It’s getting a little chilly outside, and this is the time of year that I usually switch my breakfast from frozen fruit smoothies to hot oatmeal. There’s something comforting about hot oatmeal on a cold day. I’ll admit that I used to totally detest oatmeal. I found it so mushy and bland. Why not just eat paste? But once I started adding foods like pumpkin, bananas and peanut butter, I realized that oatmeal can be a great thing. Elvis Oatmeal is one off my favorite ways to eat it.

- 2 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk
