Clean Eating

As equestrians, we know how important it is to stay fit. The stronger we are, the better we ride. We not only need to be strong on the outside, but on the inside as well. Eating right can help build muscle, give you lasting energy and keep your brain active and focused.

Eating well does not mean losing flavor! Eating healthy can taste good!

This recipe was designed for the busy horse person in mind. These make a great weekday breakfast on the run. Once they are cooked, allow them too cool completely then place in a Ziploc bag. During the week, take one or two out, wrap in a paper towel and heat in the microwave for about 20 seconds then spread peanut or almond butter on top and off you go!
