CLEAN BREAKFASTS :: CACAO + ALMOND BUTTER PORRIDGE
During Winter, I try to eat a hot and filling brekkie before work. Something hot and filling ensures I don't snack on something sweet or unhealthy during that typical coffee break time of 11am. Enter porridge to the rescue. That super filling ingredient that keeps you full until lunch time.
Some use water or milk to cook their porridge, I on the other hand use almond milk as a dairy substitute. For extra creaminess, soak the oats overnight in almond milk in the fridge and come breakfast, you can pop them into microwave for two minutes or stir gently in a pot over a hob.
When ready pop into a bowl and let the decoration begin. For this super clean brekkie, I've opted to sprinkle cacao powder around the edges. Not to be confused with cocoa powder, cacao is packed with antioxidants which protect the body from ageing and disease. Its a guilt free treat! In the centre, I've added my favourite, chopped banana and Meridan almond butter. Made from nothing but almonds and not a preservative in sight, it is an amazing whole food with awesome health benefits.
