Boysenberry Nut Oatmeal

You didn’t all think I was going to go a day without Oatmeal, did you?

Well, I didn’t go without my Oats, but I did go without the Body Works Class tonight

Why? Because I am trying to get my blog self-hosted, and it is taking it’s sweet time. There are soo many little challenges throughout this process, and it requires a lot of waiting and patience. I have actually gotten much further than I thought I would though, so that’s great!

On another note, dinner! I had Oatmeal! Of course! I swear, my body feels so much better when I eat Oats everyday.

Tonight, I put Boysenberry Jam in my Oatmeal. Oh. my. goodness! It was like dessert!

I always use this basic creamy Oats recipe:

  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup Oats
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1/2-1 banana
  • 3 shakes of cinnamon

The method?

  • Boil 1/3 cup water
  • Add 1/3 cup Oats once boiling
  • Reduce to med heat
  • Add in chunks of banana (thick slices)
  • Add in almond milk
  • Stir/heat until it’s the consistency that you like
  • Pour into bowl
  • Add your favorite toppings

My toppings tonight included:

  • A little bit more Chia Seeds (this is seriously a miracle digestion seed)
  • 1 tbsp. gluten free granola
  • 1 tbsp. white chocolate chips (give or take)
  • 1 tbsp. almond butter
  • 1 tbsp. boysenberry jelly

So deliciously good! And now I have my Oatmeal craving covered for the day šŸ˜‰

I have noticed lately, that even though I love Oats for breakfast, I also love having them later in the day

When I eat Oats for dinner, they are perfectly filling, and they are so warm and comforting, that they truly feel like a treat. There is just something about Oatmeal that I am totally obsessed with!

Tonight as I was eating it, I was thinking…. There are probably so many other foods that we can add toppings to, try tons of different flavors, etc… but we just don’t… Like, when I make rice… why don’t I try all of these cool flavors and toppings? What about grits? I think it’s time for some more experimenting!

For some reason, rice and pesto just sounds sooo good… Hmmmm….. ideas are popping up everywhere… rice, pesto, goat cheese, spinach….? Wouldn’t that be good?!

Haha, I am just in a food mood (wait, when am I not???)

I am off to Trader Joes, because my Almond Milk is almost out, and there’s no way my life will go on tomorrow unless I go get more right now šŸ˜‰
