Sometimes it’s hard to wake up, and once you’ve dragged yourself out of bed, cooking breakfast seems like a lot of effort. You know it’s important, and you know it should be healthy, but betweengluten-free, paleo and clean eating principles it’s all become a bit complicated.
This is a really simple breakfast recipe that takes less than 10 minutes to whip up. I’ve included plenty of healthy ingredients, so you can boast about if you like.
Chia seeds are packed with protein, fibre and they absorb lots of water which means you’ll feel full longer. LSA is a mixture of ground linseed, sunflower seeds and almonds. It’s also full of fibre and adds a nice nutty flavour to your meal, and a little goes a long way. Finally, almond milk is a substitute for regular milk – being cholesterol and lactose free it’s a light alternative to milk.
As we hit Spring, with lighter mornings and more sunshine, it makes sense to start your day with colour, so I added berries and of course Laguiole’s brightly-hued cutlery. Get out of bed 10 minutes earlier for this meal – it’s worth it, I promise!
ealthy Porridge with Fresh Berries
Ingredients (serves 1)
½ cup rolled oats (use quinoa flakes for a gluten free option)
1 cup almond milk
1 ripe banana
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon peanut butter
½ tablespoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon LSA
Fresh berries to serve
These ingredients are readily available in the health food section of your supermarket or specialty health food store.
Combine rolled oats, almond milk and mashed banana in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly (so the oats wont burn on the bottom of the pan) until the mixture is thick and gooey.
Stir in the cinnamon and peanut butter. Transfer to a bowl and sprinkle the chia seeds and LSA over the top. Finally, add fresh berries of your choice.
