I notice a slight blush of color on the trees, and the mornings are nippy.
With this change, my body tells me to shift my food selection. I begin to crave warmer and hardier foods.
One of my fall season favorites is oatmeal.
Below, however, is my new favorite oatmeal dish. It is very simple and very filling.
I have found it also satisfies my deep coconut desires!
To your bowl of oatmeal, add desired amount of honey or maple syrup, and blend. Top it with grated, fresh (unsweetened) coconut, nuts, and a huge dollop (or two) of coconut milk. All quantities can be adjusted.
I love mixed nuts or almond slivers. Add bananas or seasonal fruit if desired.
What do you look forward to eating in the fall?
Happy fall equinox!
