I almost couldn’t believe it. A day devoted to my favorite food?
That’s almost as good as a day devoted to me! (Cough, November 14, cough)
Do I even have to tell you what was for breakfast?
Answer: I do, because looks can be deceiving.
Consumed: Oats in a jar, made with 1/3 C oatmeal cooked with pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, bit of frozen pumpkin and 2/3 C water. After cooking, spoon into nearly empty nut butter jar, drizzled with maple syrup and stirred all together. Topped with a few chocolate chips, for good measure.
I must say that I was extremely sad to see this jar of sunflower seed butter come to an end. Although I was a bit skeptical when I bought it, I might now say that it’s my favorite non-peanut butter.
If it had to go, at least it went in style!
But, why am I talking about sunflower seed butter? This day is about the oats!
There are more than a few reasons why I love oatmeal. To name a few:
- Oatmeal is the perfect canvas for a variety of flavors.
- It has a great chewy texture.
- The whole-grains are great fuel for the day.
Question: Are you celebrating National Oatmeal Day?
