Here is another healthy baked oatmeal recipe for you! There is no added refined sugar, oil, butter, nada! Even better it allows you to get your protein, vitamin C, fiber and some omega’s in with today’s recipe. Add your shredded, unsweetened coconut on top so that it comes out nice and toasty ;).

Go over and check out to see if it was you! (Feel free to take a peek at that delicious and healthy cheesecake while you’re at it 😉 )
Second order of business? An APOLOGY!!
OK, so I just found out that my contact form has not been working. SO if you have tried to email me and you haven’t gotten a response it’s because I never got the email! I AM SO SORRY! I know there have been clicks on that form (and I was always like..hmm that’s weird, why click on something that says contact me and not send an actual email, but just thought that maybe people wanted to see what exactly that tab had on it? I don’t know) But, for those of you who tried to email me, please don’t think that I would just ignore your questions! I would never! The problem has been fixed, so if you accept my apology I would love for you to resend your questions so that they may be answered as they ought to have been!
Third order of business? A Story!
So, I was leaving the office the other day and was walking back to my “room”. I was just minding my business and all walking on the curb instead of the sidewalk because 1. It’s more fun that way 2. Gotta exert my inner gymnast of course 3. I’m still a child remember? We’ve talked about this haha.
Anyway, the next thing I know a cop pulls up next to me. I was immediately like, “OMG GREAT, he probably thinks I’m drunk, or something” and then I think “OH SHOOT? Is this considered road?”
Why did I think that? Well the day prior I walked a different, new route and ahem.. me walking in the street… stopped abruptly and looked around when I came up on a sign that read:
“DO NOT WALK IN THE ROAD. VIOLATORS WILL BE PUNISHED”.
No, it didn’t say “fined”, or something less dramatic. I was all like “punished?” What a scary word. Luckily, no one was around and I hopped back on the sidewalk that that. However, this is why I wondered if they considered curb= road since I wasn’t all that far away from the other route.
He goes: “You are just walking for exercise right?’
Me: more confused (isn’t that strange wording for a question?) and deciding that yes he probably thinks I’m drunk say, “Yes?” I mean I suppose you could say that. I was merely just walking back.
He goes: ” Ok, I thought so. If not I was going to offer you a ride and take you to wherever you’re headed”.
Me: still confused, but very pleased that 1. I’m not about to be punished and 2. He didn’t flat out ask me what I was frolicking on the curb just said something like “Oh thanks, I’m good!” and that was that.
Now I think it’s just time to ponder what had just happened with food of course! Perhaps while your baking this baked oatmeal recipe?
Anybody else think that story was weird?
Anybody else have a run in with the cops? (hehe I know I know, my run in was benign)
