Breakfast options

I have noticed is that the life of a trainer isn't all that different from being a student. University students and personal trainers rarely get enough sleep and must find ways to eat either on the run or very quickly. as a result they resort to fast food to get them through their hunger.

A healthier solution to the easy fast food options is to opt for natural foods that can be created in minutes. One of my favorite quick fix meals before I get to my first 6am client is my cinnamon oatmeal crunch breakfast. The recipe is super simple and is sure to keep you going through out the day.

1/2 cup slow rolled oats
2 teaspoons almond slivers
1/2 cup organic cream
dash cinnamon
dash splenda or stevia sweetener
1/2 green apple sliced thinly

Directions: Soak oatmeal the night before, in the morning as soon as you wake up, turn the stove to high and boil the oatmeal. Allow the oatmeal to cook for 20 minutes as you wash your face and brush your teeth.

Once the oatmeal is cooked, add the rest of th ingredients and enjoy. It really is that simple.
