What do I eat for Breakfast?

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. A day where you can "start new" (diet wise) and eat something so yummy and filling. I love it!
My usual (when I have the time) is Pumpkin Pie Steel Cut Oats. Its a variation from the oatmeal in Deceptively Delicious. (Which is a great book for picky eaters by the way)
When I am in a hurry I take regular instant oats in the microwave and add some milk and a small amount of protien powder or peanut butter and fruit.
Favorite cold cereals are Fiber One Original, and Kashi (usually any flavor is good, but I try to stick with the regular Go Lean kind)

Pumpkin Pie Oats
(Click HERE to see why you choose Steel Cut over Regular Oats)

1 Cup of Milk
1 3/4 Cups of water
1 C Steel Cut Oats (I found these at Costco!)
1/2 C Canned Pumpkin (or sweet potato baby food would work too!)
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
Dash of Nutmeg ( I tend to be generous)
1 Tbl Natural Peanut Butter (optional)
Honey (optional)
Fruit (we like bananas with this combination)

Put milk and water in pot, add oats. Bring to boil, then turn down to a medium heat. (they will cook about 10 minutes depending on your taste and how chewy you want them) Add the pumpkin, vanilla, and spices and stir. When all done you can stir in some all natural Peanut Butter. Top with Honey (or for a twist pure maple syrup), bananas, and nuts. Add some milk to cool it down and ENJOY!!!
Yum - I could eat this all day long!

  1. Sunflower Market sells Steel Cut Oats too. They are pretty good. I usually get them there so they don't go bad.

  2. Tried this today. So yummy! The steel cut oats seem sweeter than the old fashioned. We topped with some chopped pecans. Good stuff!

  3. I have been using Agave for a great natural sweetner to substitute honey and they sell it cheap at costco. You would love it. I cook with it and use it also for pb sandwiches.
