Recently, after talking with my acupuncturist about Ayurveda and Doshas, I realized the effect eating too many cold, raw foods/beverages was having on my digestion. As a “morning smoothie” person, I’ve really been working to start each morning with a warming breakfast instead, that not only fills me up, but is good for revving up my digestion, as well.
This “Noatmeal” porridge recipe was inspired by Be Well By Kelly’s porridge recipe, initially. Now, I’ve been having fun changing up ingredients based on where I am in my cycle (and what’s sounding tasty)!
Currently, I’m just about to then end of my Ovulatory Phase, and if you follow cycle-syncing, or seed-cycling, there are a few foods that are extra-good for you, during this time: sunflower and sesame seeds, chocolate (cacao), and coconut. I wanted to incorporate these into my breakfast porridge recipe.
Anytime I’m making porridge, I have a couple of staples:
1 TBSP coconut oil
1 cup nut milk
1 TBSP of each, hemp hearts, chia seeds and flax
The fun thing about these staples are that you can mix & match based on your preferences (or what’s in your fridge/cupboard)!
Melt coconut oil in pan, on stovetop, on medium heat
Add milk, collagen, hemp, chia and flax - stir until it becomes thick, like oatmeal
Pour into bowl, adding cacao, Sunbutter and cacao nibs.
Play around with the recipe, yourself, and let me know what combination you enjoy! Fruit is always a fun add-on, as well, if you’re not following Ayurveda to a T — fruit-combining is difficult on digestion!
