If you know me, I am big into my porridge! For me and the kids! You can shove anything in it. It is a powerhouse of protein, good carbs and important fat. Throw out those ready-made oatmeal packets that are full of sugar, salt and ingredients you do not understand and make your own! It will take 15-20 minutes.
How to create YOUR favorite porridge
Pick one or two from each category:
Steel Cut Oats
Cream of Buckwheat
Nuts: (You can chop them or leave them whole.)
Dates- cut into pieces
Apricots- cut into pieces
Sweeteners: (Depending on the grain and the fruit you toss in, you may need a sweetener.)
Brown rice syrup
Shredded coconut- unsweetened
Berries- frozen or fresh
Any fruit that is in season
Granola- my favorite granola is shown here in my Fruit and Tahini Breakfast Bowl
Use organic ingredients if possible.
Rotate your ingredients next time.
Now you are eating an awesome breakfast!
