Tropical Oats

I never used to eat oats, to be honest, I thought they were kind of blah. When I recently did a 3 week detox and cleanse (read about it here!) I started eating them, and now, I just can’t stop!

I didn’t realize how much fun the recipes could be – I’m all about customizing anything. When the whole Chipotle, or “build your own” concept came out, it was because of people like me – if you tell me I can add different things to the same foundation to make it unique… SOLD!

Since we just got home from Fiji, I’m still feeling the tropical vibe – we had fresh fruit every day, sometimes straight from the market, and it was amazing. I will say that the Costco pineapple I had today wasn’t quite as good, but it’s understandable since there are no Pineapple plants here in Ohio. BTW, did you know pineapples grow from a plant and NOT a tree? I knowwwww, mind blown. #lessonslearnedinfiji

I hope you enjoy these oats and they bring out a final splash of summer for you, before the world dives into pumpkin errrrythang.
