Childhood Favorite Revisited

Happy Monday friends!

It has been a quiet week here on the blog. I woke up last Sunday with my back all out of whack. 😦  I guess all the moving, traveling, pet sitting, different beds (and lack of bed) this summer finally got to my back. Today I can finally move without a ton of pain. My chiropractor, essential oils, stretching and massage balls have helped a lot. I also went on Saturday and got a 90 min massage by a professional and that helped get a few knots out! I wasn’t able to workout all week except some light swimming, and I have just felt yucky.

I am late to the Foodie Friday party this time, but I did manage to recreate a recipe from our childhood. (Thank you computer for not working…I hope this post from my phone looks ok!)

I will be the first to say I was not a kid who ate super healthy. I didn’t really learn much about nutrition until I was in late high school to early college. Part of me wishes I knew more then, and I could have changed some of the health challenges I have now.

One combo I loved as a kid was peanut butter and chocolate. My mom tried to encourage us to eat oatmeal or cream of wheat but I HATED them plain. Sometimes we would add ice cream, lots of butter or gobs of peanut butter and lots of chocolate chips. Of course it tasted great then, haha, but was def not a very healthy meal. I am very thankful that today I know more about making healthy choices and putting food with good ingredients in my body!

I am linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, and Jess from Hello to Fit for our back in the day themed week!

PB & chocolate chipper oatmeal


  • 1 serving oatmeal, cooked (I make sure mine is truly gluten free)
  • 1 TBS unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 TBS powdered peanut butter
  • 1 small handful of Enjoy Life chocolate chips


  1. Make your choice of oatmeal according to package directions.
  2. Add in milk to give creamy taste and help it cool.
  3. Mix in powered peanut butter.
  4. Sprinkle in chocolate chips. Still well.
  5. Enjoy this childhood breakfast revisited 🙂
