Cocoa Oats + Recipe Votes

Things have been surprisingly busy even though I’m not currently teach or attending Zumba classes.

I made oatmeal the other day for the first time in possibly a couple weeks and I think I had forgotten how good it was. Yuuuuuum!

This bowl was cooked stove-top with the following:

  • rolled oats
  • 1/2 water
  • 1/2 vanilla soy milk
  • unsweetened cocoa powder
  • chia seeds

And then these went on top:

  • sliced almonds
  • coconut flakes
  • cacao nibs

Side note – I’m kind of looking forward to fall already – especially pumpkin oatmeal! I know I can eat pumpkin oatmeal any time of year, but I really think it tastes best when the weather is on the chilly side and the trees outside are golden and red.

Earlier this week, I met up with friends Brittney (and Clyde), Katie, and Jennifer at Yoforia.

I was sad to see my latest favorite, banana, wasn’t available, but I happily filled my cup up with 2 other faves – tart plain and tart pomegranate. I added lots of fruit on top – kiwi, strawberries, mango, plus coconut flakes and of course mochi.

It was so fun catching up with everyone. I felt like I hadn’t seen them in forever!

I even got to start chatting with Katie about our epic road trip to HLS. That’s right…we’re driving there! HLS or bust!

Clyde was totally the center of attention…

…with us and with lots of strangers. Can you blame everyone for wanting to see him – just look at that adorable face! :)
