Most of you know that I am in the process of selling my house. We have lived in this house for almost 15 years so we have never sold a house before.
I had no idea how stressful this is.
And by stressful I mean incredibly, unbelievably stressful.
I haven't been able to keep up with my weekly meal prep or even cook as much as I normally do. I TRIED to make a delicious roasted vegetable frittata for the blog (and for my dinner!) and then a realtor called and wanted to show the house.
Note to self: Baked eggs do not make your house smell nice.
Needless to say, those people didn't come back. I am not sure I blame them. I am sure you can imagine what my house smelled like.
Back to the drawing board. Ans that means no more cooking smelly foods, especially baked eggs.
I have been struggling trying to get healthy breakfasts for my kids. I know how much they love my Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal and my Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal but some days my middle schooler wakes up late and has to take his breakfast with him in the car. That's when I decided to make the baked oatmeal into cups that you can take along with you! It's not optimal, but at least I know he's eating a healthy breakfast.
The beauty of these babies is that you can make them with any additions you'd like. I used dried chopped cranberries, blueberries and tart cherries, but you can use whatever dried fruit you'd like. Or even chocolate chips, cacao nibs or nuts. Go for it, the possibilities are endless.
I use Now Foods Organic Triple Mega Seed Mix ALL THE TIME. Its a blend of raw hemp seed hearts, chia and flax and it's so incredibly versatile! I use it oatmeal, smoothies, granola, you name it. It's packed with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, fiber and protein. I go through this quickly so I recommend stocking up on it.
