mOMent: Who do you blame first when things don’t go according to plan? Instead of racing toward the blame game, why not suspend the belief that there is actually anyone to blame? How would that change things for you?

Here’s a recipe that is guaranteed to change the pace of you morning.  If the caffeine from the coffee doesn’t get you going than the cayenne will.  Be very aware of how much cayenne you use in this recipe, I have learned from experience to go very gently…you can always add more.

Ingredients:

Oatmeal
1/2 C dry old-fashioned oats
1 C coffee
1 cinnamon stick

Mexican spicy chocolate sauce
1 teensy pinch of cayenne
1/4 t cinnamon
1 T grapeseed oil
2 T creamer (I used coconut creamer)
1 T agave syrup
1 pinch of salt
1 wedge mexican chocolate, chopped

Directions:

Make oatmeal as you normally would, except instead of water, use coffee.  Also, add a cinnamon stick in with the oats while they are cooking.  You will end up with a dark brown oatmeal.

For the spicy chocolate sauce combine the grapeseed oil, agave, cinnamon and cayenne in a saucepan until warm. Add creamer and chopped Mexican chocolate.  Heat until chocolate has melted and everything is mixed well.  Feel free to taste test.

Add mixture to oatmeal and get engines ready!  The flavors will surely get you going…

Om,
Renata

mOMent: We all have vices in life, and not all of them are bad.  However, sometimes it can be a good idea to let old habits die hard in order to create room for newer, better ones.  Which vices are you ready to let go?

coffee simple syrup

Ingredients:

1 C sugar
1 C coffee

Directions: Add ingredients to a pot and heat over medium heat. Simmer mixture until all of the sugar dissolves and the liquid becomes a little bit thicker like a syrup. The quantity should be about half of what you started with. Remove from heat and let sit until cool. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Om,
Renata
