Switching It Up

Lately, I have been having a beautiful bowl of homemade (non-pepper-flavored) yogurt, berries, and almonds for breakfast each morning. As the weather gets warmer, this is one of those breakfasts that you can get addicted to!

Except when you're sick with a whateveryouwanttocallit and you've got some serious nasal drippage going on. The last thing you want to do is eat something that is going to be phlegm-producing. But when you're in love with yogurt and berries as much as I am, you can't switch to any old breakfast stand-by. It's got to be good! This is where this pretty little dish came into play. 

You could top this baked oatmeal with yogurt if you'd like....or peanut butter....or more berries. Toppings are endless!
