oatmeal-baked

Ok, I would like to start this post off by saying that I am addicted to this oatmeal. Like it’s really an issue. I’ve made this stuff 3 days in a row! and for the first two days I ate the whole thing within a few hours or I ate the whole thing in one whole sitting. Today I maintained self control though, only ate half this time 😀 saved the last half for tomorrow’s breakfast 🙂

pb-baked-oatmeal

This baked oatmeal is quickly turning into one of my favorite meals. Mostly because it’s super nummy and really easy to make. I love easy recipes because, let’s be honest, i’m pretty lazy 😀

Chocolate Peanut Butter Nicecream Protein Power bowl

 

20160315_164620-1

My mom has been constantly telling me that i should stop eating vegan because i am not getting enough protein. She claims that she even thinks my hair is thinning out from protein deficiency (ugh). Well you know what mamasita? Watch me eat this protein power bowl, because it is literally overflowing with protein, AND IT’S NOT FROM ANIMAL PRODUCTS, IT’S FROM THE FREAKING BEAUTY THAT IS PLANTS! 😛

anyways, I went in the kitchen this evening to make some nice cream for dinner and decided, well heck, i’ll go fancy with it! I absolutely love how this turned out!! I chowed it down in literally 5 minutes, it was that good! I wish i would have made a power bowl sooner! I see them online all the time and they always make my mouth water lol 😀

 

Also, in case you were wondering  what protein powder i used in this recipe, it is Hemp Pro 50 plant based protein supplement. I was searching for a vegan protein powder to get more protein in my diet (hello,mom) and I found this beauty at Sprouts Farmers Market about week ago. It has been AMAZING for nicecream! It is wonderful because it has 15 grams of protein, 2.5 grams of omega 3 and 6, 7 grams of fiber, and NO ADDED SUGAR! Literally the only ingredient in this beauty is raw cold milled hemp protein powder!

Sadly, i am almost out of this already. I got this near my dad’s house in Houston one weekend and now i’m back at my mom’s. Their are like NO health food stores where my mom lives, so finding things like vegan protein powders prove to be quite difficult. Dang i should really move to my dad’s house one of these days 😛
