Coconut Almond Oatmeal

Today is the kind of day where you want to stay in bed all day and watch tv. It's pouring rain. To lift the gloomy mood, I think I am going to just work for a few hours and then go to Vinyasa Yoga at noon. I haven't been able to make it to class these last few weeks, and I miss it.

On a brighter note, my breakfast this morning was delicious.
I started with my standard base of oats, cinnamon, almond milk, and banana. Once cooked, I sprinkled wheat germ, sliced almonds, and coconut on top.

I love coconut.

These oats weren't creamy because the wheat germ dries them out. I've found that only happens with almond milk, so maybe I just need to add extra liquid?

I hope the sun is shining where you are!

I've only recently started loving coconut - I'm glad I gave it another chance, since it has such a wonderful, luscious flavor! Great addition to your oats!

Hmm - I always use almond-milk in my oats... but I add 1/2 cup water when cooking the oats, and THEN add about 1/2 cup of almond-milk (so try adding more liquid, for sure).

I DO hope that the sun comes out where you are, so that you can fully enjoy your Thursday!

Well Monica - thanks for sending me the bad weather :( We're expecting storms all night and all day/night tomorrow too!

On a brighter note, I love coconut too!!!
