My Husband is a Juice Head and Carrot Cake Oatmeal Recipe

Every afternoon, Nick processes a bag of carrots and downs a pint of fresh juice.

I have juiced many times in the past but have never been much of a fan. I hate wasting all of the nutritious fiber that is separated in the juicing process and I enjoy the act of chewing my food. Also, the high sugar content always gives me a headache!

Despite my distaste for the stuff, my Juice Head husband’s habit did inspire my fantastic new breakfast recipe.

Sweet breakfast lovers be warned, you are going to love this veggi-licious dish!
