Why you need proats and zoats in your life
It’s well known that eating oats as part of a healthy diet regime can give you that much needed energy boost, making your day a lot less tiring and much more productive. But the world of oats has become much more exciting and inventive. Additional add-ins to your oaty porridge, bircher muesli – or however you tend to enjoy this sumptuous superfood – can not only give a vast variety of tastes and textures, but can up the amount of nutrients you get from it, too.
Proats and zoats have become insanely popular with nutritionists and healthy lifestyle promoters. But how exactly do you benefit from adding protein powder or zucchini – courgette to the Brits – to your daily oats?
The pros of proats
Whether it’s a trip to the gym, a dip in the pool or even a game in the courts, if you’re looking to tone up and build muscle, it’s crucial to pair the ultimate diet with your exercise routine.
That’s where proats come in handy. The combination of oats and protein powder provide you with the perfect mix of carbohydrates and protein, that can help you and your muscles recover after a tough workout. The quicker you recover, the quicker you can get into another session.
Spice up your bowl of proats, with delicious toppings such as apple and cinnamon, cacao and banana, or even dried fruit, nuts and a dollop of honey.
The wonders of zoats
With both oats and zucchini/courgettes bursting with fibre, enjoying a blend of the two first thing in the morning can provide you with almost a third of your recommended daily intake. High fibre breakfasts not only help to jump-start your metabolism, but satisfy hunger cravings longer than other foods. The fibreful courgette also helps to stabilise blood sugar levels.
Zoats can help to create a larger, more filling breakfast, without the excessive amount of calories. Why not try a bowl of zoats for yourself?
