Apple-Banana Oatmeal with Pecans

2/3 cup water

1/3 cup oatmeal

1 banana

1 apple (chopped)

1/3 cup milk

1 tsp brown sugar

dash of cinnamon

dash of salt

dash of nutmeg

4 pecan halves (optional)

Put your oatmeal and water together in a microwave safe bowl. I stick mine in for 1:45, but it will depend on your microwave. As soon as it's done, I put the chopped apples in, while it's still piping hot. Then quickly place a plate on top of the bowl. I usually do this while I'm getting out the other ingredients. Let it sit there for a couple minutes (it's gives the apples a little bit of a cooked taste). Then add all the other ingredients. Most days I also pair it with some easy scrambled eggs. I usually cook the eggs while the oatmeal is resting with the apples.

It's a solid breakfast and keeps me going for several hours.

To all of you with a heavy heart:

Keep going, keep fueling your body with healthy wonderful things. Life is beautiful!
