Hold me over oatmeal


This bowl you see here?  It was something special.  I am determined to figure out the exact caloric and macronutrient breakdown because it kept me full for HOURS without weighing me down at all.  I finished it and felt both light as a feather and completely satisfied.  That’s a hard line to walk. 

So what was in it?

  • 1 cup dry whole rolled oats
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 fried eggs

I never wait for the water to boil before adding oats, I just throw them in at the same time as the water, blast the stove and wait for it to boil.  Then I turn down the heat and stir as needed until the oats are soft and done.

On the other burner I cooked two eggs, which I meant to do over easy, but I clumsily crushed the yolks when I flipped them.  So they were pretty well done.


Avo, nooch, & oats…waiting for the protein.


For the win.

Carbs. Fats. Protein.  Check x3. 

All macronutrients covered in a deliciously perfect ratio. 


I could see this being my breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the next week or so.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you…

    loooove savory oats! I had this combo with the addition of kale this week for dinner. It was fantastic!

    Haha I was curious too/bored waiting for my gym to open to do my long run (it’s 11 degrees outside…) and its – Calories: 595, Carbs: 62g, Fat: 27g, Protein 29g. I also just ate some oats, but mine were plain with half an older banana (soooo sweet and delicious) and a little PB! pre-run fuel, gotta love those oats!

    Drool!! Thats looks soooo good. It looks super filling too and you say it didn’t weight you down or anything?

    Hmm. this is certainly an interesting combo.. Unfortunately cooked oats have made it out of my rotation. For whatever reason I can’t stand them anymore. The only want I can eat them now is in overnight oats or in protein pancakes form..

    I’m a huge fan of runny fried eggs on my oatmeal 🙂 I’ve never added avocado to the mix though (why didn’t I think of that?!) Definitely making that for breakfast tomorrow.

    cool! thanks for the info. 600 kcals must be my sweet spot – w a 2:1:1 ratio of carbs to fats to protein.

    nope. seriously, not at all.

    Amazing! Really anything with nutritional flakes and avocado is to die for. This will actually be the perfect thing to feed my bf who has a never ending appetite. Happy Sat!

    I’ve never understood savory oatmeal, its just not for me. But its meals like this that make me want to try it again! Looks delicious, but I dont know if I can make it over the hump from sweet to savory.

    I need to try this, because lately, my usual 1/2 cup of dry outs with banana, almond butter, and flax doesn’t fill me up anymore…You’re breakfast looks extremely delicious and filling!

    I applaud you on this one! I am a weird eater – I don’t like to mix too many flavors. In fact, my husband bought a juicer and although I am vegan, I can not deal with juices that have more than 3 veggies in them! Fruit juices I can tolerate a few more but… My mother used to joke when I was a kid that if I could eat off of baby dishes (you know the ones with the little dividers for the different foods) my whole life, I would. LOL!!

    Anyway, the point is that it took a lot of strength to read the entire entry and look at the pictures. See? I’m growing!!!

    Savoury oats = genius! I totally need to try this out 🙂

    This sounds ridiculously good. I might make it for lunch or dinner sometime soon. I’ve made savory oats with a poached egg, romano cheese, and olive oil. Yum!

  14. janetha

    wow, yeah. that oatmeal looks so freaking good.

  15. Yolie @ Practising Wellness

    Wow…that looks soso good. I am really really craving savoury oats JUST like this, now. 600 calories is my sweet spot too, I think! I need FUEL, lol! 🙂 xyx
