Trending: Coated Skinny Jeans

I recently talked about my favorite denim trend for fall - traditional skinny jeans. But as the fall denim guides come out, I'm reminded of a few more favorites, like boyfriend jeans and coated denim. Ken and I recently saw some coated skinnies at Target, so it looks like the trend will be widely available this year and at various price points. Image via Amazon Fashion

Banana Bread Spiced Oatmeal


The holidays are a very hard time for me to eat healthy. There's pumpkin-spice everything, apple pie, and countless variations of banana bread. Just burning my fall-scented candles makes me crave an autumn dessert. I try to get my fix with spiced oatmeal. I like to add a chopped apple or some pumpkin pure along with spices like cinnamon and nutmeg to give me that taste of fall without all of the calories. My recent way of making my morning oatmeal gives me a healthier fix whenever I'm craving banana bread. With the sweetness from a ripe banana and stevia in place of sugar, this hearty and satisfying breakfast comes in around 250 calories. Garnish with almonds for added protein.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats + water for boiling
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg and ginger
  • 1 tsp vanilla 
  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 2 packets Stevia
  • slivered almonds for garnish (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Add the oats and all the ingredients aside from the banan to a small pot and fill with just enough water to cover the oats.

2. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and let simmer for a few minutes.

3. Add the banana right into the pot and use a fork or hand-held masher to mash it up. You can leave it lumpy if you want to. Stir and simmer for a few more minutes until thickened. Enjoy!
