The Fit Collegiate

Pumpkin-Banana Oatmeal
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 cup water
1 banana, melted in microwave
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
(optional toppings) Love Grown cranberry pecan granola, dark chocolate chips, almonds, dried or fresh berries

This has become my new favorite breakfast! And dinner a couple of times.. Thanks to Anna who writes at The Fit Collegiate. It's warm, satisfying, yummy and filling! She's a rising junior going to college in Nashville (Yay! Southern girls represent) and promotes a healthy lifestyle while being off at school. She encourages girls, and college students in general, to maintain a balanced life- eating well and exercising- so that you don't gain the dreaded freshman 15 (or 20 was my case). She's managed to have a great college experience without losing self-control and putting on the pounds. Check out her site for good recipe and snack ideas! Thanks to her, i'm a new fan of veggie burgers. I tried one earlier this week and loved it- who knew! I can't wait to try some of the Trader Joe's and Amy's organic products as well!
