Peanut Butter Oatmeal
Rolled oats are a delicious way to start your day. The problem: rolled oats are higher in carbs than some of the other breakfast options you may choose such as eggs and breakfast meats.
This breakfast recipe is a great option following a morning workout. Glucose disposal is greater (i.e. increased insulin sensitivity) in the post-exercise period (approximately 30-90 minutes after exercise) making it a good opportunity to enjoy a few extra carbs. The additional carbs will also help to replenish glycogen stores (storage form of carbs) in your muscles and liver.
