Breakfast you say?

Morning Oatmeal to fill you up and start your day!

I eat this probably 3-5 times a week, I'm a creature of habit. I change it up now and then and you can tailor to your liking. It isn't complicated and the only real "unique" thing is the homemade berry jam.

Old fashioned Oatmeal
1/2 Banana
1 Tbsp all natural Peanut or other nut butter (unsweetened, no added oils)
1-2 Tbsp Raspberry or other berry Jam ( see recipe below)

 This one you don't even need me to tell you...make the oatmeal, add the toppings...and Voila!

But here is the recipe for the Jam..courtesy of


  • 3 cups frozen berries of choice
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • maple syrup or honey
  • lemon juice (optional) for changing up the flavor
  • Thaw berries  in a bowel on counter for a couple hours until easily mashed.
  • Add in 1-2 Tbsp of maple syrup to desired sweetness, and/or lemon juice or honey
  • Mash all together, then throw in chia seeds and stir
  • Put bowl in fridge with lid for at least 2 hours to let the chia seeds do their thing.
  • Enjoy! Stays good in fridge for  up to 2 weeks and can be frozen :)
