Powering Up with Oatmeal!
:: August 28, 2013

I love nothing better than a good run first thing in the morning, before everyone is up and out the door and the streets are crazy with people getting to work.  I like the peace on the streets - probably because that's the only quiet I'll hear all day:)  And, despite preaching about needing to get food in your belly before a morning workout, I'm not the best at it.  I'll always grab a banana, but since we were all out today, I ran on empty and was STARVING when I got back.  Plus, after any workout, it's important to get whole grain carbs and a touch of protein back into your body to prepare for the next workout... that brought me to a delicious oatmeal this morning!  

If you haven't run away from flavored instant oatmeal packets yet, try this recipe out and see if it just can't sway you too.  Oatmeal is such a cinch to make and is way tastier with real food than with all the artificial flavors your favorite brand tries to convince you is actually strawberry (it's just not.).   

Apple Pie Oatmeal

1 apple, cored and chopped 

1 cup water

1/2 cup quick cooking oats

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan.  Add the oats, apple, cinnamon and nutmeg.   Simmer for 2-3 minutes while stirring.  Add a splash of milk and a dash of brown sugar and enjoy!  

Little T and I enjoyed the bowl together this morning so I used a splash of whole milk which took it up a whole notch in my book, I love the extra creaminess:)
