Spring Into Action......

Happy Spring all! I am so excited that Spring is finally here and it all begins today with this fabulous weater we are having in California. It is seriously the perfect weather to me ~ 70 degrees, sunny, not too hot and not too cold. It's perfect for lounging in a hammock.....awww, I wish!

For breakfast today, I decided it was an oats kind of day. I made Apple Cinnamon Oats.

Apple Cinnamon Raisin Oats

In the mix:

1/2 cup Quaker Old Fashioned Oatmeal
1 cup water
Dash of Cinnamon
1 Tbsp Ground Flax Seed
2 Tbsp Organic Raisins
1/2 Fuji Apple, Chopped
1 Tbsp Organic Natural Apple Butter (stirred in after cooking)
1 Tbsp Freshly Ground Organic Almond Butter on my spoon to be eaten with every bite

All ready in under 5 minutes - cooked in the microwave. So simple and so satisfying. I served it up with some Starbuck's Decaf and a full SIGG bottle of water.

Enjoy the first day of spring ~ I know I will. I have a big todo list today, but, I plan on getting alot checked off before my weekend starts. It is the perfect way to lead into the weekend as it leaves me more time to have fun.


  1. yummy. Also try subbing your 1 cup water with 1 cup apple juice.

  2. Amy ~ That is a great idea! I will definitely have to try that. Thanks for sharing.
