Where do good days come from? Good mornings, naturally. 😉
And, isn't oatmeal the perfect way to start the day?
This morning, I started my day with a warm bowl of Quaker Instant Oatmeal to which I added vanilla soy milk, raisins, agave nectar, and ground flaxseed meal. So delish!
To help inspire everyone to discover the perfect oatmeal creation for their day, Quaker has developed a “CrEATe Your Day” digital application on Quakeroats.com and Facebook. Simply input information on the day ahead-- whether it's your day or a friend's-- and the application will create a custom virtual oatmeal creation and inspirational message known as an “Oatmail.” You can send the Oatmail to yourself or a friend or even share it via social networking sites.
To participate in the Quaker Oatmeal Create Your Day program, I was compensated for writing this post regarding my Quaker experience. Quaker did not tell me what type of creations I should make nor did they require me to use any specific ingredients. My statements reflect my honest and truthful opinions and actual experience. And, I love oatmeal, so I was happy to participate!
With my oatmeal, I also ate half of a pink grapefruit and drank a glass of iced coffee with vanilla soy milk.
While I practically bounded out of bed ready to eat breakfast, Murphy took a much more relaxed approach to the morning.
He's definitely not a morning dog. Mondays are especially tough for him.
