Breakfast, the sacred meal that starts our day and digestion. With a plethora of cereals, bars, granolas and grains out there to choose from, which is best for you?
Oats have earned their place in the health hall of fame for their selenium and high fibre content, something which a lot of us struggle to get enough of each day. Research has found that consuming these fibre-full grains helps to reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity and certain cancers. Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory, less than a teaspoon a day has been found to significantly lower the activity of cancer-causing substances in the body.
This carrot-cake spiced porridge is packed full of sweet, fragrant flavours and plant-based goodness. Plus, the slow release of energy from the oats will help maintain your sugar levels throughout the morning.
Vegan. Gluten-Free. All Natural Ingredients.
- 40g oats (GF if required)
- 300ml unsweetened almond milk (or your choice of milk)
- 1 small carrot, grated finely
- 1 tsp flax seed
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 2 cardamon pods
- 1 tsp agave syrup (add a little more if you like it sweeter)
- 1 tbsp raisins or sultanas
- Optional pumpkin seeds and walnuts to top
Place all the ingredients in a saucepan and cook over a low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Cook until the porridge reaches your desired consistency (I like mine a little runnier).
Remove the cardamom pods and serve in a bowl, adding a sprinkling of nuts and seeds on top.
