One reason I love fall is because of the harvest. No, I’m not harvesting anything here in midtown Manhattan, but I do see the foods of harvest season everywhere I go.
To celebrate, I’ve been starting my day off with Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal. Since oatmeal does not photograph well and you know what it looks like, I didn’t take any pictures. 😉
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
- 1 TBS nut butter
- Pinch of salt
- Splash of vanilla extract
- Pumpkin pie spice (to taste)
Directions: Bring water to a boil in a small pot on top of the stove. Add oats followed by remaining ingredients. Mix together and cook for 10 minutes. Let cool for two minutes. Pour into bowl and enjoy!
If you like your oats a little creamier, just reduce the amount of water. For a thicker consistency use any type of milk in place of water.
I’ll see you guys tomorrow for a special edition of Friday Fitness Flash Back.
