Lately I have been having a bit of a focus problem. It basically goes like this. Sit at my computer, make a to-do-list for the day, ignore said to-do-list and spend an hour (and a half) catching up on my favorite blogs. Break for breakfast and coffee. Sit back at my computer determined to refocus. Spend an exorbitant amount of time in my inbox with zero efficiency. Break for a mid-morning snack and more coffee. Sit back down and maybe crank out 30 minutes of solid work before distraction returns. You get the idea. I could go on like this for another five paragraphs but I will save you the time, and distraction. Moral of the story is that I need to get my focus “mojo” back.
Cue the irony. So instead just trying to focus and work on Friday, I spent more time than I care to admit, googling tips for focusing, one of which suggested that steel cut oats and blueberries, among other foods, can help you focus. Cue today’s post and these yummy steel cut oat muffins. I can’t vouch yet that they will improve my focus but they did keep me full and tasted delicious. You can use any toppings you like, but I suggest making a variety to keep things interesting. One quick note on the recipe, if you can’t find quick cooking steel cut oats, soak your oats for 24 hours in water first.
