Good Morning! Bet you are wishing you were waking up to this amazing oatmeal aren’t you? I really don’t blame you. It’s pretty epic. I will admit it is my first truly homemade oatmeal. Before this I was a “grab a packet and go” kind of girl. Not anymore. No sirree. That is not happening. This was such a cinch to make and it was ready when I stumbled to the breakfast table. Perfect for this mother of a newborn that is surviving on less sleep than a human really should. Then I went and combined peanut butter and banana. Delicious! You know what I loved the most? It was filling. My stomach wasn’t growling in a few hours which is usually the case!
As I’ve shared before, I’m making it a goal in 2015 to eat healthier and smarter. I don’t really believe in strict diets because they crash and burn. I can never keep them up and then I end up gaining that weight right back. Instead I’m just trying to make better decisions. Every little bit in life counts! This oatmeal includes Steel Cut Oats, flaxseed and Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend to give it a face lift and make it a smarter breakfast. You’ll soon be throwing all those packets of oatmeal out too! It felt great to know that I was starting my day out on the right foot and making a smarter decision for breakfast and that it would hold me all the way until lunchtime. I hate when my stomach starts growling at 10 am!
Part of making smarter choices in 2015 for my daily diet includes incorporating Truvia® Brown Baking Blend in my routine. You can simply sub out the brown sugar in the recipe for Truvia® by cutting that amount in half so if a recipe calls for 1 c. brown sugar you simply use 1/2 c. Truvia® Brown Sugar Baking Blend. Plus you won’t even know it has been subbed. You’ll still achieve perfect moist muffins, cakes etc. with the brown sugar-like texture and it bakes and browns like recipes with brown sugar!
Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend is a blend of Truvia® sweetner and brown sugar with 75% fewer calories per serving than brown sugar. Sounds pretty awesome right? Did you know that 1 c. of brown sugar has 830 calories and Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend only has 210 calories? I bet that got your attention!
Oatmeal is the perfect breakfast to warm to before you go out sledding and making snowmen this winter too! My friends over at Truvia® have an awesome contest going on just for you! Fans can post a snowman-inspired photo via a tab on the Truvia® Facebook page or by using #SweetWarmUp on Twitter or Instagram for the chance to win a Snowman Building prize pack, a Sledding prize pack or a Cozy Up prize pack!
Pretty awesome huh? I know I would love a prize package like that!
