Currently my go-to breakfast is a homemade bowl of warming oatmeal! Personally, I find that it warms my body as well as leaves me feeling full and satisfied for hours afterwards.
The one thing I really enjoy about homemade oatmeal is that you can create different toppings every time to "change it up" as well as even cook things into the oatmeal such as apples. Howeverrrrrr, my fave right now is with banana and peanut butter. I had a couple people reach out to me on my Instagram (if you are not already following me on there, make sure you do @holisticallyhumble) to share this recipe.
