What I’m Eating Today

Just thought I’d stop by to show this delicious oatmeal that I made for myself this morning. It tastes like apple pie! It fills me right up, and that’s been hard to do lately. I’ve been so hungry these days but this warm bowl of sweet goodness is the perfect breakfast on a winter day.


Apple Pie Breakfast Oats

1/2 cup rolled oats

3/4 cup water

1/3 cup milk

1/4 cup apple butter

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 apple, peeled and chopped

1  tablespoon chia seeds

1 tablespoon brown sugar

Chopped pecans

pinch of nutmeg

splash of eggnog (optional)

1. Start by peeling and chopping your apple.

2. In a saucepan bring the water to a boil

3. Add in the oats, milk, apple butter, cinnamon, apple pieces, and chia seeds. Reduce heat and simmer for 8 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes.

4. To prepare, pour oatmeal into a bowl and sprinkle with brown sugar and nutmeg. Add nuts. Add a splash of eggnog for that extra-festive flavor. It just so happens to be Christmastime so eggnog should be a-plenty. But any other time of year, nutmeg will suffice. Enjoy!

We are all familiar with mayo. We know it’s unhealthy and grocery store brands are packed with some pretty gross ingredients including corn syrup and hydrogenated oils. In fact, homemade mayo only contains a few ingredients so why add all those nasty things? Oh wait, shelf life. We need products to last for 8 years... Continue reading
