Green Girl Eats: Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal!

Pumpkin + Oatmeal = delicious, energizing breakfast. Green girl: get in your kitchen and get cooking today!

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
Yields: 2 servings

Adding some seasonal squash into your oatmeal creates a beautiful melding of flavors. Add pumpkin puree and spices to oats for a healthy breakfast that seems more like a treat!

1 cup filtered water
3/4 cup almond milk (or soy, rice, or organic milk)
pinch of salt
1 cup regular rolled oats
1/4-1/3 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
2 tablespoons organic sucanat* (or organic brown sugar)

Add the first 6 ingredients into a pot and mix together. Turn the heat on the lowest setting, cover the pot, and let mixture warm up for 10-15 minutes (this is the perfect time to get your makeup done, do a few crunches, walk the dog, etc).

Uncover the pot (the oatmeal should look dry and not-so-liquidy) and stir continuously, making the oatmeal mixture very sticky and chewy. When the oatmeal reaches desired consistency, stir in the sucanat.

Divide oatmeal into two bowls and top with pecans.

*Sucanat is a natural, whole cane sugar. It can be purchased at most grocery stores in the organic/natural foods sections.

Green Girl Advice: Ready, Set, Goal!

November 1 is the start of many things. It’s the start of daylight savings. It’s the start of a new month. And it marks the official start of National Goal-setting Week.

Goal-setting is a great technique to help you think about your ideal future and make it happen! By really thinking about specific, clearly-defined goals, you can pave the way to your personal dreams and desires.

Remember: You have the power to create the future you want.

So take out a pen and paper and start brainstorming.

Try answering this question: If your life could be anything you wanted it to be, what would it be right now? This question may spark some ideas for goals you’d like to set and achieve.

Good luck Green Girls!
Book a Get Green Girl event today. Our workshop, Achieving Your Innermost Desires and Dreams, focuses on goal-setting.
