Cincinnati has been throwing out it’s wonky weather again. One day it will be a beautiful sunny day with highs in the 50’s, and then the next day we wake up to below freezing temperatures and snowflakes flying around.
I definitely check the weather first thing in the morning. Will I be wearing layers of clothes with boots and scarves, or will it be a no coat kind of day?
Of course this wonky weather also affects how many times I must mop and vacuum. Yes, with three dogs running around the house, that leaves a lot of muddy paw prints. I have a really hard time with dirty floors, so after breakfast the floors get mopped. After midday they are mopped and of course before we all go to bed at the end of our muddy day, you guessed it mopping occurs. I just don’t know how to make it any easier. Do you have any tips on how to keep your floors clean during these muddy months?
One thing I do know is how important starting off your day with a nutritious breakfast is. I have several friends who skip their morning breakfast, or will just have a bar of some sort because it is easy.
We should all have a breakfast that is balanced and hearty enough to give our bodies the energy that they need. Bars are fine on days when we are rushed, but they should not be a regular go to for our breakfast meal. Oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfast meals.
- It is easy!
- It is nutritious
- It is the perfect foundation to a hearty breakfast
I am a big fan of almond milk, and adding So Delicious Organic Almondmilk to your oatmeal gives you the added benefits of keeping your oatmeal thick and rich, and lactose free. Plus So Delicious Organic Almondmilk is vegan with no preservatives (and under 50 calories each dairy-free serving!).
Then top your oatmeal with some chai spice which, I think is a great morning spice. Probably from all those chai latte’s I have consumed over my life. A little pure maple to sweeten and berries for fiber and antioxidants.
You can make your oats and milk in the microwave, but I wanted to show you how easy it is to do on the stovetop. Just minutes a few stirs and you are left with your perfectly cooked oats. I am a fan of berries on my oats, but you can use raisins, bananas, or any fruit that you fancy.
You can also enjoy a glass of So Delicious Organic Almondmilk in the morning in place of your regular milk and with 3 different varieties in Organic Vanilla, Unsweetened, and Original, you’ve got plenty of options!
