I missed posting on Friday & Saturday. There goes a perfect NaBloPoMo, oh well! On Friday, I had a work event followed by a friend’s birthday party. Yesterday, I woke up feeling so tired. I sadly thought…wow, I’m SO OLD if one night out makes me useless the next day.
Around 4 pm, I realized that I was really achy and my throat was scratchy. OHHHH, I have a cold!! I’ve never been so excited to have a cold, ha. I’d rather be knocked down by a cold versus just middle age.
This time of year, I gravitate toward oatmeal for breakfast. It’s filling, so if you have a busy day and know that lunch will be far off, the oatmeal sticks to your ribs to keep you going. It’s so versatile. The add-in’s and combos are endless. It’s comforting, which was good for me while nursing my cold.
Pictured above are just some of my favorite oatmeal add-ins. (Not ALL of them together, of course.) I always add in some fruit for sweetness and some nuts for crunch.
And it’s no secret that I love ALL things pumpkin, so in the fall, I always stir in a dollop of pumpkin into my oatmeal.
So what oatmeal variation did I have this morning? Steel cut oatmeal, flaxseed, pumpkin, peanut butter…topped with banana slices & chopped almonds & some maple syrup drizzled on top.
What’s your favorite oatmeal combo?
