I bet chia seeds are terrific in oatmeal. Need to try that!

I used to throw a couple scoops of vanilla Protein Powder in it when I was cooking it (this wasn't a single serving - more like three or four (it's been forever since I've made it, so I can't remember)). Loved it. I'd often top about 1/2 C of it with some Light & Fit yogurt. This conversation has got me thinking about it again..

One of my favorites is baked oatmeal with blueberries. I'm gonna put some chia in that...it already tastes like a blueberry muffin. Very yummy stuff, and if you make a pan of it, you can cut up squares and put them in the freezer to zap in the microwave. I do regular oats, lots of egg whites, cinnamon, vanilla, baking powder, almond milk, some cottage cheese....blend this up....and throw it in a pan with blueberries and nuts if you like them...splenda or Monkfruit. You can use bananas, dried cherries, cranberries or even low cal maple Syrup. Chia would work great in it for even more Fiber and protien.

oh yes - I used to put cinnamon in mine as well (along with the Protein powder). I think I'll play around with this today - you've inspired me!

That sound delish!! Where are you getting these recipes from? Some people say Pinterest, but I am not on that.

So we got the Magic Spoons today and here is my honest opinion. I bought the four box set and almost choked when I paid 10 bucks a box for Breakfast Cereal, but everything Protein is high and I am starting to get use to that. I also eat such small amounts this is enough cereal to last me two months or more, probably more than two months so it really isn't that bad in the big scheme of things.

I have never been a super big fan of cold cereal but I am sick to death of eggs right now and needing to change things up a tad here and there, it isn't low calorie but I am not counting calories right now so thats not an issue.

I tried the fake fruit loops in almond milk and they stayed pretty crunchy, they tasted pretty close to fruit loops, they do get a little Gummy when you chew them really well, I am a texture freak and that is a little different but as far as a high protein food low carb fake fruit loop I give them a 7.5 out of 10.

My hubby tried the frosted O's and gave them an 8 out of 10.

I am not going to say everyone will love them and I will not eat them every day for every meal but they make a sweet crunchy breakfast when your sick of eggs and the protein is high, carbs are low and the taste is pretty good :)
