As athletes, your body craves food to help restore what was lost during a tough game and rebuild energy you will continue to need for those to come. While we all LOVE food, often times we avoid making a meal, resulting in a lack of food intake throughout the day. Time is precious, however so if your performance!
When putting together a simple and quick meal there are three categories we aim to hit: protein, carbs, and healthy fats. A meal that is both easy, nutritious and fueling- overnight oats! This meal requires little effort and minimal ingredients, allowing for a complete grab and go meal!
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 or 1 whole banana
1/4 cup berries of choice
1/2 tbsp nut butter of choice
1/2 scoop FEM Power Protein Powder, or preferred protein powder
1/2 cup almond milk or milk of choice
Place oats into a reusable container or for extra goodness, an empty peanut butter jar! Directly after oats are placed in jar, pour protein powder on top. Lightly mix oats and protein powder together. Pour milk in jar, place cut up fruit right in the jar or container with the nut butter. Once complete, screw the lid on, place inside refrigerator. Let mixture sit for at least 3 hours- best to make this recipe the night before and allow it to sit in the refrigerator until the next morning. Once chilled, stir mixture together and enjoy with a spoon!
