Any one else have the first day of school jitters? I know I’ve got them. New school, new friends, new classes (chemistry! pray for me.) Overall, I’m looking forward to a fresh start. I’m finally starting the pre-requisite courses for my MS in Nutrition + RD certification. So yes, I’ll be taking chemistry. I cannot honestly say whether I’m overjoyed to finally have a career path or on the verge of a mental breakdown. I have a feeling all that paper writing for my Communications degree is not going to be so helpful here.
So, to ward off the new-ness butterflies in my stomach, a routine breakfast. Definitely my favorite oatmeal recipe. Thanks KERF for introducing me!
My Routine Oatmeal
1/2 cup oats (I like rolled or Coach’s Oats)
1/2 banana (sliced)
1 cup + 1 T water (or sometime I used 1/2 milk + 1/2 water)
optional toppings/mix ins: vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, granola, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, banana, peanut butter, chia or flax seeds, anything you can think of!
Combine oats and water on stove top and cook according to instructions. About half-way through cooking process, add banana. Let banana cook for ~1 min. Then, using a spatula or wooden spoon start whipping the oatmeal, breaking down the banana. Continue until oatmeal is done. Add toppings to your stomach’s desire.
And I’m off to class!
