Happy Oatmeal Day


Happy National Oatmeal Day, everyone!

The timing couldn’t be any better, as I’m trying to rekindle my love for these perfect little grains at the moment. I’m currently testing out the Forks Over Knives Plan, and the only requirement for the week is to replace the typical breakfast of bacon and eggs with the plant-based version.

Easy peasy? Well, not so quick.

The plan itself is very realistic and doable, but the problem here is that I don’t usually eat breakfast (I know, it’s awful) so trying to put something in my system first thing in the morning has been tougher than actually eating the non-animal options. But oatmeal is perfect. I make a bowl for my daughter for her breakfast in the morning anyway so making an extra cup is not a hassle, and it goes down easy.

My oatmeal of the day: A bowl of cooked rolled oats with sliced banana, raisins, and a teaspoon of Agave Nectar.
