The Breakfast Jam Jar

Weekday mornings can be pretty hectic; dragging yourself out of bed, getting ready for work, dogs to feed, kids and traffic- trying to fit in a nutritious breakfast can at times  seem downright impossible!

Enter this little savior: The Breakfast Jam Jar.

A breakfast jam jar takes 5 minutes to prepare and is an easy way to start your day off with an abundance of nutrients, fibre and energy. By preparing the jar the night before the oats will be more easily digested and allow for better absorption. This recipe is my Harmonic Arts inspired version of a jam jar- the majority of these ingredients are available on our website or in store.  You can be as creative and picky as you like with this – use your imagination!

Here  are a few of the many nutrients and benefits packed into this particular breakfast jar:

Magnesium, Fibre,  Manganese, Protein, Omega 3 and 6, Antioxidants, Iodine, Trace minerals and B Vitamins

jars

INGREDIENTS:

3/4 Cup organic whole rolled oats

METHOD:

In the morning amidst the hectic hustle just grab and go!

It’s easy, tastes like a (guilt free) dessert and is incredibly  filling.  Enjoy!

7 Foundations of Winter Happiness

As winter approaches, it is a time when it can really sink in for some of us that we have a long, dark winter ahead. It is the part of the yearly cycle in which dreams are incubated, ideas are created, and shadow work is cultivated.

It’s been given various titles such as Depression, Seasonal Affective Disorder, and even been alluded to levels of madness.
