Last night I was thinking about what I wanted for breakfast...I honestly couldn't come up with anything! So, after the Bears game, I laid my head down on my brand new comfy pillow and went right to sleep.
This morning, all I could think of was oatmeal! The cool weather has definitely got me craving hot tea, hot coffee, and warm breakfasts to soothe the soul.
-1/2 cup rolled oats
-1/2 cup water
-1/2 cup soy milk (or water/cows milk/almond milk/coconut milk/etc.)
-1/4 t each cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg
-1 T ground flax seeds
Dump everything into a small pot and gently simmer, stirring occasionally, until your desired thickness is reached. Serve with a bit of studying for nutrition and you have a balanced morning!
Right now, I am studying vitamins for one of my classes and Vitamin A was the topic during that picture. Besides some oils, vitamin A can be found in all orange/red vegetables, especially carrots, pumpkin, and sweet potato. Is it ironic that I had a post about the color orange on the second day of October? I think not, my friends.
Well, off to do more studying and then to work. Hopefully I'll get some pictures to post about later!
