6 Pack Abs Oatmeal - Pinterest Pass or Fail
I pinned this recipe for Oatmeal from Men's Health to my Workin' on my Fitness Board. It claimed to liven up boring oatmeal and keep you full till lunch. Since my big 4-0 birthday is coming up in May, I'm on a fitness kick for a birthday trip to Key West my husband is planning for April, so this looked like it was worth a try.
1 cup 1% milk
3/4 cup plain instant oatmeal
1/2 banana, sliced
1 Tbsp peanut butter
1 tsp honey
1 tsp ground flaxseed
Dash of brown sugar
Mix everything together in a microwave-safe bowl and nuke for 2 minutes. Remove and let cool for a minute or two.

I give this a Pinterest Pass! This recipe was easy to prepare on a busy morning and tasted good. It was a little thin for my taste, but that could have been because I used old-fashioned oats rather than instant. I have to admit, I could only eat half the portion so that nutritional information was a little off for me but it was still filling and held me over until lunch.
Last week, Payne-less Photography Blog shared a Pinterest recipe for S'mores Bars she passed with flying colors.
And Northern Cottage shared a bunch of projects that have "Pin-spired" her on Pinterest!
