Ok, porridge is fabulous all year round, but it really comes into it’s own now in Autumn-Winter time. So warming, comforting, nutritious and reassuring. I have been adding chia seeds to my porridge for literally years now, I can’t even remember how or when I came up with the idea, or who inspired it, but I would never make porridge on just oats now. There is no going back!
This really is so simple, you simply substitute ¼ of your usual oats amount for Chia Active Chia Seeds. My usual mix that serves 1 person is
- 3 tablespoons oats
- 1 tablespoon Chia Active Immune Support with Vitamin D & Zinc
- Pinch Himalayan pink salt
- Water or plant milk (amount is personal preference depending how thick you like your porridge)
Oats are well known to be good for us, they are rich in antioxidants, and contain a powerful soluble fibre, can help lower cholesterol levels, and can help regulate blood sugars. But did you know that Chia Active Immune Support with Vitamin D & Zinc chia seeds are also an absolute nutritional powerhouse? They help with heart health, immune support, energy levels, joint health, nervous system maintenance, to name just a few of the benefits. So this chia seeds porridge is really going to support your health and wellness goals.
Now that the porridge is made, we get creative with toppings. Depending on what I have in my fridge or larder, it can be a combination of about three of any of these. (Load ‘em up!)
- Sliced banana
- Fresh berries
- Maple syrup
- Cacao nibs
- Dried banana chips
- Coconut flakes
One last tip, add a tablespoon of cacao powder when making your porridge, maybe adding a little more liquid to compensate for adding another dry ingredient, and make yourself chocolate chia porridge, gorgeous with banana and maple syrup to sweeten it up and make it feel almost dessert like.
