Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

This recipe is quick, simple, delicious, and perfect for those mornings when you are in a rush but still want to eat something healthy that will fuel you through your morning. During the fall and winter seasons, I love to make oatmeal because it is warm and comforting and also because it is high in fiber and low in fat. Oatmeal stays in your stomach to make you feel fuller longer and it's full of anti-oxidants. This recipe also works great for apples that are starting to get soft.

For this recipe you will need:

  • 1/3 apple
  • 1/2 cup quick oats (I used 365 organic quick oats) 
  • about a 1/4 cup almond milk, or whatever milk you prefer
  • about 1/2 cup water (this doesn't have to be exact and can vary depending on how hard or soft you like your oats to be)
  • cinnamon 

  • Add oats to bowl
  • Dice apple and add on top of oats
  • Pour almond milk over apples and oats
  • Add water until all parts of oats have been contacted
  • Microwave for 1-11/2 depending on how cooked you like your oatmeal
  • Sprinkle cinnamon over your oatmeal
And like always, you can modify this recipe by adding more oats and using the entire apple; this is just the serving size I typically make.

Free 21 Day Meditation

Oprah and Deepak are offering 21 days of guided meditations available here. This started on November 11, but each meditation is available for 5 days after being posted so there is still time to start today; you could even do two meditations a day to catch up! This is a great way to get into meditating. Even if you already meditate, this is a good thing to do to guide you and remind you to find some peace of mind on a daily basis. This meditation series is about desire, destiny, and finding who you are. Each mediation also comes with inspirational messages and quotes. If you can find 20 minutes tonight, sit down in a quiet place, close your eyes, and start this 21 day journey with me!

So Hum. . . I am.

Star Fruit!

Star fruits, or carambolas, are one of my favorite fruits. They are great to eat on their own but they are an even better to add to a festive fruit salad that you might make for a party or just for the family, especially with the upcoming holiday season. They are also rich in iron, fiber, and vitamins A and C. If you've never had one, go try one today!
