Ah..nothing like the morning routine

By morning, mind you, I mean any time I wake up! So today my "morning routine" took place at 12:00 pm. I find it funny that no matter what time it is, I still do the same thing when first waking up. I doubt any of you are much different. How many people wake up at noon and want a burger and fries? Not me. I want cereal. Or eggs and bacon. Or this morning, "porridge".

My morning begins with swallowing two NutriFeron vitamins that my boyfriend's mom gave me, then venturing downstairs. I perform my daily hygiene activities, then it's into the kitchen with my kitty (who is not allowed downstairs but Daddy is at work by now). I fill up my 2.2 liter water bottle (a full recommended 8 glasses in one bottle!) and dilute into it 2 tablespoons of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. During this I also down a BodyMint tablet, a vitamin D tablet, and a generic children's vitamin called "Zippy Zoo" (yes I am a vitamin junkie). Some days I'll throw in an Iron tablet for good measure. I'll then begin boiling water on the stove for tea primarily (if I don't eat cereal that morning, I'll use it for oatmeal or something.)

This morning I made a pleasant cup of Rainforest Lemon Myrtle Yerba Green Tea (which tastes like a fresh green strand of lemongrass) and a hot bowl of porridge(my recipe below). I take immense pleasure in the little things, which I'm sure someone's already written a book about.

After all that it's usually time to either go to school, work, or on the best days, sit at home!
