Wake up like restaurateur and fitness personality Michael Chernow with his favorite breakfast or post-workout meal.
Chernow, who joined ABC News' Ginger Zee on the "GMA" Instagram account for a live conversation about fitness, wellness and nutrition, shared his go-to recipe for his protein oats dish.
This is Chernow's favorite way to start the day after training. It's like dessert to start the day, he says, but actually really healthy.

1/2 cup gluten-free quick oats
1.5 cups water
1.5 scoops plant-based protein powder (Ladder is my favorite)
1 oz blueberries
1 tablespoon cacao nibs
1 tablespoon shaved almonds
Cinnamon to taste
Bring oats and water to boil in a small pot.
Once water is boiling, bring to a simmer for 2 minutes, make sure to stir while cooking.
After 2 minutes, take off the burner and cover for a minute or so.
Add the scoop of protein to the pot and mix well until completely incorporated. Add a dash of water to help along if you like.
Pour the protein oats mixture into a bowl.
