Bright and early this morning, I met the POM bloggers for a continental breakfast in the hotel lobby. I never know what to expect with continental breakfasts, so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw a huge spread of healthy options!
I was especially psyched to see a mini oatmeal bar!
I swear, oatmeal is the only meal that holds me over for hours.
I also helped myself to some fresh fruit: cantaloup, watermelon, and orange slices.
The oatmeal was delicious– hearty, warm, and creamy. I added chopped walnuts, raisins, dried cranberries, and brown sugar to my bowl.
I also added a couple scoops of peanut butter for some serious staying power.
After breakfast, the group split-up into two vans to make the 2-hour long drive to the POM orchards.
There wasn’t anything for miles and miles, except gorgeous scenery.
On the drive, Caitlin and I sampled a peanut butter flavored POM BAR X.
