This baked oatmeal tastes just like a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks. Mmm.
I like making baked oatmeal in the morning because I just mix all the ingredients together, pour into a ramekin, and put in the oven. Then, I go about my business, showering and walking the dogs, and when I come back – it’s ready!
The recipe for Pumpkin Spice Latte Baked Oatmeal is on my breakfast recipes page. 🙂
Come back for lunch because I’ll be announcing the Breville raffle for the Livestrong Foundation! The juicer retails at $179, but you can get a ticket for $5… and it all goes to charity! Wahoo!
Help For Injured Athletes
A sweet reader named Kathy sent me this email: I always thought your knee injury story and how you ran after that really inspiring. I was reading the local paper (Austin, TX) today at lunch and there was an article about a local man who was hit by a truck while running. He broke his neck, back, pelvis, multiple ribs and other bones. He felt defeated and thought he would never run again.
Well, he overcame his injuries and went on to run a marathon! The article is here if you want to check it out (it’s not long). The reason why I wanted to tell you about him is because he started a website called IWillAgain.com. It kind of reminds me of an Operation Beautiful for injured athletes!
From the website: "IWillAgain.com is a web community of support for athletes overcoming, accident, illness, or injury by providing a forum for athletes to share their story, their goals and progress, and to allow others to share in their revival through encouragement, advice, mentoring, and prayer."
Seems like a cool site for injured athletes – check it out!
What obstacles have you overcome to get where you are now? It doesn’t have to be a physical injury! I think it’s so powerful to look back and see what you’ve overcame and accomplished.
