Eaten Alive

October 31, 2011

Good morning!

IMG_0041Blog

Glad to be alive today? That is, unless you are a zombie or a ghost.

I considered having a Snickers bar or Butterfinger for breakfast, but instead decided on a bowl of yogurt topped with hot cinnamon apple, banana, crumbled Apple Streusel teacake from the bakery, sunflower butter and sprinkles.

This teacake is like a soft real food muffin topped with a crunchy streusel. I won’t tell you how much of the teacake topping is now gone :oops: It was eaten alive.

Happy Halloween!! This looks absolutely incredible. I went the same type of route – oatmeal as a base though with pumpkin and apples in the mix…and OF COURSE Halloween sprinkles to top it off :)

Enjoy the day!

Happy Halloween! Nice festive breakfast :) I did pumpkin oats topped with pumpkin butter, eaten with a backdrop of 15 inches of snow on the deck…such a weird Halloween!

I, too, started my day with a cup of hot pumpkin spiced tea. So good. Mine didn’t have foam. At the moment I don’t use milk in my tea.

I think your Halloween breakfast was a much better choice than a few candy bars! Way better for you. :) I sweetened up my bowl of Kellogg’s FiberPlus cereal too this am in honor of Halloween – a dash of cinnamon and a few banana slices. Yum!

Happy Halloween. I am cold, and your cozy looking tea is making me want some. I think I will go brew up some Apple Cider Tea to be festive since I don’t have any pumpkin spice!

I almost forgot it was halloween today, maybe that’s because I’m eating the same breakfast for the past 2 weeks…without alterations! lol. Have a great one!

30 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning October 31, 2011 at 9:38 am

Alright, all this foam business has gotten to me- I need to go get my own “foamer” now too. Did you say you got it at Ikea for like, $2? There’s no Ikea very close to me… I wonder if I could find one online.
Happy Halloween!!

Yes, IKEA for $2!

What a festive breakfast! Sprinkles make everything at least 10x more fun to eat, and Halloween is definitely the perfect excuse to pile them on. Happy Halloween–enjoy the candy!

Totally addicted to the streusel topping which is why I don’t put it on the schedule at our store that often! Super yummy…

Love your festive breakfast! I opted for a dark chocolate pb cup melted onto my oats for a Halloween treat, candy craving totally satisfied now. Candy for breakfast is what Halloween is about right :) Have a fun day!

So colorful and festive. They say we eat with our eyes first and having all those colors makes food look appetizing.

I wonder what your costume will be this year. I dressed up as cave woman this weekend.
