I love it when small changes yield big results. For example, recently I finally decided to get professionally fitted for a pair of running shoes. One hour of my time and a bit more than I usually spend, but huge results. My feet feel better than ever, my knees hurt less, and I can actually run further. Seriously – I get fatigued about 1/2 mile later than I used to. I also recently started keeping my phone in the living room instead of next to me at bedtime. Small change, big results. I feel more relaxed and don’t find my mind racing at night about the emails I saw right before trying to go to bed.
Today’s recipe is another small change with big results. With a few small tweaks to the recipe and an extra 15 minutes in prep time, we take a mundane breakfast parfait to a whole new place. Roasting the fruit is the first small change. It creates a more intense, sweeter, richer flavor. From there we add nuttiness to the oats by quickly toasting them in a skillet. (This works great with any oatmeal recipe!) Make up a batch with any fruit you like, peaches are another favorite, and store leftover fruits and oats for quick midweek breakfasts and snacks.
What are some of your favorite small changes to lead to big results?
