Three superfood foods, one simple dish, now that’s what I’m talking about!

Ever since native Colorado tea company Two Leaves and a Bud gave me a whole bunch of organic tea to bake and cook with, I wanted to make sure I tried everything from sweet, to savory, to unique. Tea isn’t something most people cook or bake with, but I have really enjoyed researching tea recipes and creating my own! Instead of going sweet on you, I decided to go savory this time with my green tea brown rice, topped with sweet-yet-salty-roasted sweet potatoes and healthy, crispy kale.

Hearty, healthy, oaty, yummy and most importantly, PUMPKINY!

This breakfast is so tasty and comforting on a chilly fall morning, it almost feels as if you’re indulging in a delicious pumpkin dessert, but you’re actually eating a healthy, tasty, and filling breakfast…no one said comfort food can’t be healthy!

If you have never made baked oatmeal, I highly suggest you try. I first was drawn to baked oatmeal through the website Budget Bytes. She has a gazillion different baked oatmeal recipes, like this pumpkin one, as well as blueberry banana, lemon raspberry, and cranberry apple to name a few. Talk about endless possibilities!
