Thanking teachers with wholesome indulgence

Does your school host a breakfast or lunch to show appreciation for the teachers and other staff? My kids’ school PTA does this once a month, and it is a big hit.

Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal from my oven this morning! Had to sample to make sure it was suitable- oh yeah!

A balance of indulgence and healthfulness is appreciated by these angels in our children’s lives. Fresh fruits and juices and tea packets, egg casseroles full of veggies, whole grain breads and cereals, yogurt, and nuts sprinkled wherever they work… you get the idea!

Here is a season-perfect Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal I whipped up for today’s breakfast for our teachers, packed with whole grains, fiber, healthy fats, protein, beta carotene, vitamin C, and potassium. I cut the brown sugar by one-third and added in walnuts to kick up the omega-3 fats for heart health and brain power!

Thank you teachers, everywhere!
