Gettin’ Figgy With It + Pumpkin and Spice?!

My Mom told me this photo of my breakfast was “blog-worthy.”



Egg white oats with cinnamon, skim milk, a fig, cinnamon vanilla granola, and strawberries. So delicious!

Have you ever tried egg white oats? They’re a super easy way to sneak some additional protein into your morning oatmeal. The egg whites also add tons of volume so you feel like you’re eating more. Love it!

Pro Tip – If you’re making them in the microwave, I recommend stirring vigorously after 30 second intervals, or else you might just end up with a big gloppy mess. I learned that the hard way.

By the way…. I found out something excellent today….


Oh my gosh! I love Siggi’s, and I’m so excited to try this flavor for fall! Granted, it is only July 29th, people! But this will definitely give me something to look forward to when September rolls around.

When I used to work at Dunkin’ Donuts, we would get our beloved Pumpkin Spice coffee flavor syrup in, like, mid-August! I would always stick it to the man and refuse to indulge in it until it was officially fall. I felt like if you started enjoying pumpkin flavored things too early, they wouldn’t be special anymore! What do you think? 🙂

Questions for You —

  • Have you ever tried egg white oats? If so, how do you make them?
  • What’s your favorite pumpkin-flavored fall indulgence? (Can’t believe I’m even asking that already!)
  • When is an appropriate time to start enjoying pumpkin-flavored things?
