Christmas in July is here with my latest creation, Spiced Orange Quinoa Porridge!
When it comes to breakfast in winter, nothing beats porridge! Hence, why I have several differing porridge recipes on my site including Carrot Cake Quinoa Porridge,, Turmeric Latte Porridge, Choc Chilli Porridge and today Spiced Orange Superfood Porridge!
This is seriously my new favourite flavour too, it tastes like Christmas!
Quinoa is a pseudograin that provides complex carbohydrates and some protein. 180 Nutrition Superfood provides the bulk of the protein to this meal (but feel free to use another source, like an egg or another protein powder) as well as fibre, healthy fats and micronutrients. I’ve even managed to hide some veggies in here too! The coconut butter and toppings (coconut yoghurt, hemp seeds/sunflower seeds) balance out the dish with healthy fats!
This perfectly balanced porridge will keep you satisfied until lunch (and even beyond in some cases), help balance blood sugars and keep any cravings at bay!
