It may well sound a bit “weird” to head an article with ….and Better Gut Health.

However – the gut is your “second brain” and if it’s upset it can do a lot to make you unwell! I ought to know (very poor guts for years) because milady was the one who looked for and found the recipe below!

An excellent morning breakfast is good to keep things moving and “regular”…. This is a far better option than the cereal boxes on the supermarket shelves……

Our Version of a Healthier Energy Breakfast

We started to use organic porridge and Rice Dream Original Organic milk (non-dairy milk) some while ago..

Health Is Not Valued Until Sickness Comes

Health Is Not Valued Until Sickness Comes

This is a most excellent replacement for other breakfasts – especially on the colder mornings!

For two we use: 14 fl oz of rice milk and just under 2 oz porridge. Use the smaller flaked porridge; the large flakes don’t work as well for porridge. Heat to the boil; giving a good stir.

For each person add:

  • 1 teaspoon (or as much or as little as you want) linseed – to keep you going
  • 1 teaspoon Pumpkin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon Sunflower seeds
  • 1 teaspoon Pine Nuts
  • 1 teaspoon Dried coconut
  • 1 teaspoon walnut pieces or any nuts
  • Some raisins or currants

Then add:

  • ½ banana each
  • 1 teaspoon honey


Obviously the seeds carry lots of nutrients and oils, some are just nice to eat!

This breakfast is warming and will keep you going for most of the morning.

VERY Yummy!
