I had a great time presenting it on our local Fox 4 News – WDAF.  However, a Greek restaurant chef was on before me, so imagine souvlaki, gyros, pita, kataifi, baklava and piles of delicate pastries all around the studio.  Then I came on and made Creamy Carrot Cake Oatmeal, but I think the recipe held its own.  I mean, who doesn’t like oatmeal?  Of course, baklava for breakfast sounds pretty….

Nevermind, we are Intentionally Eating and that means oatmeal not baklava for breakfast if you want to reach your health goals.  No worries about taste, this isn’t just oatmeal – it’s oatmeal on steroids!  It tastes like carrot cake – seriously.

Tip: Don’t like carrot cake (really?), then leave out the carrot and increase the zucchini to 3/4 cup.  Voila! Zippy Zucchini Bread Oatmeal!  Now, let’s get to it!
