Warm Maple Pumpkin Oats

It is officially fall here in Washington, DC! Leaves are falling, the air is getting cooler, sweaters and boots are making there way out and pumpkin recipes are EVERYWHERE! Today, I am sharing my recipe for Warm Maple Pumpkin Oats that I developed this weekend that is out of this world good!

For the past four weeks or so I have been doing the 21 Day Fix. For those of you who don’t know what it is, the 21 Day Fix is a program developed by Beach Body (same company who put out P90x and Insanity.) I have done both of those programs before and loved them, so I decided to see what this 21 Day Fix thing was all about! Needless to say, I am totally in love. It has been just what my body needed to re-start my metabolism and get me back on my game! What I love about this program most is the eating plan. There is no counting calories or calculating points involved, everything is done by portion control! 

Anyway, the reason that I share any of this is because I have been trying to implement more 21 Day Fix recipes into my blog! This program has done so much for me in the past few weeks and I hope to inspire others to give it a try!
