|Green is good.|
How would you like a morning meal that takes minutes to make and is healthy? That is what I have been looking for since I started training for a half marathon. In order to get longer runs in I have had to get up early a few Saturdays and have little time for fuel. This has left me dragging through my runs. At a recent running clinic the girls and I discovered an amazing new way to enjoy oatmeal.
Since my husband works late hours a lot I take the girls with me almost everywhere. Recently they attended a fitness and nutrition running clinic sponsored by our local grocery store. I set the girls up with fruit from the salad bar and a movie. They ate the fruit and ignored the movie. Fortunately the dietitians know us and were very accommodating. When Audrey begged for more to eat they started making a recipe they call Swiss Oatmeal. Mo helped and both girls devoured their helpings.
For the upcoming holiday we adapted the amazing dish to make it festive.
Witches Morning Gruel
- 1 to 1 1/2 cups Minute Oats
- 1 cup yogurt
- 1 small can crushed pineapple in juice
- 1/4 cup chopped nuts
- 4 tbsp spinach puree
Those of you who do not make green monsters might be a little unsure about the spinach puree. Spinach is an amazing puree to use because it is almost completely tasteless when cold. We use it to make green eggs.
Do yourself a favor and make a batch of gruel for quick fuel so you can be ready for whatever your week brings.
|A simple meal.|
