National Breakfast Week

National Breakfast Week

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it also happens to be my favourite!  If you fuel yourself with nutritious and healthy foods at the start of your day, you are more likely to make healthier choices throughout.

I thought I would share my favourite porridge recipe with you this week because it is National Breakfast Week… I LOVE porridge.  Not only is it warming and delicious, but oats contain more soluble fibre than any other grain which makes them slower to digest keeping you fuller for longer.

My current obsession is oat, buckwheat, coconut and chia porridge (sounds fussy but I promise its not!)

Oats are great because they release energy slowly, and they are also cheap! Chia seeds are more expensive but are high in calcium and magnesium which both promote healthy bones and teeth, and they are also great for digestion and packed full of protein. A small amount of chia seeds has huge health benefits so they are worth the investment. Buckwheat not only gives it a delicious nutty taste but it helps balance blood sugar levels, it is also gluten free.  The cashew nut butter is packed full of protein, the coconut oil is full of  good healthy fats, and both of these make the whole thing really creamy!

This porridge will definitely give you the energy you need for a cold morning!


1/3 cup oats

2 table spoons toasted buckwheat grouts

1 table spoons chia seeds

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup coconut milk – you might need more/less to get your desired consistency (I use Rude Health)

1 table spoon coconut oil (I use Lucy Bee)

1 table spoon cashew nut butter


Put the oats and buckwheat into a sauce pan on a low heat with the water and stir. Once it starts to get thicker add the coconut milk in slowly. Keep stirring making sure to add more coconut milk if it gets too thick.

After 4 or 5 minutes add the coconut oil, chia seeds and cashew nut butter until melted.

Once cooked through serve in a bowl and top with nuts, fruit, seeds, cacao nibs…. anything you like!
