Crunchy Pumpkin Cranberry Granola


Greek yogurt and fruit is a very common breakfast for T.W.O. But lately, this dish has been missing something- crunch! So since it is Fall (even though the weather doesn’t feel like it in California!), we decided to add some Fall flavor to granola! This recipe is so simple and yet so flavorful! The best part about it too is that it is healthy, gluten free and full of nutrients to help start your morning off right. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Overnight Oats…Oh, Oh!


Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But many people often skip breakfast because they do not have time to prepare it or are just too lazy. Don’t let yourself be categorized as one of these people. Start your morning right by preparing your breakfast the night before! Overnight oats is a simple, healthy breakfast option that makes skipping breakfast impossible! All you got to do is let it sit in the refrigerator overnight and then heat it up in the morning. BAM! Now you are off to a great morning start!


 -1/2 rolled oats
-3/4 cup almond milk
-1/4 cup Greek Yogurt


 Place rolled oats, almond milk and Greek yogurt into a jar. Mix well. Close the jar and refrigerate overnight.



In the morning, place oatmeal into a bowl. You might need to add a little more almond milk if you like your oatmeal on the “soupier “side. Heat up oatmeal for 1-2 minutes in the microwave. Add in anything you like- brown sugar, agave, fruit, vanilla extract, peanut or almond butter, dried fruit, etc.! T.W.O. added brown sugar, bananas and peanut butter to their oatmeal this time. Get creative and start your morning with a tasty, healthy meal!
