Day 2: Blog Challenge!

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  =)


  1. omg! that looks delish! i wish i had time to make that for breakfast tomorrow...maybe on Saturday.

  2. April, that oatmeal looks divine! Mmm. We haven't finished our tree yet but I'm hoping to do so by the weekend! It's killing me, poor thing is just sitting their with lights and no decorations, haha.

  3. Thanks ya'll! It was quite yummy. Definitely a different take on your regular run of the mill oatmeal. And Jess, at least you have the lights on your tree! I couldn't find the lights, so mine is still nekkid!
