Fall is in the air.
Can you feel the energy of change all around you?
As we leave the warm, outward movement of summer & move to the cool, hibernation of winter, there is an opportunity.
The theory of yin and yang wisely teaches how to harness the power available to us during times of transition. As we switch from one extreme to the other, there is an instability that allows new pathways to form. As we leave the warm, outward movement of summer and move into the cool, hibernation of winter, there is an opportunity.
This is the perfect time to set up new healthy strategies you will love and that will help you feel great and to flourish through the darkness, to resist the onslaught of nasty winter bugs.

Apple Oat Groat Congee
Place everything in the crock. 2 servings.
1/2 cup organic oat groats (be sure to use whole oat groats!)
1 apple peeled and cored (or put this in when you wake up and let warm before serving)
1 tsp. healthy fat (butter, coconut oil or butter, ghee, etc.)
2 1/2 cups water.
Add a dash of cinnamon or just keep it plain and simple. Delicious!
Stir, cover, set to low. Cook for 8-12 hours while you sleep.
Substitute any kind of rice or gluten free grain as needed when gluten free oat groats are not available.
*not using cups and quarts? Simply use 5:1 ratio as the key. 5 times as much water as whole grains.
