So it's day 2 of my December blog challenge and I'm still here! The challenge of the day you ask? Here it is:
Day 2 - A photo of something you ate today.
This morning I woke up craving oatmeal. We got up early...well Jason did (5:45am) and as I drank my coffee I started googling things like healthy breakfast cookies or loaded oatmeal. I ended up at one of my favorite websites Kath Eats Real Food. Kath is a registered dietitian and one of my favorite healthy living bloggers. I knew she'd come through when it came to a good oatmeal recipe. This is the recipe I decided on: Baked Banana Oatmeal. I cut her recipe in half (hers serves 4) and added about a teaspoon of natural peanut butter to my wet ingredients. This turned out to be filling, good for me and a hit with Rylie! I ate around 7:45am and it's nearly 1pm...and I'm still pretty full. The middle is yummy and oaty (yep. I'm saying that's a word) and the outside is chewy an delicious. The bananas caramelize and and it's a little bit of heaven. Great way to start a day.
Come back tomorrow to find out what day 3 of the challenge has in store for me. I can honestly say that I haven't even read challenge #3, so it'll be a surprise to us all! Now I'm off to get some lunch and finally put some lights on my little Christmas tree. It's about time! Have a great day =)
