As soon as I tasted this green smoothie, I knew that it was bound to be the best in its class.
So I took it to the gym, coached it as it worked out tirelessly. I fed it all the finest nutritional ingredients, ensuring its health and vitality. I took it to college classes, making sure to grow its brain with its body.
Friends, I am so excited! I have been in a little bit of a creative funk for the past few weeks, with little motivation to create or photograph new recipes, and I just hit a wave of inspiration. Maybe its just that I am finally feeling at home in our new world of California and our new lifestyle as college students, but I am feeling good and I am excited to share all of the goodness and happiness with you!
Up on today’s yummy food agenda is this warm baked strawberry oatmeal. It is so perfect for a chilly fall day. Plus, it is so much less labor intensive that stove-top oatmeal. With this one, you can just pour all of the ingredients into an oven safe bowl, pop it into the oven for 35-40 minutes, and prepare your cuddly warm reading space while it bakes. Then when its done, let it cool for about five minutes, and then dig right in.

Baking these fries is really one of the easiest healthy food swaps. I make it a goal here to seek out the yummiest and the healthiest foods to share with you, and this baked french fry recipe is one that I have worked on for a while without sharing because I wanted to perfect the technique to make it as yummy and as healthy as possible. After figuring out a great method and trying out the completed recipe MANY times, I finally took photos before eating them all I finally decided that it was ready to share.
Since moving down to California, the weather made fall time a little less exciting. It has been 75 degrees and sunny just about every day, and I am NOT complaining, but it certainly makes the seasons kind of blend together.
