Yes, I am a 'lil late... got caught up in the flurry of Holiday activities! Hope it was HAPPY!
Merry Christmas to all.
You are the gift. Give this gift freely and make the world a better place to be.
You ARE the Gift
As we pull ourselves together for Holiday celebrating 2013, remember that you ARE the gift.
We so often get caught up in the corporate world's version and vision of what a holiday should look like:
1. Credit cards bending to the $$ weight of gift purchases, because, well, that is what we are supposed to do, right?
2. Over stuffed gift giving all to the benefit of the corporate world's bottom line.
3. Over stuffed eating and merry making leaving us feeling washed out after the celebrations are over.
Giving You As The Gift
Take time to do things for others that count; make someone else's life easier, happier, and healthier by giving You as the gift. It is a gift of LOVE.
and may your 2014 be Happy, Healthy, and Whole
in Mind, Body & Soul.
1 cup of milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. dark maple syrup
1-2 tsp. decaffeinated instant coffee (Or use the caffeine and enjoy!)
pinch or two of nutmeg
pinch or two of cinnamon
optional: whipped cream
Place all ingredients, except whipped cream, in a blender and gently blend together.
Pour into a pan and heat slowly and gently. I heat on low for 2 minutes and test the temperature. If not warmed enough, I keep heating and check every 1 minute. Yes, I set the timer. Over heated eggnog gets clumpy!
Pour into your favorite mug, add whipped cream (or not), enjoy!
*I opt for all organic, naturally-raised ingredients to better nourish me, to nourish those I am making my "eggnog love", and to inadvertently nourish the earth through better food and farming choices.
