Carrot Cake Oatmeal - My Way

Today is my birthday!  I'm celebrating the fact that I'm still alive!  I'm healthy!  I can run, not as fast, but I'm still hitting the pavement 5-6 days a week.  I enjoy a few workouts at Orange Theory each week, which kicks my trash. Basically I feel like I'm 20 years old until I look in the mirror.  Yikes!  I try my hardest to eat as healthy as possible.  I pretty much make everything from scratch.  I avoid processed foods like the plague.  I eat my greens and drink them too.  

On my birthday I give myself a gift of eating whatever I want.  If I have a birthday cake, I go for Carrot Cake or Chocolate, Chocolate, double loaded with Chocolate Cake. While perusing Pinterest for a great cake idea, I noticed many pins for Carrot Cake Oatmeal recipes.  This turned on a light in my head.  Wow!  I love oatmeal and I love carrot cake.  I can totally improve this recipe.  I can create the greatest birthday breakfast ever...Carrot Cake Oatmeal...MY WAY!  

The recipe is pretty simple.  You will need:

1 cup cooked oatmeal of choice (I'm using Bob's Redmill Steel cut)
1 slice Carrot Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Icing (because cinnamon and oatmeal are a match made in heaven)

Place one cup cooked oatmeal mixed with cream and maple syrup in a bowl.  Top with a large slice of carrot cake.  EAT!

It's not coincidence that it's National Women's Day on March 8th.  To all of you wonderful women born on this day, GO US!   I wish you a happy birthday.  Celebrate in style because you are one fabulous woman! 

 Oh...I think I'm going to be sick....

Next week...Green Juice!
