Blueberry Oats & MY FIRST GIVEAWAY!
Good morning to you!
I woke up early because when I have a long to do list, my mind does not like to sleep for long. And seeing as how my to do list of odds n’ ends before I move up to Raleigh is currently 4 pages longs…I better get to steppin’. ;)
Breakfast was a hodge-podge of what I had in the pantry. But one of the star ingredients comes from a past Foodie Pen Pal!
Macadamia Blossom Honey—doesn’t it just sound delish?
Blueberry, Honey & Almond Quick Oatmeal
- 1/4 cup quick oats
- 1/2 cup water or almond milk
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1 Tbsp. slivered almonds
- 1-2 tsp. Honey
This recipe is all about the layering!
- Add oats and water into a microwave safe bowl. Stir and microwave for 1 minute. ***Make sure you watch your oats, so they don’t boil over!
- Remove from microwave and stir in cinnamon.
- Add blueberries and gently fold in. Mine were frozen, so I let this sit for a minute or two in order to defrost in the oats.
- Sprinkle with almond and drizzle with honey.
While I was at the beach, SlimKicker, a calorie counter and level up weight loss game, contacted me about a giveaway for YOU AWESOME READERS!
SlimKicker is a calorie tracker and game that turns your diet/fitness goals into a level-up game with points and rewards. You rack up points by tracking healthy calories, and completing challenges such as quitting soda for a week. You upload a picture of a reward such as a cheat food, or iPod, and SlimKicker will remind you to reward yourself with that reward as you reach a certain number of points. They also have a bunch of recipes for diets as well!
So…on to the part where you get cool stuff…
SlimKicker is offering one lucky reader an Ozeri Epicurean Digital Kitchen Scale! This would be amazing to have in the kitchen, to keep track the exact amounts of food you’re using!
