Its been quite some time eh? I hope you’ve all (in the Northern hemisphere at least) been enjoying the beautiful Summer thats been unfurling around us. Me, i’ve been experiencing some major life changes and have thus been turning my gaze inwards.
A lots changed, as life has a tendency to do and i’ve been using this time to really focus on what lessons can be learned. Getting to know myself more and trying to step up and face life with authenticity.
Theres been many challenging times and a lot of chaos, but from this i think a wonderful understanding has occurred. One that i’ve read many times before but never felt within myself. It first struck me in a little yoga practise i was learning- the notion of “leaning into” a tricky position. Of flowing with the stream instead of constantly trying to battle against it. Of simplifying everything and approaching each day, each task, each worry, one step at a time.
So here i am, still rocking my broken computer and still tinkling away at this blog. For the time being, the new website is on the shelf but i finally managed to sort out Green and Leithy and make it once again feel like something i can be proud of.
Right, enough of the jibber jabber, onto the recipe.
These oats are simplicity in themselves. So incredibly easy to prepare and, i think, really delicious. Soaking oats makes them easier to digest but mostly i make these so i have a quick and filling breakfast all ready to rock in the morning. The Sultanas exude their sweet goodness meaning that you don’t need to add any additional sweeteners (though of course you totally can if your sweet tooth is your largest). I throw in a tablespoon of flax and chia seeds for the added awesome fats but they are entirely optional.
(Serves 1, Vg, Gf, R)
- 1/4 cup Oats
- 1/4 cup Sultanas
- 1/4 cup Water
- 1 tbsp Flax Seeds (optional)
- 1 tbsp Chia Seeds (optional)
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl, (or a jar if you want breakfast on the go)
- Stir well and pop in the fridge overnight, stirring once later on to prevent clumps.
So here i am. Offering you a simple and satisfying breakfast. If you guys have any winning, simple dishes to share, please shout me up in the comments.
Much love xxx
