Apple-Banana Oatmeal with Pecans
2/3 cup water
1/3 cup oatmeal
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!
