But if you haven’t here is the deal.…… Continue reading Oats in a Jar

A Note on Oats…

This morning i was talking oatmeal with my friend Kristin. She is all about adding oatmeal into her breakfast menu now that I have told her how good it is for you. (It’s a super food!)

Sunday Morning Oats

This morning I really wanted to get oats onto the menu for breakfast. . . Ever since I have been sick I have sort of lost the taste for oats, oat bran and oatmeal. I have no idea why! But I know that when you are working out, oatmeal is really good for you. I…… Continue reading Sunday Morning Oats
