I was delightfully surprised this morning when I saw these samples at the gym. I wouldn’t normally purchase craisins but I thought, what the heck?! And hey…it was pretty yummy too!

Ingredients:

1 C cooked oatmeal
1 100 calorie bag of blueberry craisins
1 t agave syrup (or more to taste)

Directions: Mix it all together and have a wonderful breakfast.

Om,

Renata

gran gala blueberry

This was off the cuff this morning, but well worth it…and a little orange liqueur in the morning ain’t so bad either 🙂

Trader Joe’s Unsweetened Blueberries…yum!

Heat blueberries with Gran Gala or Gran Marnier

Enjoy your om!

Ingredients:

1 C cooked oatmeal
1/4 or more cups of gran gala soaked blueberries

Directions: Take some unsweetened blueberries and heat them in a saucepan with enough gran gala to cover the berries.  Heat until the blueberries are plump.  Mix it up and enjoy!

Om,

Renata

mOMent:  Being perfect is an oxymoron.  We are already perfect, it’s just a matter of remembering… Who is a model of perfection in your life?  Who do you look up to?  What qualities do they have that you also have?

mOMent:  “On the tip of my tongue” is a common saying for when one would like to express something but is unable to come up with the words for it on demand.  Does this happen to you?  And if it does, what is your solution?  I find that relaxing and releasing the need to say anything helps tremendously.  Sometimes it is just my body telling me to slow things down…and perhaps whatever I “need” to say doesn’t actually need to be said.

mOMent:  Today, take a moment to feel the breeze when you are outside today.  Feel it touch your skin, the pressure it has, the way it moves the tiny hairs on your arms.  What is the temperature, is it refreshing? Is it relaxing? Is it something you enjoy?
