7 Days of Oatmeal ~ Day 1 (Chocolate Berry Oatmeal)

This week’s theme:  7 days of Oatmeal.  Every variety and option under the zoning sun!  One each day this week!

The thing about writing a blog is that you sometimes have to make sacrifices!  That’s right people!  I have this long list of recipes that I zoned and love, but did I take a picture of it?  Heck NO!  And while I write this post it’s grey and gross and snowing!  ICK!  I think mother nature forgot about Wyoming!  My point here is that I ate breakfast for every meal today!  Yep, that’s right!  I had this particular oatmeal for lunch so that I could get a great picture.  And then had Banana Vanilla Bean Pancakes for dinner (Read the post people!  This one is FABULOUS!).  I guess this is the life of a blogger.  Making sacrifices!  But I do it because I love all of you!!

I also had to add this little saying!  I hope you have a fabulous week and take care of your body!!


Now I know you Paleo eaters out there do NOT do oatmeal, but it is allowed on the Zone and is one of my favorite breakfast meals!!  I eat it almost every morning for breakfast!  *Remember me?  Boring & Predictable??*  Here is what my breakfast bowl looks like on most mornings:
