I came across this tahini/date/pear smoothie (thanks Janella Purcell).
Whilst I don’t feel the need for ’emotional eating’, I figured this would be a nutritious and filling snack AND would give me an opportunity to be mindful, taking the time to make myself something I wouldn’t normally, along with the cinnamon sprinkle on top! I didn’t even multitask.
By slowing down to make this smoothie, knowing it wouldn’t take THAT long out of my day, I’ve given myself a little bit back. Cinnamon and a warm drink didn’t go astray either.
I’d love to know the small things you do for yourself as a parent, even when you don’t have the time!
