It is so nice to get out of routine sometimes and mix up your ordinary habits. Faced with all of the yummy breakfast choices while on vacation in Mexico, I was drawn repeatedly to the oatmeal “bar” which included toppings I never would have imagined for a bowl of oatmeal. My favorite new combination of toppings is brown sugar, coconut flakes, cinnamon and pumpkin seeds.

Spring is in the air and it is making me want to bust out, change things up, find fresh ideas. It can be so refreshing to break the routine now and then. You can start by opening up your cupboards and putting a little something new on your oatmeal.
