Please excuse my absence.... and a summer breakfast idea!

I must start by apologizing.  Thing have been super crazy here!   I've changed careers (I'm now a personal trainer).... I'm still planning my wedding..... and we are in the process of moving - twice!  But I've been here the whole time (just not posting) - and I've still been experimenting with easy healthy recipes!  

It definitely feels like summertime here already, even though the first official day of summer isn't until next Friday!  It's been hot and humid - and exercising outside is only advisable now if it's early in the morning or late in the evening (though I left for work at 4am yesterday and it was already super humid out then!)

If you know me, you know I'm a huge advocate of eating breakfast!  It starts your day off right, fuels your body, and gets your metabolism going.  

I LOVE greek yogurt.... and I also enjoy oatmeal.  Today I combined them for a quick easy breakfast packed with protein! 

I used: 
1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein (Body Fortress)
1 packet Better Oats Oat Fit Maple & Brown Sugar oatmeal
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1 packet stevia (Or sweetener of choice)

Combine all ingredients in a bowl.  Mix well.  I added about 1 tbsp water to make everything mix easier (since oatmeal is dry and greek yogurt is super thick).  Eat as is!  You can also mix this up the night before and put in the fridge for a grab & go breakfast.  This would also be great with added chia seeds!
