I’m very excited to say this is my first blog post! Now that I’ve set up my website, I can share so many recipes that I’ve found to be incredibly tasty.
I plan on making the best of healthy, but yummy foods so that all of you ladies and gentlemen are able to enjoy your best self in the healthiest way possible.
I hope you’ll be able to expand your taste buds and will be willing to try new things–from breakfast, lunch, and dinner, to desserts and drinks that will satisfy whatever you’re craving.
Let’s get on to the recipe ∼ My absolute favorite meal time is breakfast!

I can’t go a day without a good, hearty breakfast to help me fuel my morning.
There’s such an endless amount of food you can make during the morning, whether it be sweet or savory, and I never forget a hot cup of tea! (depending on the day, coffee and a glass of lemon water are great, too).

Below is a simple recipe for one of many favorite oatmeal recipes that I enjoy making:

PB & Banana Summer Oatmeal Bowl

Ingredients:
◊ 1 banana
◊ 1/2-1 cup of regular/whole wheat oats
◊ 1/2-1 tsp cinnamon
◊ 1/2-1 cup almond milk (or any milk of preference; coconut, cow, soy..) {amount of milk depends on your liking of more thick=less water or thin=more water}
◊ 1 tbsp chia seeds ♥ These little seeds are loaded with antioxidants, fiber, quality protein, and omega-3 fatty acids♥
(Cottage cheese and coconut sugar for garnish)-if vegan, substitute cottage cheese for your preference)

Directions:
1. On a stovetop, pour oats into rapidly boiling water and keep for approximately 45 secs. Add in cinnamon and peanut butter for the remaining minute. Stir occasionally. Cover with lid and remove from stove.
[1/2 cup of oats: 1 cup of water, 1 cup of oats: 1 3/4 cups of water, 3 cups of oats: 5 cups of water, and so on]
2. Pour oats into a bowl. Garnish with sliced bananas and add your chia seeds on top (flax seeds are great as well).
3. To create an aesthetically pleasing bowl of breakfast, add the toppings of your choice! I chose a spoonful of cottage cheese and a tsp of coconut sugar for a little dash of added sweetness.
4. Serve right away.
