F U E L E D F R I D A Y 🍵Oatmeal does not have to be boring. Our trail running friend Charity (@c_dubbs_run) has come up with the perfect oatmeal. She has found several ways to make it- dare we say- appealing and crave-worthy. 🙌🏼 Oats are a pretty dreamy whole grain for everyone, but especially for us runners. High in fiber and iron, and a good source of soluble fiber (linked to heart health), they are very easy to make at home or on the road.

My favorite running clothes company rabbit is featuring my recipe for Perfect Oatmeal today, which my family makes almost every day. You can check it out here. (And read a great review of their gear here!)
There’s a second secret way to make perfect oatmeal, too. Have you ever heard of steel cut oats? Same grain as regular oatmeal, but instead of rolling the groat, its chopped into a few pieces. I personally much prefer the texture and stomach-filling properties of steel cut oats, but I don’t love the prep time involved. Who has 60 minutes to make oats in the morning? Exactly.
So here’s the trick. Just before you go to bed, heat up a pot of water. Once its boiling, add the steel cut oats and let cook at a rollin for 2 minutes. Turn it off, go to bed. And in the morning, give the pot a stir, heat up those oats, flavor to your liking, and eat.
Proportions per serving
1/4 cup steel cut oats
slightly less than 1 cup water
