It's meant to be summer here - *meant* to be... It's currently cold and rainy. I've been spending my Sunday morning editing the last photos that need to be done for the 8 Week Transformation Challenge eBook. We've already had over 150 people sign up for it, I am so excited! (By the way, if you sent through a request to be a part of the challenge I have sent out your thankyou/information emails, if you haven't received it yet I suggest you check your junk or spam inboxes! Let me know here if you still haven't got them!) Anyway, this morning has been busy and quiet and Beau won't wake up so I decided to make this for breakfast for myself. Hands down my new favourite breakfast for training days, it's high in carbohydrates and good fats to help fuel your workout.

Recipe: Cinnamon Bun Oats

Anyone who knows me really well knows that I am absolutely obsessed with cinnamon buns (when I first started eating healthy I actually had dreams about them because I wasn't letting myself eat them). For a while I've been trying to come up with something that tastes like cinnamon buns but isn't completely terrible for you and I think I've finally got it!
