w/ Fresh Figs, Hemp and Cacao Nibs
Let’s face it, no matter how much sleep we get, we’re never quite ready to get out of bed… especially on a weekday. One thing that always serves as incentive to get up and at ‘em? A good breakfast. If said breakfast is equal parts nutritious and delicious, we’re all over it. We’re all about custom bowls of warm oatmeal loaded with yummy toppings for this exact reason. This Power Oatmeal Bowl with fresh figs, hemp and cacao nibs satisfies all of our morning cravings and keeps us going until lunch. That’s reason enough to keep us away from the snooze button!
