We all need time to refuel in order to flourish.   

It’s easy to lose sight of personal time when we put everyone before ourselves.  While carving out a few hours for personal time may be difficult, there are small ways we can fuel with love each day. 

“Self-care isn’t selfish. We can’t serve from an empty vessel.” – Eleanor Brownn

Fueling with love is anything that inspires, encourages, revitalizes and nourishes. It refuels your tank and allows you to be more present in daily life. Whether it’s scheduling lunch with friends or reminding yourself that you are loved, fueling with love is about being good to you.

One simple way to refuel on a daily basis is by making food choices that fill your tank with energy. 

What we eat determines our energy levels, ability to focus and how our skin appears. Eating well can even change mood. 

When you’re good to your body, it’s good to you. Fueling right can give you that extra boost of energy in the afternoon and help you sleep deeper at night. Taking care of yourself is just as important as: work, family, the kiddos and all your other responsibilities.  

Grandma’s October Herbal of The Month, Oatmeal Milk & Honey, inspired us to share simple oatmeal recipes that will help you fuel with love this fall.  

We chose one quick healthy recipe and one recipe to indulge our sweet tooth. 

Blueberry Oatmeal:

We recommend using steel cut oats or Quaker Oats 100% Natural Whole Grain with this recipe. This blueberry topper has all the warm and delicious flavors you could ever need on a fall morning.  

Serves: 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1½ tbsp water 
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ tsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup dried oats, cooked

Directions:

  • Combine blueberries, water, honey, vanilla extract, and salt in small saucepan. Stir to combine.
  • Sprinkle cornstarch in mixture and stir.
  • Bring to a boil, then let simmer until thickened.
  • Serve on top of oatmeal.

 

Slow Cooker Coconut Spiced Oatmeal

This is a great over night recipe. Prep ingredients before bed, throw everything into the slow cooker, and wake up to a delicious sweet treat.

Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 2 cups steel cut oatmeal 
  • 8 cups water
  • 1, 15 ounce can cream of coconut
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients in the slow cooker and stir.
  • Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
  • Serve immediately or freeze in individual servings.

 

While fueling with love could mean eating well, it could also be a night without TV, or a week without social media. It can also be your skincare routine. Don’t use products that strip your skin of its natural oils. Nourish, replenish and fuel your skin with love.
