Loaded Oatmeal


Why? Because let’s face it, oatmeal can get pretty boring.

This morning I decided to have some fun with my food and load my usually boring oatmeal bowl up with a bunch of goodies. It was so much fun because it was totally spontaneous. It was as if I was painting a canvas and trying to decide what layer of paint I was going to put on next. What a rush!! Okay, okay, I know I get overly excited about food (guilty) but like I said, it was fun.

My canvas… I mean oatmeal bowl consisted of cranberries, frozen blueberries, toasted almonds, banana slices, and a dollop of vanilla greek yogurt to finish it off. I almost drizzled this baby with honey and added a spoonful of almond butter but I figured that would put me on the road to “you-over-did-it” so I made myself stop with just those ingredients. You’ll see! It’s hard to stop once you get going.

It makes oatmeal fun for you, fun for the family, a Win-Win! And no special grocery trips necessary, you can use whatever you have on hand. To get an idea of the goodies I used in my bowl I provided a recipe below.
