1. Banana-Nut Butter
Mix in a spoonful of protein-heavy peanut, almond, or sunflower butter to make your oats even heartier and more filling, then top with potassium-packed banana slices, which can help you maintain your level of electrolytes and prevent muscle cramping during workouts. Finally, sprinkle a handful of flax seeds for a dose of Omega 3 fatty acids—they can help prevent inflammation and reduce the risk of chronic diseases, such as arthritis, heart disease, and cancer.
