Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

Yesterday I ran my first full marathon. I didn’t collapse or walk at all and was able to sprint through the finish line (thanks to friends I met during the race)! When I saw my husband, mom, and dad at the finish, I started crying. This is a huge accomplishment for me and without their support (and all my other friends, family, and clients) I would have struggled {more}. I will have a separate blog post for more details about my race, especially describing how I mentally and physically got through the race. After the race I had a delicious meal at the Reading Terminal, a beer, cookie, and later for dinner I had an apple and this delicious bowl of oatmeal. I am telling you, I crave this pumpkin oatmeal bowl!

This pumpkin spice oatmeal has been my go-to breakfast. I wake up looking forward to it! Filled with pumpkin puree, omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, protein, and flavor while staying low in sugar. You will be satisfied until lunch time with this oatmeal.
