Porridge with Flax, Berries and Banana
A bountiful, energising breakfast to boost your mood!
Flax seeds (linseeds) are really cheap if you buy them loose or in packets. Store them in the fridge but grind them up a few spoonfuls at a time. They need to be ground up because the body can't digest them properly otherwise. Use a little electric coffee or spice grinder if you have one - it takes seconds.
50g/ 1 3/4oz porridge oats
350ml/12 fl oz soya milk
2 tbsp berries
2 tbsp flax seeds
Tip: you can just use a mug to measure your oats and soya milk. You need 1 mug of oats to 2 1/4 mugs of liquid.
Also, to get extra smooth porridge, try soaking your oats in water or soya milk the night before.
1. Put the oats and soya milk in a saucepan and bring to the boil and simmer for 4-5 mins, stirring so the porridge doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.
2. Keep stirring the porridge, adding in more soya milk until it has reached the desired consistency. The longer you cook it for, the smoother it becomes, just keep adding more soya milk gradually.
3. Serve and add the toppings of berries, banana and flax seed.
4. A spoonful of soya yoghurt makes a lovely added extra!
