Oatmeal is one of the best sources of soluble fiber, and this version is high protein, too.
1 cup nonfat milk or plain soy milk
pinch of salt
1/3 cup quick-cooking rolled oats (1 minute, not instant)
2 scoops French Vanilla Formula 1 Nutritional Shake Mix
few dashes of cinnamon
1/2 cup apple slices, raspberries or blackberries, fresh or thawed from frozen or 1/2 sliced banana
Pour the milk or soy milk into a medium sauce pan, add the salt, and place over medium-high heat. Bring slowly to the boiling point, and as soon as the milk boils, add the rolled oats. Turn the heat down to low, and cook the oats, stirring, until thickened. Stir in the Formula 1 powder, the cinnamon, and the fruit and stir another minute or two until heated through, but do not boil. If the cereal is too thick, add a little extra nonfat milk or soy milk.

Yum! Yum! Yum! I love strawberries, and it is in season right now. So local stores have them here for sale, and inexpensive for a 1 lb (inexpensive for Maui, HI anyway). I happen to have balsamic vinegar sitting around from my mother-in-laws last visit to Maui...and though I've tried other recipes to incorporate it into meals, I haven't liked what I tried - UNTIL NOW! This is sooo delicious so don't dismiss the idea if you aren't a fan of balsamic vinegar (as I wasn't) until you've tried this recipe.
I did not create this recipe. Thank you to Kellie (and Melissa) for sharing this recipe on Facebook! :-) I love salads again!
Recipe below makes about 1/2 cup. So feel free to double or quadruple the recipe if need be ;)

Here is my quick and easy dinner tonight. Brown rice does take a while to cook, so I did that after work (you could also cook a batch early in the week to have during the week).
Then I just used a little bit of olive oil to stir fry the shrimp and asparagus sprinkled with some garlic sea salt (I also mixed a little in my brown rice).
Cut up the avocado. Scooped rice into bowl and plated everything else.
Yummy and very fullfilling!
4 oz of shrimp (I actually used more, like 5 oz) ~ all depends on your needs
7 stalks of asparagus (or more)
1/2 - 1 cup of brown rice (cooked)
1/2 an avocado
garlic sea salt (or any other seasoning you want.
olive oil (for stir fry)
Put about 1/2 Tbsp in frying pan
Stir fry the asparagus, add shrimp and cook until shrimp is all pink (don't overcook otherwise you'll have rubbery shrimp!)
While all that is cooking, cut avocado into wedges.
Put it all on a plate and that's it!
Note: You could also throw the rice in the pan and stir everything together :) My meal was 30 g of protein!
