Rise and Shine!
What is it that wakes me up every morning......?
My beautiful son and husband giggling in bed?
The deafening alarm clock hurling me out of bed to train my anything but eager clients at the gym?
Filtered sunshine sparkling through the windows?
River Valley Waldorf School...one of my favorite sunny windows...
Yes. All of these things. But mostly....
My stomach growling!!!
By 7:00 am, it is certainly time for me to "break" the "fast". All night long my body does strenuous work; repairing and rejuvenating. It surely deserves a feast come morning!
Autumn inspires every bit of me....I am ready for apples and pumpkins and cinnamon and hearty breads...can you tell I am excited? Are you hungry yet? GOOD!
I would love to share with you one of my most favorite Autumn breakfast recipes. It is simple and lovely...and best of all, it will keep you full until lunch!
Autumn Pumpkin Oatmeal
-serving of old fashioned oats
-3 heaping spoonfuls of freshly pureed or canned pumpkin
-brown sugar, honey, or you other favorite sweetener to taste
-dash of cinnamon and nutmeg
-1/2 cup or so of vanilla almond milk
This is easy...combine all ingredients together to taste! Warm and delicious...and babies love it, too!
p.s- have I mentioned how very deeply I appreciate the warm wishes and feelings of friendship I have found in this circle of mama bloggers? You add a sparkle to my days and I am so very thankful for your inspiration and kind words.
