It is a cold wet day in June here at Lake Macquarie and the lady lake is totally grey from an overcast sky. On days like this my breakfast ideas quickly look to a nice smooth warm porridge. But for a cancer survivor, or someone wanting to avoid cancer, I am thinking about all the other great nutrients and antioxidants that I can include. So I am thinking an Acai Porridge for a winter Acai Bowl with some of the typical super-food ingredients for toppings.
I love an oaten porridge as your rolled oats quickly stirs into a smooth porridge that is high in protein and nutritionally sound.
Ingredients for Oaten Acai Porridge:
1 cup of Plum Foods organic oats.
1 teaspoon of Amazon Power organic Acai Berry Powder.
1 teaspoon of Boost Nutrients Australian Mango Powder.
1 teaspoon of Boost Nutrients Black Sesame Seeds.
1 teaspoon of Boost Nutrients Australian Bee Pollen.
1 teaspoon of Boost Nutrients Hemp Protein Powder.
1 teaspoon of Boost Nutrients Organic Cacao Powder.
1 1/2 cups of Water, Milk, or Almond Milk.
Method for oaten Acai Porridge:
Add your organic rolled oats to the small saucepan. (This is your biggest ingredient by volume and high quality organic oats are not expensive. So make it organic oats).
Add your choice of fluids. Either water, milk or almond milk. Then stir for 5 mins as you bring it to the boil.
Add your acai berry powder and stir it through. Then pour it into you bowl and sprinkle on your toppings.
Each of these ingredients adds a food that brings you a highly nutritious boost, plus a boost in protein. Additionally, overall your Acai Porridge or winter Acai Bowl is a low GI meal that helps to sustain your energy through the day. Most importantly this combo will give you a high dose of antioxidants that can assist you to heal your body and ward of free radicals
With majority ingredients grown organically or pesticide free your eating clean.
