Super Food...

This is the most nutrient dense meal I eat. I don't eat it enough, and decided to have this for dessert tonight:

Jenn's Oatmeal Supernova

1 packet Quaker Simple Harvest oatmeal (prepared with water)
1/2 cup skim milk
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp pumpkin seeds
2 tsp sunflower seeds
1 tbsp almond butter
1 tbsp dried fruit mix
1 scoop vanilla protein powder



Mix and dig in! This meal would be the ultimate pre-workout meal, or BREAKFAST. Please remember to eat a nice, healthy, nutrient dense breakfast. Carbs and protein. This fuels up your metabolism and gives you energy for the day. Plus you'll be less likely to binge, eat badly, cheat, or snack throughout the day. :)

In a study conducted by the American Heart Association (AHA), researchers found that among the 2,831 study volunteers, those who ate breakfast were less likely to be obese and to develop type 2 diabetes than those who did not eat breakfast.


Nutrient Analysis:
682 calories
35g fat (all good fats!) (40-50g per day is recommended)
3mg cholesterol
175mg sodium (2400 US recommended 1600 UK recommended per day)
75g carbohydrate (130 g per day is recommended)
33g sugar (no more than 50g per day of refined sugars recommended)
15g fiber (25g per day is recommended)
41g protein (84 g per day is recommended)


*I think this estimation of nutrient info is a little high - I couldn't find exact information on the dried fruit mix I use and I don't measure it, and I also think the estimation on the nuts is a bit high because I don't measure them in grams.

Great post about superfood. Hey what about aronia berry? Even though it is still not that popular yet, like acai or pomegranate it contains health properties equivalent to them.
