Start your day with a bowl of oatmeal that tastes like a Strawberry Shortcake! Nutty oats, strawberries and a hint of vanilla all come together quickly for a dessert inspired breakfast!
I am back! I am back! I am backkkkkkkkk! After a few, wonderful past few weeks filled with wedding bliss, Mexico sun, salty margaritas, and quality time with my new husband, all I can say is, it was a dream filled month!
I am more than grateful for all the family and friends that helped Dustin and I celebrate. All I can say is, they all know how to party! I am working on a fun post to share with you all. Bet you can hardly wait!
I appreciate you all for checking in and saying hi while I was away – I did have some pretty amazing bloggers keeping you company, after all! From Phi’s 5 Ingredient Chocolate Coconut Slice and Bake Cookies, to Alaina’s Pancetta and Sweet Pea Zucchini Noodles, to Taylor’s Skinny Almond Joy Cheesecake and to Rachel’s Triple Chocolate Cocoa Puffs Krispy Treats! All these mouth-watering recipes will be happening in my kitchen soon…like tomorrow.
Despite how much I enjoyed lounging on the beach with an endless frozen margarita in my hand, my body might go in to sugar overload if that diet continued. Yes, even though the wedding diet is over, I love the way nutrient dense foods make me feel and a tad bit too much of sugar will make me go into sugar overdrive!
So how does a girl get back on track? With a healthy start to her morning! Oats have been on my breakfast rotation for what feels like eternity. No complaints there.
Oats are a bowl of pure comfort; warm, sweet and creamy. With summer’s abundance of strawberries, I had to throw them into my oats. The addition of the vanilla protein powder not only adds creaminess but also adds a hint of vanilla. I also decided to throw in chia seeds; if you have never had them. They are little beads of greatness. They plump up when put in liquid and sort of gel up to help build some volume. I love them for their endless health benefits.
Sweetness from the strawberries meets the warm vanilla, oats and instantly reminding me of strawberry shortcake. Now, who can say no to cake for breakfast?
