Everyday Bulking Oats

  This is my go-to, everyday oatmeal recipe for bulking.

This is my go-to, everyday oatmeal recipe for bulking.

I have been seriously bulking to put on lean body mass since March, 2017. I have learned a lot this year about what it takes to put on healthy and strong body mass. It takes A LOT of food, especially if you are eating a whole food and mostly plant based diet. The volume of food can sometimes be overwhelming, but after training my body to intake larger meals and eat more frequently... I'm seeing the results I want on the scale, in the mirror, and at the gym.

This oatmeal recipe is my go-to morning breakfast. I eat a variation of this almost everyday. Sometimes I vary what superfoods I put on top or mix in. Sometimes I use the cacao and sometimes I don't. If I want to be 100% plant based, I do not include Greek Yogurt. Overall, it's a vary adaptable recipe and is a great way to pack in a big number of nutrient dense calories to start your day of bulking. Not trying to put on mass? Take down the amount of oats to your liking to lessen the calories.
