Divide the mixed oatmeal into two bowls or glasses. Top each with ½ cup of chopped fruit and a tablespoon of pumpkin seeds.
Drizzle on some additional honey and a pinch of cardamom. Stick in a spoon and serve!GINGER FREEZING TIP: Freezing your ginger is a great way to help is last longer! Prepare your ginger by washing it thoroughly and patting it dry before placing it in your freezer. I keep mine in a glass jar or just loose on the freezer door. Just take it out when you need it. Frozen ginger is super easy to grate on a microplane – skin on (high in fiber and totally edible), so just shave away. If you need larger pieces and would like it peeled, allow the ginger to thaw slightly. The skin can then be rubbed right off with your fingers and cut as desired.
