Blueberry Oats Recipe

This is so easy I don’t even know if it qualifies as a ‘recipe’ and this is coming from me, the smoothie recipe queen!

But I wanted to share it here anyway because I have started making big batches of steel cut oatmeal to eat for breakfast and I really like it! This recipe checks off all of the most important things I look at when planning my meals:

  • Fast – Yup! It takes about 30 minutes to make 4 servings. I cook those while I’m in the kitchen and then portion them into tupperware so my breakfast is ready to go in about 30 seconds.
  • Easy – Water + Steel Cut Oats + Heat = Cooked Oats. Stir in fruit and flavorings. Dunzo! (bet ya haven’t heard that since 2003)
  • Healthy – It’s not hard to make a healthy breakfast but if you are not a morning person, it can be tempting to grab something in a box or package before you get going. This is much healthier than eating a bowl of sugary cereal or a bag of mini muffins.
  • Cheap – Ok so technically instant oats AND rolled oats are cheaper than steel cut – but I just love the texture of the steel cuts and it’s still cheap enough for me. I’m budget conscious – NOT cheap-o!

How Do I Start A Blog?

I get a lot of questions about smoothies – but there’s one question I get even more: How do I start a blog?

And I know it can get overwhelming when you’re just starting out. It’s not that hard, though. I’m going to walk you through the steps to get started. You’ll have a blog in about 10 minutes. :-)

Step 1: Register for an account with Dreamhost. I’ve been a customer since 2010 and I can honestly say they really are a dream! I love their 1-click installs, I love keeping everything for my website all together, they have fast customer service, and they make it really easy to go into your back end if you ever need to. Their website is very easy to navigate, too. I’ve used other hosts that were a tiny bit cheaper, but they were harder to navigate and my site would crash. All in all, I’ve been VERY happy with Dreamhost for the past 4 years!

FIRST STEP – before you do anything else:

Click HERE & click ‘Get Started’ to set up your DREAMHOST ACCOUNT 

Step 2: Register a domain name. This can be anything. If you can’t think of a name for your blog just register your name.

  • From the Dreamhost Dashboard click ‘Domains’
  • Click ‘Registrations’ and enter the url (yoursitexyz.com) you want your blog to be in the long skinny box.
  • Click ‘Check Availability’
  • If your desired url is already taken it will show you some similar options, but if it’s available then you will see ‘Congratulations! Yoursitexyz.com is available! Let’s register it.’
  • Fill out the information and click ‘Submit’ or ‘Register’ at the bottom.

Congrats! You now are the proud owner of a shiny new domain name!

Step 3: Add hosting. This just means that you will have a blog running on your domain name. To add hosting to your registered domain name follow these directions:

  • From your Dreamhost Dashboard click on ‘Domains’ on the left hand side
  • Click on ‘Manage Domains’
  • Click on the ‘+Add’ button under the Web Hosting column
  • Choose whether you want your site to have a www in front of it or not
  • Scroll down and click ‘Fully Host this Domain’

Step 4: Use Dreamhosts 1-Click Installs to install WordPress to your website

  • From your Dreamhost dashboard click on ‘Goodies’
  • Click on ‘One-Click Installs’
  • Click the yellow ‘WordPress’
  • Choose your domain from the drop down box.
  • Click ‘Install it for me now?’

That’s it! You’ll get an email in a few minutes with a link to your website. Then you can log in and get started!

That’s it! You have a blog! Congratulations!

*In addition to being a long-term Dreamhost customer I am also an affiliate. All that means is that you get the exact same pricing but Dreamhost pays me a small percentage for any customers that come through my link. If that makes you uncomfortable then you are free to google search Dreamhost instead of using my link.
