CJ's Breakfast

CJ's Breakfast

The following recipe is from book on nutrition which I have been reading currently by Chris Johnson, founder of the "On Target Living" program. From the back cover, "Thousands of people of all ages and life stages have attend Chris Johnson's On Target Living seminars. As a result, a better understanding of simple nutrition has not only improved their health, but changed their lives." Mr. Johnson holds a Masters Degree in exercise physiology and has been the director of health, wellness and fitness at Sparrow Hospital's Michigan Athletic Club for 15 plus years, with over 16,000 hours of one-on-one training (as of 2008). So, what does Chris Johnson often have for breakfast? CJ's Breakfast, or what he calls "oatmeal on the run", which simply soaks overnight in the refrigerator and requires no cooking. Mr. Johnson says this easy breakfast is "quick and easy, well-balanced, high in quality, and gives me great energy to start my day."
1/2 cup organic rolled oats (8g protein)
Slivered almonds (no amount listed; 5g protein)
1 cup soy milk (5g protein; or other non-dairy beverage, such as almond milk)
Organic dried cherries (no amount listed; lg protein)
Lemon-flavored cod oil
Flaxseed oil
Dash ground cinnamon
In a bowl, mix all ingredients together.
Cover, then refrigerate overnight (no cooking required).

Altthough Mr. Johnson is not a vegetarian, he does advocate the inclusion of more plant-based proteins and used the above recipe to illustrate how getting sufficient protein without animal products is easier than many think. The above breakfast dish contributes 19 grams of high-quality protein. I did note the inclusion of cod-liver oil, which I would forgo.
