Oatmeal with Kiwi and Dried Cherries

I am SUCH a breakfast person.  I seriously get excited for breakfast every night before I go to bed.  Sad?  Adorable?  You decide.

Anyway, lately I've been OBSESSED with Kathy's Healthy Happy Life blog and have been scouring it to see what I can make with what I already have on hand (I'm making a modified version of her Kiwi Basil Smoothie later this afternoon and will post pictures to follow!).

For breakfast yesterday I made her Kiwi Cherry Almond Oatmeal, and I loved the combination!  My oatmeal usually consists of the "expected" add-ins--walnuts, raisins, coconut, cinnamon, brown sugar, etc.--but that gets boring!  And oats are so versatile, why not experiment with other ingredients?!  So I was really excited when I saw this recipe.  I love kiwi.  I love cherries (dried and otherwise).  I love almonds.  Boom.

My pictures are definitely not as pretty as hers but they still look tasty to me!


  1. Nothing is more comforting then a nice warm bowl of oatmeal. I am not a fan of adding fresh fruit inside but I like to eat it along side. Call me strange but its a texture issue lol You always take such awesome photos!

  2. You know what?! I'm actually the same way! I like the individual ingredients and think it looks somewhat *gourmet* but I'll still take a bowl of oatmeal with raisins, walnuts, brown sugar and cinnamon any day! Maybe I'll spice things up and toss in some dried cherries instead of raisins from time to time!
