Firstly, does my blog not look amazing?! And that is no thanks to me, so I can say that without sounding like a snot!! 😉 Julie recently started offering blog services, and I couldn’t be happier with her work! Thanks, Julie!! 😀
I want to start today’s post off with a little bit of excitement. Well, it excited me anyways.
Kroger had pineapples on sale 10 for $10! Be still, my heart!! I called Mr. Prevention on my way out of the parking lot. He probably thought I’d won the lotto with the excitement in my voice. Nope, just $1 pineapples! Woot! 😀
I enjoyed last week’s pre-made breakfast, Quiche Cornbread, so much that I wanted to make another pre-made breakfast this week! With little time on Sunday after a late night hockey game, I settled on a really quick crock pot breakfast.
**Reminder! You can’t judge a crock pot recipe based on looks alone!!**
2 cups steel cut oats
2 cups coconut milk
1 cup skim milk
3 1/2 cups water
2 cinnamon sticks
1 lb frozen peaches
1/4 tsp salt
Spray crock pot with non-stick cooking spray. Combine all of the ingredients in the crock pot and stir well. Cook on low 7-10 hours. Sweeten with your choice of sweetener (I used 1 packet of Truvia). Serves 5 (1 1/3 cup per serving).
Nutrition Information (per serving): 323 calories; 5.4 g. fat; 1 mg. cholesterol; 122 mg. sodium; 55.4 g. carbohydrate; 7.8 g. fiber; 9.2 g. protein
Result: This was good and very filling! It’s not THE BEST oatmeal ever, but you can add in any goodies to make it THE BEST oatmeal ever 😉 I would suggest ground cinnamon, honey or agave, fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, etc. I love that it’s low in fat and sodium and high in fiber. While most breakfasts don’t tide me over for longer than 4-5 hours, this kept me satisfied from 6:30am to 12pm. Enjoy!
I have a brief date with the elliptical this morning…off I go! I hope the weather is better where ever you are!
Question: What is your favorite way to eat pineapple? Any great recipe suggestions?
