Today’s nasty, cold & rainy weather made this afternoon the perfect day to give my very first Savory vs. Sweet Oatmeal a go. I’ve been wanting to whip up a savory oatmeal for quite a while, but every time I throw those oats in a pot on the stove, they always turn into something sweet — apples, bananas, goji berries, cinnamon, maple syrup, almond butter – all sweet, never savory. So, today was the day. And. Mmm!! I will be coming up with more savory combinations, for sure! I enjoyed every. last. bite. of this delicious bowl of oats – super satisfying.
This was THE perfect post boxing recovery meal — complex carbs from the oats, something green, 2 egg whites for your protein + topped it off with some toasted pine nuts for a little healthy fat…perfection in a bowl. I love me some brekkie anytime of day — throw this together for a super healthy breakfast, lunch or dindin. Noms.
Eat Up! xx

Nothing fancy here & definitely not a “recipe” you need to follow — add more/add less. Hope this both inspires and shows you how simple is to eat clean & healthy. Just get in that kitchen, have fun and throw together ingredients that you like & enjoy!
Snapped a few photos along the way to show you guys how simple this is to throw together.
