Mornings

Every Morning, right when I open my eyes before I even get out of bed, I like to start my day with adjusting my mind to become acquainted with the idea that I have everything in me to have an AMAZING day. I may not be able to control every single detail and aspect of my day, but what I know I can do is that I can adjust my thoughts because they are in my brain. Only I have the ability to control the kind of attitude and state of mind to that is going to be setting the tone of not only my day, but also my life. Mornings are also a time for peace and quiet and taking time out for yourself. I really feel bad for the people that walk up 20 minutes before they need to be somewhere and are rushed into getting out the door ASAP. I feel it is necessary to take time out for yourself in the morning to make11079134_10205510408092102_1471045113_n some breakfast and a cup of joe 😉

Leaving me warm, satisfied, and nourished, I call this bowl my wake-me-up bear hug 😉 While devouring that, I listen to my favorite french radio channel on my mac,while checking up on the news and what is going on in the world. Then its time to get dressed and I’m out the door to start a day at PSU full of classes.

Raspberry-Honey Oatmeal

Yields:1

Ingredients

1/2 cup old fashioned oats

3/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk *

Tablespoon of natural almond butter*

Tablespoon of 100% pure clover honey

Cinnamon

1/2 cup fresh raspberries

*any kind of milk of your choice is ok  (cows milk, coconut, cashew, rice)

*Feel free to substitute with your favorite nut butter of choice-just make sure its natural

Directions:

Place oats and almond milk on high heat covered in a pan. Wait about 1 minute until it starts boiling to uncover and gradually keep stirring so that the oats can absorb the liquid. Take the heat down to medium high and keep covered for another 1 minute. Uncover and add a dash of cinnamon to your taste and stir rapidly to make sure it is well combined. Turn off the heat and transfer to your favorite bowl and while it is still hot, add a tablespoon of the almond butter so that the heat of the oats can slightly melt it. Top with your raspberries and drizzle your honey. Serve and enjoy.
