My Very Favorite Breakfast Recipe

As summer is approaching, I thought it would be a great idea to hop on the let's-eat-healthier-and-be-more-active train. I just really want to feel better and have more energy 1. because my body is a temple and 2. because when you feel better you DO better. And doing better makes the world a better place.

The good news is...I love a fresh fruit bowl or veggies and hummus just about as much as I love cupcakes. And that makes eating healthy somewhat of a hobby! Sometimes (aka NOW as finals are approaching)  I tend to forget that eating better really makes me feel like a better person. In times of stress, I'm quick to grab a giant bowl of sugary treats (hello Crispy M&Ms.... yes we all know you are back) or something covered in sprinkles. lots and lots of sprinkles.

But luckily today, I'm bringing you a breakfast recipe that will make you FEEL good and DO good. There is no added sugar, lots of healthy fats, and it tastes GREAT.

Banana Blueberry Oatmeal: 

1/3 cup of oats
2/3 cup of almond milk
1/2 banana
1 tsp. coconut oil
generous sprinkling of ground cinnamon

Top with:
1/2 sliced banana
more ground cinnamon

1. Add oats, almond milk, 1/2 sliced banana, and coconut oil to a small pot. Bring to a boil at medium heat until desired consistency. Stir in ground cinnamon.

2. Once cooked, pour into your favorite bowl and top with 1/2 sliced banana, blueberries, walnuts, and more cinnamon.

Happy healthy humpday, friends!


  1. Giirrrrlllll, this recipe is killing it. Now, I want oatmeal. And blueberries. And bananas. And M&Ms. And Cupcakes. Oh, you bring out the foodie in me!
