Gluten-Free, Vegan Banana Nut Baked Oatmeal
Happy New Year!
I figured my first post of the new year should be a resolution-friendly one. Just in case you’re feeling… weighty… after what seemed like an eternal holiday season. Other than feeling good about what you’re eating, this Gluten-Free, Vegan Baked Banana Nut Oatmeal tastes delicious topped with just about anything you might be craving: shredded coconut, nut butter, maple syrup, fresh berries, yogurt, dried fruit, applesauce, apple butter….even some combination of these toppings would make it over-the-top wonderful!
Speaking of resolutions, have you made any?
To be honest, I never make them. I feel like I have room for improvement all year long. Perhaps in April, I realize I need to kick a bad habit or re-think how I act or respond to something. Then, I’ll evaluate and commit to a resolution. But if I make one now – just because – it won’t feel authentic. Or something like that.
Here are some things I’d like to tackle in 2018, though:
- Work smarter
As a blogger, I spend a lot of time on social media, which is good for marketing but bad for distraction. The day will slip by so quickly and I need to make sure I have accomplished the most important things first.
- Constantly re-evaluate
Throughout 2017, I did some social media / digital marketing / networking experiments to see what would happen and whether what I did was an effective use of time and resources. With some rudimentary knowledge now in place, I plan to implement much of what I learned and continue to tweak what works and what doesn’t.
- Ask for more help
Let’s be honest. I don’t know everything. And I can’t do everything. Along with working smarter, I need to limit myself to what I can accomplish effectively. No more trying to learn code or plug-ins or SEO strategies under the cover of darkness. I end up spinning my wheels and wasting precious time, when I could just ask someone who knows the stuff.
So, that’s my plan. We’ll see how it goes.
In the meantime, you can pen your resolutions while enjoying this hearty and healthy breakfast!
