This is my favorite breakfast, if not ANY meal! If I’m hungry after my green juice, or if I know that there’s a crazy day ahead of me and I need a good base, I like to start with this warm and filling dish.
At the grocery store I buy the rolled oats that are pre-packed and divided into small sachets (each contains around 25g of oats), I like ‘The Whole Foods Market’ brand, ‘365 Everyday Value’. I use the same sachet it comes with to measure my filtered water (approx. 180ml). I always add a table spoon of milled chia seeds to help with my running and I also like to add half a tea spoon of manuka honey for sweetness, especially if I’m feeling run down. Bring it all to the boil and simmer for about 4 minutes or until it’s thickened to your liking, you can brush your teeth in the meantime.
I also like to add walnuts, they are a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, a vital body nutrient that is rare in our every day diet, but mainly because I love the taste!
I like to change it up some days (woohoo!) by adding antioxidant blueberries or a nectarine or plum.
Go crazy with the porridge!
