the eve of new year's eve

and i am just sitting in my house, alone, too tired to really do anything.
i am exhausted for no reason, i have just been sitting around reading, and sleeping. but that's what vacation is all about right?....right? ah well.
so when i am being lazy, i like to be lazy in every aspect of my life:
including chewing, so to help my ventures against chewing and further my lazy aspirations (is that an oxymoron is it?) i made brown rice porridge
mmmm. the best part of this dish was that it was so easy to make! 
Brown Rice porridge
  • 1 cup pre made brown rice
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp sweetener
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
optional add ins
  • 1tbsp chopped nuts, i used pecans
  • 1/2 chopped apple

in a pot, place rice almond milk, syrup, sweetener and cinnamon, alond with the chia seeds and simmer on a low setting until the rice absorbs most of the milk, and you're done!

it was a really nice twist to brown rice, i was sort of getting sick of oatmeal, so this really expanded my breakfast horizons.
so as the new year approaches, does anyone have any new years resolutions? i have a few but they are the basic ones like stay in shape, read more, get more work done, do better in school, eat well, and just generally be happy.

what are your new years resolution?
