Pimp My Porridge

Breakfast....breaking the fast.
Winter or Summer, I just love porridge. There so much nutritional benefit to porridge oats alone (soluble fibre for gut bacteria, fibre for gut motility, lower gluten content), but adding milled chia and flaxseeds (protein, omega 3), cinnamon (heart health), blueberries and strawberries (antioxidants), buckwheat granola, which has sunflower, pumpkin and black sesame seeds (healthy fats, omega 3, zinc, among other phytonutrients and minerals), goji berries (antioxidants), almonds, Brazil nuts (selenium for brain and liver health), bee pollen (protein, phytonutrients), cacao nibs.
It's good to vary your foods, not stick to the one thing all the time, so look around your cupboards and see what you have to add. Ensure some protein intake at breakfast to support blood sugar balance
throughout the day. That way, you are helping minimise the damaging effects of stress on your body and keeping your mood more balanced.
Have a lovely sunny day, wherever you are!

Here's the basic porridge recipe
50g porridge oats

Pour into a breakfast bowl and top with a selection of the ingredients above.
