For many years I’ve eaten porridge as my first meal of the day. I now eat it as the last meal of the day to aid sleep.
My current recipe is below, which you can tweak to suit your own taste.
Remember that a sprinkle of salt will sweeten the porridge.
Soak the oats overnight in a glass dish that has a clip on lid.
* Buy whole seeds and grind them yourself. One ground, store in glass jars in the fridge.
** If using frozen berries, take out of the freezer the night before, when you prepare the oats.
*** Soak the Brazil nuts in water overnight, and rinse in fresh water before eating. You will be able to slice them after they’ve been soaked, as they’re soft.
**** The healthiest sweetener is date syrup, which you can buy ready made, or make yourself by blending pitted dates and water in a high speed blender.
