Don't Focus on the Goal...

If you've followed this blog you know that I've struggled for many years with improving my health. I've finally reached a point where I've managed to maintain a small amount of success. Now it's time to take the next step, but I believe it requires a new way of thinking.

Instead of trying to get healthy, why not shift focus toward learning how to build healthy habits instead. Follow me as I try to teach myself how to Engineer healthy habits that will allow me to take my health to the next level. Let's see where this experiment goes!

Simple Oatmeal and Blueberries

I'm starting with this recipe because it is really simple and an awesome way to start your day:

1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
5/8 cup water
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 tsp honey
1/8 cup 1% milk

Combine the water and frozen blueberries in a small pot.  Bring to a boil, then add the oatmeal and stir for 1 minute.  remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes.  Put in a bowl and then drizzle on the honey.  Add milk (to thin it if you want) and enjoy.

What I find amazing about this breakfast is that it is such a small amount of food, but it will keep you full for a long time.  Even if you are not an oatmeal fan I recomend trying this as the honey and blueberries make it nice and sweet.  I have this most mornings with a cup of coffee (about 100 calories).  It's a great way to get going and only takes about 10 minutes to make
