Quick & Healthy Breakfast

Oatmeal. Sometimes I have a scowl on my face when I think about it. It’s very hard for me to get excited about oatmeal. Especially, when I woke up this morning craving bacon. Lots and lots of bacon. Unfortunately, I’m not the skinny chick I was last Fall. Therefore, oatmeal for breakfast it is. I suppose one good thing about oatmeal is that you can dress it with all kinds of things that are a lot more exciting than the oatmeal itself. It also keeps you full longer than a regular breakfast of let’s say….a pound of bacon. Or cereal, or eggs, or yogurt or toast. I think you know what I’m getting at. According to Care2 Make A Difference, a healthy living blog, there are 10 Benefits to eating oatmeal. Who am I to argue?

Peach & Walnut Oatmeal

Gluten Free Oatmeal, cooked

1/2 Very Ripe Peach, peeled & sliced

About 1/8 Cup Walnuts

Pumpkin Pie Spice

Almond Milk

This is pretty self-explanatory but I’ll give a quick run down. Cook the oatmeal, top with the peeled peaches, break up the walnuts over the top of the peaches, pour the almond milk, and sprinkle with the pumpkin pie spice.

  1. I just picked up some pumpkin spice a few days ago and will definitely try this.. I’m on the oatmeal plan as well. I didn’t realize they had gluten-free oatmeal?


    • It was really good! Yes, they do have gluten-free oatmeal. I use Bob’s Red Mill. You can also find it in a lot of other brands as well. Evidently many oat fields are planted next to wheat fields. They end up cross pollinating and then the “regular” oatmeal is no longer gluten-free.
