I'm looking for recommendations for good protein powder. I've been mixing dry powdered milk into my oatmeal for the past couple of days to get a little more protein in my breakfast, but I'm mildly lactose intolerant and my poor tummy is not doing well with the powdered milk. I didn't think it would be a problem since I can usually tolerate a half cup of milk without any issues, but that is not the case. I think that protein powder might be a better (and unfortunately more expensive) option for me. What kind of protein powder do you use?

what about putting egg whites in your oatmeal?

That is a thought. How do you do it, do you mix it in before you cook the oats, or after? I typically cook my oats in the microwave, if that makes a difference. When I wasn't on such a tight schedule in the morning I would cook them on the stove top with soy milk, but it always boils over in the microwave. The powdered milk was nice in that respect, I could stir it in with my peanut butter and cocoa powder once the oats were cooked.

I am not sure, I have never done it I would think after they were cooked to stir it in?
You can get a soy protein shake, that is what DH eats, but most I have seen, are very high in sugar.

Baked Blueberry and Peach Oatmeal
3 c old-fashioned oats
1/2 c packed brown sugar
(I added a little cinnamon too)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 egg whites
1 egg
1 1/4 c skim milk
1/4 c canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 15 oz can sliced peaches in juice, drained and chopped
1 c fresh or frozen blueberries
1/3 c chopped walnuts

In a large bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Whisk the egg whites, egg, milk, oil and vanilla; add to dry ingredients and stir until blended. Let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in peaches and blueberries.
Transfer to an 11x7 baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with walnuts. Bake, uncovered, at 350* for 35-50 minutes or until top is lightly browned. Serve with additional milk if desired.

This stuff ROCKS!

Hmm. How well does that stuff reheat, BigGahoona? I need quick and fast. It does sound good though, I"ll have to try it. I had a roommate in college that made a caramel type oatmeal that had eggs in it, but she cooked it on the stovetop.

I made it for the first time this a.m. - Last night I had all the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients mixed and ready to throw together with the fruit this morning so it could bake while I ran. I have heard it's great reheated and I plan to do just that for breakfast tomorrow before my long run so I'll be sure let you know!
