water and stir it in (this will also cool down the porridge).

CONCLUSION

Not bad. All of them were pretty good. The Prawn and Pea + Tomato and Bell Pepper ones were my favourites out of the 5.
BUT, oats cooked with milk, bananas and cinnamon will always be my ultimate favourite oatmeal. 

Oh and I’ve also concluded that I’m a loser for making this post lol.
