Orange Foods – Pumpkin Oats

My mom said when I was little I used to love all orange foods…sweet potatoes, carrots and pumpkin! Well, I haven’t changed at all in this aspect!

Too bad my mom didn’t know about pumpkin oats when I was a kid – I would have gobbled it up! In the bowl: 1/3c oats, water, soy milk, vanilla, stevia, pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin and chia seeds. I added some brown sugar after the pic. I’m curious how this bowl is going to keep me full since I didn’t add any nut butter. We’ll see. IMG 47411 400x300 Orange Foods   Pumpkin Oats

    Jessica – my oats have oats, a whole banana, soy milk and sugar. It often is 400 calories. I didn’t count it up for today, but also didn’t add in the handful of blubes I ate while cooking :)

    I want to love pumpkin oats but for some reason mine always turn out pretty bland and underwhelming! This morning though I had CHOCOLATE oats! It was fantastic! Highly recommend it!

    I like orange food, too. I just discovered pumpkin oats, but I have to be careful not to add too much pumpkin, or it’s too gourdy for my tastes. It’s kind of odd because I love all forms of squash.
    Too bad about the half; the Fitbloggin conference is a good excuse, though.
    If you’re looking for another (somewhat local) half marathon to participate in, there is the Marine Corps Historic Half in May. I think it’s May 16 in Fredericksburg, VA. I was going to run in it, but my husband is deploying and I don’t have anyone to watch our daughter.
    Just a thought.
