Rice and Shine

Spring Break: Day 3. 

Arrowhead Mills are punny, aren't they? But really, their "Rice and Shine" porridge has become a favorite. I cook it with a tsp of chia seeds, as well as with extra water and with 1/2 cup of almond milk, and let it simmer on the stove in the morning as I wait for my kettle to boil water for tea. I top my rice porridge with a drizzle of honey or pure maple syrup and lots of frozen berries. Oh, and green tea is always a must first thing in the morning in the Little Byt. 

I promise I'm getting out, but these past few days I've also wanted to capture the simple aspects of apartment life in the Little Byt. After some deep cleaning over the weekend, it's a restful place in between grocery trips, the library, work and traipsing around the city for places to do homework.

Today I successfully completed lesson 2 and 3 (out of 8) for my online Romans class. Three down, five to go! I also have three background analysis papers, a 6-7 page paper, and an exegetical paper of sorts to write as well. I'll be needing the energy and comfort of this rice pudding in the morning to help the day start off well so I can focus in on coursework!

What is your morning go-to for breakfast?


  1. Mm pure maple syrup :) I'm glad your break had been restful
