Updated: Apr 21, 2020
I know it’s been so so long since I’ve posted a blog post! Wow, things are just so crazy right now. With the transition to working from home and a lockdown, it’s been a lot to wrap my head around. I’m sure I’m not the only one out there who feels this way. I think now being settled in and knowing it’s going to be a second before we all go back outside- I finally have time to whip out some content. But, it is also so important to focus on your mental health during this time. Take time to go outside (even if it’s sitting on your porch or taking a walk), read a book, or host a Tuesday night FaceTime with your friends- anything to make sure you’re taking extra good care of yourself.
With so much unknown, I went out and bought a decent amount of oatmeal- knowing it would last me a while and I could get creative with it.
So I’m happy to present a super easy breakfast recipe that you can use with oatmeal, granola, chia seeds, whatever makes you happy. The ingredients are sure to last you a while and it’s nourishing!
Don’t forget to nourish your body extra well these days- especially if your workout routine is changing. Keeping your body healthy is key!!
