Porridge for a good start!

Hello there,

I am really bad at eating breakfast.
I don't know why, but sometimes I skip my breakfast, without even noticing it.
This is not very healthy. Your body needs energy to start the day. They even say that your metabolism does not start up, until you have eaten your first meal.

Since I started blogging I am thinking about more breakfast recipes.
I would love to inspire and motivate you (and myself) to put some more time, effort and love in your breakfast!
So get up a little bit earlier, and take some time to enjoy the first meal of the day!

The recipe I am sharing today is a really quick porridge with seeds, cranberry's and bee pollen.

Bee Pollen:
I eat bee pollen occasionally. Why? Because they are suppose to be good for:

- your energy level
- your digestion
- your intestines and against constipation
- sometimes against hay fever, but be careful because it can also cause an allergic reaction.

There are so many superfoods right now, I do not always know what to believe.
You do not have to use bee pollen, you can also leave them out of this recipe and still enjoy the porridge.

Porridge with seeds, cranberry's and bee pollen
This recipe makes porridge for one portion.

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:
250 ml oat milk
50 grams rolled oats
1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds
1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
1 tablespoon grated coconut
1 tablespoon dried cranberries (I always use unsweetened cranberry's, look for them at the organic shop)
1 tablespoon hazelnuts or almonds
1 teaspoon bee pollen

Heat the oat milk, grated coconut and rolled oats in a saucepan over a low heat. Stir occasionally and cook for 5-10 minutes until the porridge is nice and smooth.
Taste some porridge, to see if the rolled oats are soft.

Serve the porridge in a plate and spread the different seeds, cranberries and bee pollen on top.

That's it!

Enjoy.

X Emma
