Apple and Coconut Porridge

Things have been a little crazy around here. The last 3 weeks have gone in a blur and I feel like I've been functioning on autopilot. Currently, I have an essay and an exam looming over my head. I just can't wait for some normality. Just three more days to go and I will have a very very long sleep in and read the pile of comics I have been saving up.

When you are so busy with family, work and relationships it can be hard to remember to take time for yourself. In the midst of all this running around, I decided to make an effort towards my breakfast. It was some chill time by myself in the morning to rest before the day started. And on the weekend it allowed some time to sit with L before we went off in our different directions.

After all that rambling (can you tell I am procrastinating), I have a recipe to share with you. This is for apple and coconut porridge. I think it's pretty yummy. I made it on the weekends to share with L so the recipe is for two. It goes quite nicely with a cup of tea :)


Peel, core and chop the apples into 1cm square pieces.
Throw all the ingredients in a saucepan and place over a medium heat.
Stir until all the liquid is soaked into the oats.
Serve with a little extra milk and some extra coconut.

1 cup oats
1 1/2 cups milk (or water)
pinch salt
2 apples
1/2 cup coconut flakes

What do you do for self care when you are short on time?
