Something warm and savory!


If you’ve never had Savory Oats, you are missing out!  I know it sounds a bit weird, but trust me – savory oats are so tasty, especially with an over-easy egg on top.


Savory Oats




  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1 cup raw spinach, chopped
  • A few cherry tomatoes
  • 1 egg
  • Salt and pepper




  • In a small pot, cook oats, water, and milk on low.  Put chopped spinach on top, and when most of the liquid has cooked off, mix in the spinach, which should be wilting.
  • Meanwhile, in the wok, fry the egg in a bit of oil, flipping to create an over-easy egg.  Fry the tomatoes alongside the egg until browned.
  • Combine and enjoy!  Cheese tastes good with this, too.

ZOOMA Florida


As I’ve mentioned, I’m currently gearing up to run the ZOOMA Half Marathon in Amelia Island, Florida as a race ambassador.  I hope some of you are planning to join me!  I think the event will be amazing and the course will surely be beautiful.

If you’re near Amelia Island – or are thinking of making it a fun getaway weekend with friends – use the code ZOOMAHTP and receive 10% off your entry.  And if you sign up TODAY and use the promo code, ZOOMA will donate $10 to my favorite charity, Girls on the Run.  Girls on the Run is a character development program for elementary school girls that encourages them to find their voice and celebrate everyone’s uniqueness via running.  Sweet deal, huh?  10% off for you, $10 to GOTR! 


Seeya in Florida!

    I haven’t been able to jump on the savory oats train just yet. It seems so wrong. I’ve heard great things about the zooma race! I especially love that they offer to donate to the ambassadors favorite charity – that is great!

    And what a cute baby photographer. He is growing up so fast!

    Hm, those oats actually sound really good! I just recently got involved with GOTR. Great organization. Good luck on the half.

    I prefer Savory Oats over sweet oats. Something about the texture and sweetness always throws me off.

    This looks delicious!

  • Laura @ She Eats Well October 8, 2012, 10:32 am

    I agree with you 100%. Savory oats are amazingly delicious; nothing like topping them with a gooey fried egg.

    Guess what Caitin!? GOTR is finally coming to my area! I was at an info session for it last week and unfortunately it doesn’t look like I’m going to be able to coach as I’d wanted to since I can’t really get away from work until after 5:30 each night, but I’m so so happy that girls in this area are finally going to get to experience the program. Thanks for introducing me to it!

    Ok, I’m going to step outside of my comfort zone and give these oats a try!

  • Katie @ Peace Love & Oats October 8, 2012, 11:04 am

    I loooooove savory oats!!! And GOTR! I just ran for them as a solemate in the Chicago Marathon this weekend, and now I’ve got practice this afternoon! (I’m a coach too!)

    I’ll have to try these savory oats! And that picture of Henry’s hand on the camera is precious.

    I’ve never had savory oats–but as I don’t necessarily love sweeter ones, I might like it!

  • Ashlee October 8, 2012, 2:05 pm

    I think you just made my dinner plans! Mm!

  • Ellen @ Wannabe Health Nut October 8, 2012, 5:09 pm

    I tried savory oats for the first time a few months ago after seeing them on your blog. Loved it! Stirring in a little bit of hummus is yummy too. 🙂

  • Mary October 8, 2012, 7:01 pm

    I love nutritional yeast stirred into my savory oats-YUM!

    Henry’s eye color is gorgeous!!
