I havenít posted a recipe in a long time but I was thinking about the link between what we eat and the energy that is available to us daily.
Much of the work I do as a coach, counselor, speaker, is about working with my clients to harness their energy in the most efficient way possible to get them where they want to go.
I help them get all their ducks in a row. It means making sure everything is in alignment to really propel them in the right direction.
I see life in a holistic way, meaning I believe everything in our life is connected, body, mind, spirit. Every aspect of our lives has the potential to either move us toward where we want to go or slow us down. Part of my work with my clients is to observe and identify what may be slowing them down and to work with them on that.
Food is fuel so here is a recipe I enjoy for breakfast. I have been eating a vegetarian diet for about seven years so I am always on the lookout for adding more protein to my diet. I also pay attention to food that is more alkaline based as acidic food tends to raise the level of inflammation in our body which can contribute to illness.
Here are some oatmeal ideas. Add as much as feels good to you and enjoy!!
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 cups water
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 tablespoon ground flax seed
1 tablespoon coconut oil
Fresh or frozen berries
Tablespoon of chopped walnuts, walnuts, almonds...
1 or 2 tablespoons of gogi berries
Tablespoon or two of 0% plain yogurt, I like Fage
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Microwave the oats, water and berries (if frozen) for two minutes. You may need an extra minute if using frozen berries. Add the coconut oil and let sit for a few minutes, then add toppings.
