So there are a few things to consider when making your porridge, but before you do anything else, we always say #GOORGANIC
Organic food has no chemicals used to kill bacteria and pests. It costs more because the yields are lower, but the quality for your body is ALWAYS better. Look for Steel Cut or Regular Organic Porridge Oats to form the base of your awesome snack! If you are Gluten free then you can get gluten free oats too. Our members get access to our shopping lists and food services so if you're one of them, don't worry - this is taken care of :-) #redcarpet
Then it's really up to you. If you are OK with Lactose, milk is a winner. Organic milk. Other alternatives to milk as a liquid for porridge are coconut water, coconut milk, filtered water, almond milk, soya milk - the list is really endless. Combinations of any of these are also wirth experimenting with. We made some awesome gloop recently with 50/50 Almond Milk and Coconut Water.
A few staples I always include in the mix are:
- Cinnamon (teaspoon)
- Organic RAW Honey (as much as you like for your taste)
- Himalayan Salt (pinch)
Toppings (go crazy):
- Walnuts, Macadamia Nuts, Cashew Nuts - Any nuts!
- Cashew butter
- Fresh fruit - try dragon fruit, mango, strawberries, blueberries
- Chia seeds
- Bee Polen
Relax when you eat. Have a glass of filtered water 10 minutes prior to set the scene for your digestion. Take your time and enjoy. Smile a little. Ready for anything!
