The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC. I eat oatmeal daily, sometimes paired with over-easy eggs (which I also eat daily).

Yesterday, I opened my freezer door and found a brand new, never-opened bag of mixed frozen fruit containing strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries.

Every so often, you’ve got to do it. You know? Sometimes, it’s just gotta happen, when breakfast for dinner is warranted. When I was a kid, it was because we wanted a little celebration, or maybe we forgot to take out dinner in time and were stuck with what to make, and eggs, bacon and […]
