Pink Porridge for morning glow

20161116_085428Pink porridge with blueberries – great antioxidant. Also stirred in a spoonful of coconut oil- great antiviral. And an addition of two drops of cinnamon bark essential oil give this a whole lot of immune boosting properties. Oh, and a spoonful of nut butter for a bit of protein.

What a way to start the day and keep those winter bugs at bay!

 

 

Autumn Energy Boosters

I am going to list a variety of autumnal foods that will boost you. Today we start with

Porridge.

I eat this almost daily. I eat sprouted oats as they are easier to digest (I use Rude Health). I add in unsweetened almond milk and a drop of cinnamon essential oil. Other options are to stir in nut butter, banana, blueberries or seeds. I sometimes stir in chia seed jam.

Oats are 3% protein so adding in nut butter or seeds (esp chia seeds) will boost its protein content and give more energy throughout the morning, seeing you more easily through to lunch. It’s a slow release carb and carbs will calm you allowing you to be more focussed. Blueberries are lovely when they heat and split, oozing purpley loveliness but other than making your porridge pretty they provide antioxidants.
