FILL_UP_HEART

I was reflecting JUST NOW on HOW FULL my heart feels this morning…!

Ive literally had the most SPECTACULAR time since opening my eyes, without alarm, in the early hours of dusk….. 

I’ve had time to wash and dry my hair (LUXURY! Women, HOW GOOD do you feel when you KNOW your hair looks nice?!?!); watched my sexy, spunky man show love to my kitty kats which he has so easily “adopted” into our life (THANK YOU); walked in the brisk, cool, fresh, DELICIOUS morning air to Hastings Street for a DIVINE coffee- make that TWO (YUM!); connected with my mama via text and photo (HOW GOOD is technology?!); Received my Picture Postie – Photo Printing App prints in the mail and then made LOVE BUNDLES for the Mummies in our life, ready to post for their receiving delight (YAY!!! Love sending things in old-school mail! You!?!?) &…. just enjoyed such gorgeous thoughts, hopes, dreams and more in general…..!

It occurred to me that my HEART FEELS SO FULL…  And so content…

Almost to bursting capacity…

And in that moment I also realised that when we FILL UP OUR HEARTS, we are WAY less inclined to OVERFILL our bellies…   CLICK TO TWEET

Yes…. Living through the heart, from the heart, and in 24/7 connection TO the heart is the most REWARDING, FULFILLING and BEAUTIFUL way to live…

It’s also the HEALTHIEST 

Making the transition from HEAD to HEART living was one of the most challenging, and simultaneously most INCREDIBLE, experiences EVER of my life!

I can never, ever thank all my teachers, mentors, guru’s, examples, idols, or hero’s enough….

I thank the Universe so much that there are people out there who live fearlessly and courageously from their heart in every moment, as without their example and presence, I would never have made the journey back to MY heart… back to MY soul… back to my ESSENCE….

And I KNOW I would never, ever be feeling as AMAZING as I am right now!

Today gorgeous ones, I urge you….

FILL UP YOUR HEART….   

If you feel empty, alone, hungry, tired, bored, hopeless, lost, forlorn, BLAH…. take the retreat back into the space right within your chest… Feel that ever-beating, ever-constant, ever-reliable presence…

IN THERE is truth…. IN THERE is inspiration…. IN THERE is love…

Beautiful, endless, gorgeous love…

You have a perpetual amount of love to access and GIVE….

There is NEVER any end, there is never any scarcity….

What fills up your heart?? What makes you feel LOVE??

Do that TODAY…. Do that NOW :)

Please, not just for your OWN health and happiness, but for that of humanity….

All my love,

Terrifically Toasty Oats

Written by bridget on . Posted in Ravishing Recipes

TTOats

“These are the yummest (yes I know! I’m quoting though!) oats I’ve ever had!”

The ever so happy statement bursting from my mans mouth as he chowed down my ultra healthy version of traditional oats!

Here’s the deal:
1xOats
1xMilk of choice
1xWater
Chopped pear – added at beginning of cooking
1 chopped banana – also added at beginning of cooking
Local Bush Honey – added once cooked
Mix of pumpkin, sunflower seeds, dried fruit and nuts- added at end of cooking

Note : Whatever quantity of oats you feel is right per serve, match for the milk& water (eg 1/3 cup oats would have 1/3 cup water AND 1/3 cup milk added)

To a pot add the pear, banana, oats, milk and water.

Bring to the boil, stirring.

Reduce heat to simmer until thick and creamy and desired consistency.

Pour into a bowl. Add your preferred amount and type of honey, dried fruit, nuts and seeds, plus extra milk if desired.

DIG IN! :)

This delicious winter warmer is LOADED with goodness, energy & is guaranteed to keep you motoring all morning long! Oats are a fantastic source of a type of fibre known as beta-glucan, which is proven to reduce cholesterol levels and aid in the management of blood sugar levels. Therefore if you have diabetes or heart disease, or are trying to prevent these, oats are your friend! :)

They are also rich in anti-oxidant compounds unique to oats known as avenanthramides. SO they are ultra anti-ageing and heart-protecting! :)

Local honey’s are known for their wonderful anti-bacterial qualities, as well as helping with any kind of environmental allergic/hay fever reactions.

Making the oats on milk adds protein, as well as creamy goodness, and you can choose whatever type of milk you fancy!

The dried fruit, nuts and seeds add even more anti-oxidant protection, fibre, protein, essential fats and a delicious nutty flavour and texture.

Banana and pear add natural sweetness, slow release energy as well as more creaminess.

I hope you enjoy this little variation of a good old favourite and do be sure to send in your feedback! :)

Some cinnamon would also be a delicious and nutritious addition! :)

Enjoy xo
