There’s nothing like the feeling of your body absorbing nutrients from a healthy, well-balanced meal.
Last night I prepared some cacao-golden milk before bed (coconut milk, coconut oil, turmeric, black pepper, cacao powder, honey, cinnamon).
There was some leftover and rather than be greedy (which I am far too often guilty of), I poured it over some gluten-free oats and chia seeds. Then mixed in some nuts I experimented in a dehydrator I’ve been kindly loaned (almond, walnut, hazelnut, pumpkin seed, sunflower seed, leftover pulp from freshly juiced fruit and veg, cinnamon, honey). Tossed in cacao nibs and a couple of dates, then heated this morning with coconut oil, 1/2 a banana and handful of blueberries.
Didn’t take a photo in time and I’m sure it looks gross to most, but my oh my was it absolutely delicious.
I did an intense Forrest yoga workshop last night, 2 sweaty hardcore hours in 30°c heat and only followed by a bit of fruit and coconut water to refuel (along with the cacao-golden milk).
So this morning my body is welcoming every single beautifully nourishing ingredient.
I’m so grateful for all the amazing things in my life – my health, the abundance of food provided naturally by pachamama, the gorgeous soul tribe who help me along my healing/growing path.
I’m truly blessed.
So yeah – random breakfast, full of goodness to set me up for a great day. In the words of that wonderful native American Indian song – I can feel it in my body, I can feel it in my soul! Heyaho!
Happy Sunday y’all!
This random porridge is a brilliant way to start a new day!
This morning I was nourished by this delicious, random porridge concoction. I’m running low on a lot of food items so I threw in bits of what I had:
100% peanut butter (crunchy)
Hob on medium, heat everything together in a saucepan for 4-5 mins, or until excess liquid has gone. Mush raspberries a little with a spoon, to mix with the oats.
The peanut butter forms a slightly thick consistency on the spoon, but it’s still all good.
My energy levels were boosted all day and I got some extra protein from the peanuts. Plus it’s dairy free! Simple, tasty and nutritious. A class breakfast.
Here’s one idea for a quick, healthy breakfast (or snack).
Bite-sized wheat shreds cereals (branded or non works either way), oat milk, mixed nuts and pure honey.
These particular cereals work nicely with honey as they can be quite bland without sugar (which I’ve cut substantially). Just try your best to get raw, organic. Nom!
Happy Tuesday 🙂
Good morning, World.
I greet you like a Facebook status and with a tissue to withhold the fresh snot streaming from my nostrils as summer and it’s main signifier, hayfever, draw closer.
Yesterday I awoke to a beautiful blue sky, bombarded with streaks of chemtrails imposing themselves on to the neighbourhood as if they own the world. But that’s irrelevant this morning. As I hold faith the perpetrators will face their ‘punishment’ (for want of a better word) some day. They will certainly reap what they sow, let’s say.
So yesterday that morning visual set me up for a whole day of the ‘there are so many things against us’ attitude/ viewpoint.
Today however I am going to roll out of bed, prepare myself a fruit smoothie and stand in the back garden admiring the beautiful sky, whatever it’s colour and chemical state today.
Whatever is, is, and whatever will be, will very much be. For today at least, I’m just going to enjoy the ride.
