A steaming bowl of oatmeal is a healthy, cholesterol-lowering breakfast that tastes great on cold mornings. Give your oatmeal extra punch by stirring in a scoop of protein powder. Protein helps to rebuild damaged muscles and gives you stamina to keep going until lunchtime. The combination of oatmeal and protein powder can also help you feel full longer, making it an asset for dieters. There is no need to add protein powder to the water while cooking the oats. You can simply add a scoop to the bowl just before eating.
