Elyssa Eaton's Cozy Pumpkin Spice Oats with Rawnola

With the morning's becoming a little chiller, we had one of our friends create this tasty treat to share with you. Elyssa Eaton is an eco-conscious, healthy eating advocate who shares her recipes and thoughts with her followers on her instagram (@elyssaeatonfresh).

Eaton started her healthy eating habits at a young age, but became immersed in a plant based diet in college after reading "Skinny Bitch" by Rory Freedman & Kim Barnouin. She decided to share her experience with her diet, and her personal recipes with her community to educate and discuss the benefits of plant-based eating and eco-friendly living with atouch of animal rights, fair-trade goods, and other sustainable practices.
