Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

I am here to tell you I am unapologetically posting a pumpkin recipe on the first official day of autumn.  Does this make me a sterotype?  Probably, but I don’t care!! Ha!! Man, it feels good to say that.  I have been called “quirky” for most of my life.  I’m not sure its always in

Here in the Northeast it has been a wonderful summer.  We have had some heat waves, some cooler streaks, and lots of sunshine. For the first time in as long as I can remember, I am spending most of my days in an office that does not have air conditioning.  I know just the idea

I have smoothies for breakfast a lot.  Like, for the most part I have a smoothie every morning.  Always.  But I realized I haven’t been showing the love to oatmeal.  And oatmeal deserves some love!

I suddenly remembered a few weeks ago that fresh cherries existed.  Upon remembering I proceeded to look up my produce purchase history to find when I get to stuff my face full of these perfect little fruits. I realized it was May, and it was a week later that I got my hands on some.

My love of oatmeal for breakfast started at a young age.  With one that had dinosaur eggs that melted into mini dinosaurs, and one with packets of fruit jam that I got to swirl in all by myself, what wasn’t to love? When I made this quinoa, I didn’t even realize I was pretty much

I drink a lot of smoothies.  Generally one a day.  Occasionally two.  I found a brand of frozen fruit that I like, and since I get fresh produce delivered weekly, I don’t go to the food store regularly these days.  So the times I do get to the store I end up going to the

Strawberry Vegan Green Smoothie

A while back the weirdest thing ever happened to me.  I started to love exercise.  I went from the wake-up-as-late-as-I-can-get-away-with (I was serious about getting every last minute of sleep) to getting up early to work out.  Which is seriously something I never ever thought I would do. (Ok, I am still serious about my sleep,
