Cinammon Orange & Kream Oatmeal

Here we go again; me & my oatmeal. I lovelovelove oatmeal/carbs so much it's ridiculous!! Good thing it's good for me, right?
This would also be yummy without the almond mylk in it, but if you're going to omit it, I would add a teaspoon of agave, just for sweetness. That, or you can just mash up the orange real good :)
I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before or not, but oatmeal is actually a "happy" food. It increases serotonin levels in your brain & creates feelings of happiness. I know I always feel good after a bowl of oatmeal :) It also gives me a lot of energy, & is great for improving digestion.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup steel cut oats, soaked overnight & drained
2 tbs raw vanilla almond mylk
1-2 tsp cinammon
1 small satsuma orange (or half of a large orange)

Directions:
1) Top oatmeal with mylk, cinammon, & peeled orange. Mix together & enjoy :)

Hi Shannon!
If you click on "Edit Your Page" on your Facebook fan page, & then scroll down...on the right hand side there will be a link that says "Promote with Faceboook Badge." Click on "Get Your Badge." It will then let you choose where you want to add your badge (Blogger), & will give you the code. You can copy & paste the code onto your "Edit Page Layout" in Blogger. Sounds way more confusing than it is :P Let me know if you get stuck!
