And when we say oatmeal, we mean the real deal— made with rolled-oats, fruit, homemade almond milk, chia seeds, and a dash of cinnamon–not the Quaker oatmeal packets of sugary mush, stuff.

Yes. The glorious answer is, yes.

When I was a kid, I used to hope, wish, and dream that I could eat cookies for breakfast (It might have had something to do with this commercial). I tried with all my might and with all my greatest persuasion skills, to try to convince my mom to buy Cookie Crisp, knowing full well that although those weren’t real … Read more...
