healthy porridge ‘cleaning your menu’.
A fulfilling healthy porridge bowl is a great way to start your morning as the oats release energy slowly, giving a sustained energy level throughout the day rather than highs and lows. I usually add berries, banana and a variety of seeds and nuts for some good fats. This time I added cashew, walnuts, hazel nuts and chia, ground flaxseeds, sunflower and pumpkin seeds. This is a protein packed power breakfast packed with fibre and vitamins. Oh and did I mention it tastes delicious?!
Cleaning up my menu makes my feel good on the inside as I give more attention to fresh ingredients in their natural forms. It is your job to nurture your soul and fulfill it’s needs and this starts from what you put in your mouth. I increase my intake on greens and vegetables and protein while avoiding creams, heavy foods and too much salt. The more water, the better. Of course, if I have a proper dinner party I forget about this ideology, but on a regular basis it really does wonders for the skin, body and mentality. Decluttering your menu feels just as good as organizing your house and getting rid of excess things lying around. It is energizing and rewarding in the long run!
For this you need-
- A mixture of oats/grains
