Raspberry Pecan Oatmeal

Favorite thing #4: Breakfast

I never used to be a breakfast person. It was torture when my mom would make me eat something before leaving for school in the morning. Once I learned the importance of breakfast and started eating it regularly, I started to wake up hungry.

Eating within the first hour of waking up helps jump start your day. It revs up your metabolism, increases productivity, and keeps you more satisfied during the day.

My breakfast of choice is oatmeal. It’s the perfect canvas to create a delicious breakfast packed with nutrition. I go back and forth between steel cut oats and old-fashioned rolled oats. Depends on my mood. My go to combo is unsweetened vanilla almond milk, flaxseed meal, cinnamon, and a drizzle of agave nectar.

Every now and then, usually on the weekends, I change it up. My  latest creation was a perfect combo.

I used my roasted pecan butter.

This combo is guaranteed to get your day off to a great start. The fiber, healthy fats, and protein found in this meal keep you satisfied through the morning.
