Breakfast Time - Healthy Style

For the month of November, I'm trying to go without sugar or wheat. Unfortunately, that rules out most "easy" meals. I saw this recipe on Pinterest and was immediately drawn to it because it has "Pumpkin Pie" in the title. I love anything having to do with pumpkin. I also love it because it has no sugar or wheat in it! I decided to try it out this morning and was very happy with how it turned out. Oatmeal is the easiest breakfast in the world to make. I usually make it for breakfast and put a handful of dried cranberries and a sliced banana in it but today I just wanted something different.

I pretty much followed the recipe but didn't add the eggs and cut the recipe in half since there were only two of us to eat it. I also didn't add any pecans since my husband has a nut allergy. The total time for making it was about 10 minutes. Not too shabby!

I know the pictures don't look too yummy, but trust me when I say it was. I'll probably be having it for breakfast again tomorrow morning. As a nutritional bonus here (I just have to add this in!), you'll be getting a serving of vegetables and fibre first thing in the morning. The fibre will leave you feeling fuller for longer and the pumpkin has great antioxidants in it that makes your skin look healthy and glow. If you want more of the nutritional information, check out It's a great source for some fantastic recipes. Enjoy!
