Quick tip: this recipe is great, because you can make it quickly. I usually just eyeball the ingredients. Dumping some oatmeal in a bowl, pouring in around double that amount in water, and throwing it in the microwave. Last 40 seconds I throw on some frozen wild blueberries. Finally, I throw a few scoops of plain greek yogurt on top, as well as flaxseed and hemp seeds.
Finally, if you really want to bulk up, don’t be afraid of adding optionals! Especially the calorie dense dark chocolate.. aim for higher cocao (somewhere around 85%) and low sugar. Generally, the higher the cocao, the higher the mineral content. Again, dark chocolate is dense in calories. Hint hint: A nice boost when you’re trying to put on some mass!
