Not So Basic Oats
Sometimes it’s comforting to go back to basics.
Is it strange that I consider oatmeal, wheat germ, flaxseed, cinnamon, nutmeg, coconut, chia seeds, cottage cheese, wheat berries, pecans, and almond butter basic?!
I’m always adding some kind of fruit or veggie, like bananas or pumpkin, and sometimes I forget that I really like it the way I started eating it. Just with cottage cheese and nut butter.
I usually prefer peanut butter on my oatmeal, or at least a combo of PB and almond butter, but this morning I opted for just almond butter. It just seemed right.
So good. I could actually taste all those ingredients in there without the extra flavors hiding them- cinnamon, coconut….mmmm.
Any fun plans for the weekend?! I’m volunteering at the Women’s ACC Tournament tonight!
