Protein Oatmeal for those Pumpkin Lovers!

I assume every bodybuilder eats protein oatmeal at some point throughout their life.  Unless their like me and eat them at just about every meal.  While I do love eating them with just some splenda and cinnamon, I do like a change from time to time.  This is my version of  a pumpkin protein oatmeal, better known as Pumpkin Oatein(I know very cleaver huh).

I always eat oatmeal with whey protein as my pre workout meal.  I figured since I have been adding pumpkin to everything these days, I would give this a try.  I was actually amazed how good this really was.  It has been a great addition to my pre workout meal.

A 1/4c. of raw pumpkin is only about 20 calories and about 5 carbs. So your adding great flavor to your oatmeal without adding a ton of calories. If your looking for a nice change to your morning oats or your pre workout meal like me.  I high recommend giving this quick protein oatmeal a try.
