Real food breakfast, made with pumpkin love: Coach’s oats, chia, milk, water, salt (no banana – I’m out :( ), 1/2 cup pumpkin and 1/4 cup cottage cheese, stirred in at end. Plus Cville Cluster (the last bit – no clusters left!) and Barney Butter

Ah! Happy birthday Larbs!!

I had pumpkin Coach’s Oats the other day too – SO SO delicious! Also? I LOVE the last bits of Cville Cluster…almost as much as the delicious clusters themselves!

Have a great day Kath! :)

this reminds me, thank you for your love of oats, I am so in love with all things oats now! AND now that it’s fall I am (like you) putting pumpkin in them in every way possible! It is making my morning spectacular!!!!

I get disappointed when there are no clusters left in my granola! :( I also have to comment on your frother, because I ordered one from Amazon last week and CANNOT wait to use it. I’m hoping it gets here today. Oh it’s the little things that make a girl happy. :) Have a wonderful Tuesday!

You inspired my oatmeal breakfast. I usually want savory and use my oatmeal as a afternoon snack, but today I had what was like an oatmeal raisin cookie in a bowl. Thanks for the inspiration.

Totally cute button! Real food, home cooked meal is SO much better than a quick meal from fast food.
Have fun at your presentation! It’s not a time share presentation, is it? ;)

I soooo love that button. I had overnight oats that tasted like pumpkin pie (so sad that I used up the last of the pumpkin pie spice). Soooo in love with pumpkin! Mmmmm….

Glad to see you were able to grab some breakfast for your birthday! It looks birthday worthy and I’m especially digging the pumpkin right now. Still contemplating whether I should add it to my bowl of Kellogg’s FiberPlus in the morning…any thoughts?

27 Cat @Breakfast to Bed October 18, 2011 at 9:50 am

that bowl is tilted and I love it. Also? what makes you use water instead of milk? I tend to use vanilla almond milk for the sweetness. It doesn’t taste like barney butter flavored cardboard soup?

Reply

28 KathEats October 18, 2011 at 8:35 pm

I use 50% water/50% milk – always. I get the protein + cream of milk plus the plumping and volume of the water

I love the button and I really need to jump on the pumpkin because I’m totally missing out this year!

34 Kim @ Spoonful of Sass October 18, 2011 at 10:17 am

Every time I see those bowls they make me think of the big retro swivel chairs…like the one the kid has in his room in Sleepless in Seatle! Totally random, I know!

Haha I had the opposite problem this morning: I was all put of pumpkin, so it was banana oats for me!

How could people not like real food when it looks and tastes like that? Good luck today!

Kath, you should try the line of nut butters by Peanut Principle. My favorite is their Banana Peanut Butter. YUM!

Been wondering how Karen is doing. She has been on my mind and hoping she is recovering like she is supposed to be. Not meaning to pry, just think of her so often with this being ‘Cancer awareness’ time of the year.

50 KathEats October 18, 2011 at 8:36 pm

Thanks for asking – she’s good, and she’s actually in ITALY right now on a bike trip! That’s why she’s been MIA.

51 Angelea October 23, 2011 at 9:57 am

Wow! How fabulous. I hope she’ll share a few photos when she returns. Go, Karen! :)

52 Katie October 18, 2011 at 12:47 pm

Where did she find that button? I need one, or one box full! I had pumpkin oats this morning and just made some pumpkin bread. I just bought 12 cans of pumpkin that were on sale for $0.99 (just the 15 oz, not the monstrous 6 or 7 lb cans like you are able to get). I’ll certainly be heading back to buy some more later this week. Happy 26th birthday to your sis, 26 sounds so young! Hope you enjoyed the presentation – did you guys present or were you just attending?

I want to go swimming in that bowl of oatmeal and never come back out.

This post made me realize it has been way too long since I last had pumpkin oatmeal! That needs to change pronto.

60 Noelle October 18, 2011 at 6:19 pm

Kath, do you use no salt added cottage cheese or just regular low fat cottage cheese? I’ve been wondering this forever and finally took the time to ask!

Reply

61 KathEats October 18, 2011 at 8:36 pm

Regular ole organic low-fat

62 Becca October 18, 2011 at 6:20 pm

Happy Birthday to your Sis! And gotta love the pumpkin. I started following your blog last year and saw that you put pumpkin in your oatmeal. I tried it and I am hooked! When the fall season comes, I can’t wait to have my canned pumpkin!
