Healthy Chia, Flax & Oatmeal Porridge with Pomegranate.

Updated: Jan 7, 2019



Breakfast, the most important meal of the day. I'm notorious for skipping breakfast. With getting the kids ready for school and getting the day going.....it's easily missed. One of my resolutions is to get back to my old routine and have a breakfast shake every day. For the days that I'm inclined to do a bit more, I'll have a meal that will sustain me through a workout session. A great example - porridge.


I love oatmeal. Not the 1-minute oatmeal but the larger oats that take time to cook. With all of the effort it takes in making them, I like to jazz mine up. In this recipe I've included pomegranate- a rich source of vitamin C and antioxidants, not to mention fibre and anti-inflammatory properties —it can help protect against disease, like certain cancers and Alzheimer's.


I've also added flax seeds & chia seeds for their fibre, something I never get enough of. But they're even an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide iron and calcium. Omega-3 fatty acids help raise HDL cholesterol, the "good" cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke.


And finally, Kiwi - vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin E, folate, potassium & fibre. Add any of your favourite fruits. Made your meals beautiful! The nicer they are, they more your body will appreciate them for the effort that you'v made!


Mint - Did you know that mint is a powerful anti-inflammatory? Many varieties of mint are an anti-inflammatory for your lungs. In clinical trials, Mint has had great results in treating asthma by blocking inflammation!

Recipe-

1 cup gluten-free oats

1 cup water

1 cup milk, almond milk or coconut milk

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp ground flax seeds

1 tbsp cinnamon powder

1 pomegranate

Sweeten with birch syrup, honey or coconut syrup.  


Add all the ingredients minus the fruit in a pot and cook for 8-10 minutes. Top with fruit and your sweetened and a slash of milk.


Another option would be to combine all ingredients and put in a bowl in the fridge overnight for Overnight, Cold Oatmeal!
