Healthy and Delicious Recipes to Jazz Up Your Morning Oatmeal

19 Jan

Oatmeal is one of my go to breakfasts. It’s a healthy choice with fiber and protein that keep me full all morning plus it’s pretty fast and easy to make. That being said…plain oats can get pretty boring which is why I love some of these recipes I found on Pinterest. These variations include fruit, peanut butter and jelly, spices and plenty of ways jazz up your oatmeal so your breakfast will make you feel good and look good but it will also taste amazing.

By the way, have I mentioned my undying love for Pinterest yet? It’s one of the coolest new sites where you can post, share and follow pictures of things that inspire you from fashion to photography, food , fitness, pets, home inspiration and DIY projects. It’s kind of  like a vision board and it’s a great way to explore and share things that inspire you..plus I find it’s also a great motivation tool. Try it…love it…share the obession:) You can check out my Pinterest boards here….http://pinterest.com/fitfabcities/
