Cake for Breakfast

How transforming humble oatmeal gets the ball rolling for other life changes.

It’s not really cake for breakfast. Think of these oats as a way to mix up your morning routine. And if you’re open to adding some grated carrots, imagine the other tweaks you could make to the rest of your day. First oatmeal, then taking 10 minutes a day to launch your dream project. Again, it’s just oatmeal. Kind of like it’s just life. But the things you put into it are what makes it taste so much better. The way you tweak it and make it your own, that’s what makes it (and life) so delicious. Meanwhile back to the oatmeal.

        Another addition to my overnight oats: Trader Joe’s Jumbo Raisin Blend soaked overnight in orange juice. Pairs beautifully with the orange zest!
