My top 10 favourite oatmeal toppings and their health benefits

It should come as no surprise that one of my favourite foods are oats, as I made them an honourable mention in my ‘my life in 26 words’ post. I like to switch things up and vary between warm porridge and cold oats with plant milk.

Although I could write an endless list of toppings that I have tried and loved in the past, today I want to focus on my ultimate top 10 oatmeal toppings and their health benefits.

My social media routine

I used to be incredibly busy. Every day felt like a race against the clock. Trying to squeeze in exercise daily, cooking from scratch each night, meditating, socialising with friends, cleaning the house, spending quality time with my boyfriend and pursuing creative interests seemed impossible on top of a full-time job.

Month in review: October

Where do I start with this one? October has been absolutely manic for me. My boyfriend and I received the keys to our new apartment at the beginning of the month, and with that, a crazy few weeks of cleaning and decorating (and more cleaning) began. I’ll be honest.

That was a bitter pill to swallow. The decorating process has given me more breakdowns than I signed up for. It has been annoyingly slow. And we are still a long way from calling the new place our home. So as I mentally prepare for another manic month of homeownership, here are my reflections on the month gone.
