24 Jan A seedy breakfast: sweet and spicy oats
Not so very long ago, the phrase “seedy breakfast” would have meant something altogether different. Now it means that my breakfast is full of seeds. And turmeric, and cinnamon, and freshly grated nutmeg… it’s pretty much the best breakfast ever.
Inspired by Leo Babauta and this blog post, I have given up making New Years Resolutions and focused on changing habits this year. As the Kundalini guru,Yogi Bhajan, taught: your habits define you. I’ve always believed in setting intentions for the year ahead, yet this may just be a more permanent way of doing it. My January has been all about health. I had an experience during the Christmas period (which I don’t feel ready to go into here just yet) that made me realise the importance of it. Good health is a blessing that we often take for granted. So this month I have avoided processed sugar, alcohol and… meat. In fact, I’ve gone Vegetarian. Or Pescaterian to be precise. I’m not sure how long it will last, because I do love the taste of meat, but at the moment my body feels purer and happier without it. I’m filling up on goodness instead and turmeric is the one of the healthiest things we can put into our bodies.
