• Oatmeal Power Bowl

    Who said that oatmeal had to be served sweet all the time?? Don’t get me wrong, I love my oatmeal with brown sugar, a side of fruit, honey or nut butter. But this version is so much better for a savory breakfast, healthy lunch or dinner option. I used Coach’s Oats for this recipe and followed the directions on the package to make the oatmeal. I substituted the water with organic Chicken Broth (I had some left over from another meal and I was happy to not waste it) and seasoned it with salt, pepper and Za’atar.

  • Spirulina+Coconut Oatmeal Bites

    Have you heard of Spirulina powder? I started using it last week actually, in a smoothie bowl. I loved it. This morning I decided to make oatmeal bites using Spirulina powder.

    Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

    These Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins are perfect to make ahead for a few days of breakfast or snacks. Meal prep has helped me tremendously by eliminating the “What are we eating?” stressors. I had some Bob’s Red Mill Organic Gluten Free Rolled Oats that were about to expire. I couldn’t let them die. So, I whipped up these delicious Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins and three out of four people in my household loved them. This morning, I enjoyed them while sipping on my extra strong coffee. Tomorrow, I will eat them with Greek yogurt. I can also see myself eating them with a glass of cold milk while they are warm. Yumm! Let…
