I've been in a breakfast rut for at least the past couple of months

A quick something on the run.  Forgotten, and not always enjoyed.

It seems that's how my days have become.  Lately, it snuck up on me.  I woke up at the end of March and asked myself, how are you spending your minutes?  Are you being ruled by a to-do list?  Continuously stressed out?  Is there anything on there that really matters to yourself and those you love?

Right

So the month of April I'm devoting to the slow-down.  I'll say no to more things than I say yes to.  I'll put people I love at the top of my list.  My days will be more purposed.  My work more meaningful.

The morning ritual seemed like as good a place as any to start.  I'd missed sitting down with something good for me — the small act of taking care of myself before heading off into the world.

So this morning I got up and made something creamy.  Which I absolutely love.  A stick to your ribs kind of breakfast.  Toasted some pecans for that special touch, blueberries are always good.

And you know what?  It was great!

Lots of different things you can do with a good bowl of porridge.  Different fruit, nuts (or not) a little bit of maple syrup on the top, or maybe some honey or maple powder to sprinkle on?

I wish you the happiest of Wednesdays

Enjoy!

ps:  I think we could all get used to this slow down around here.  Thank you, girlfriend.  You were showing me the way the whole time.  I love you extra for that
