Gorilla Press Power Oatmeal

Feel the Power!
Inspired by one of my all-time favorite wrestlers, the Ultimate Warrior, this is one of my go-to breakfast recipes. It is adopted from Mike Dolce’s Breakfast Bowl, and can be manipulated many different ways to suit your individual tastes. I pair this delicious power oatmeal with a Razor’s Edge Scramble for a high-protein breakfast that fuels me for my early afternoon weight-lifting session. Next time you’re thinking about taking in a highly processed pre-workout supplement, stick with real food instead. Get in the kitchen and make a wise decision.
