Pumpkin Oatmeal with Blueberries

Um, hello.

I guess you all know what's not been top priority on my to-do list basically all year for awhile! ........this blog. Funny thing is, there are multiple 1/2 written blog postings in the draft folder that just haven't quite made it out into the blogosphere.

Would you like to see them?

Yeah, I wasn't so sure either. But chances are they'll be posted here soon, so if you take the time to read them please comment and let me know what you think!

In the meantime, take a look at what I made for breakfast earlier this week. And for supper last night. And for lunch today. 

 Go ahead and accuse me of being a creature of habit, but when food is this good, it really is a wonderful habit to form!


Not only does it taste great, but this is a hearty meal that you can even feel great about eating!! It's packed full of 16g of healthy fibers and 17g of protein. And those blueberries? Mmm! My favorite way to consume plenty of wonderful antioxidants. This recipe will be sure to fill you up and give you loads of energy for the day!
