We're moving into the season of constant food...and most of it isn't good for you! As winter falls upon us (well, at least it is here in Calgary!) and Christmas draws ever closer (egg nog lattes are in Starbucks now! Along with the red Christmas cups!) and our neighbours to the south are approaching their Thanksgiving holiday also, it is hard to stay on track with your eating every day. Rather than battling all the temptations that come your way, try one thing in these coming months: Eat a healthy breakfast.

If you've been a part of the blogosphere for a while - either as a blogger or as a reader - you've no doubt heard of oats in a jar. If you haven't, you'll be so glad you read this post, because now you have! Oats in a jar basically refers to a neat trick to make yourself the yummiest oats ever. When your nut butter is nearly out (i.e. you have to scrape the sides of the jar to get any goodness), just pour your breakfast oats into the jar and eat straight from there. The heat from the oats will melt the remaining butter and mix it in with your oatmeal and - trust me - it tastes AMAZING.
