The best place to start is a good breakfast.

I prefer my oats savory. This was inspired by a close friend who shares my aversion to sweets first thing in the morning.

This is how I do it... I adore the Quick Cook Steel Cut Oats at Trader Joes they are done in just 8 minutes. But if you don't have a TJ's close by you can always make a big batch and heat it up throughout the week. Once the oats are cooked I add chopped cherry tomatoes, fresh parsley, chia seeds, roasted almond slivers, olive oil and Bragg's. Mix & enjoy.

  1. And just like that...she's back.

    I think of you and your savory ways every single time I sprinkle cinnamon onto my oats. Someday I'll try your way. :)

    1. hadn't thought of using roasted veggies... I think roasted zucchini could be yummy too... you must try the tomatoes sometime... all the yummy juice and seeds warms up and adds a lot to the oats.

  4. I'm opposite. I like to start my day with something sweet, not good I'm sure. Beautiful picture, thoughfully composed but effortless at the same time :)
