I’m not really an oatmeal girl but my body was craving it today. Add in some slivered almonds, unsweetened shaved coconut, fresh blackberries and blueberries, a drop of lemon essential oil and voila! Yumminess in a bowl!
I used to obsess about eating certain foods especially grains when I changed my way of eating to a more paleo style. However, in my process of listening to myself and my intuition, I have come to realize that my relationship with food shouldn’t be so stressful and really shouldn’t be punishing or shaming. I learned that it really is okay to eat what my body is craving. Because I eat so clean, I rarely crave anything “bad” like sugar or super carby foods.
But, today my belly said oatmeal and berries. And that is exactly what it got. And it is okay.
No Shame Oatmeal:
- Steel cut oats cooked as directed
- 1/4 cup unsweetened shaved coconut
- 1/4 slivered almonds
- Handful of berries
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- Drop of lemon essential oil
