Print this recipe!
Now that we are well and truly in the deep winter season I wanted to share with you a breakfast that will give you enormous energy plus nourish you on a very deep level. Porridge is something we all know about yet more often than not what is more commonly used is porridge flakes, jumbo oats or porridge oats. All delicious too but can cause constipation, mucus and be difficult to digest.
Yet how about using the Whole Oat Groat?
Whole Oat Groats are oats in their wholest form. Meaning they are completely unrefined in structure (they haven’t been split into flakes) and are in an absolute powerhouse of energy.
Also in Macrobiotics, it is believed that eating grains in their wholest form helps to strengthen our intestinal walls, balance out our blood sugar levels and also helps us to see and live life with a much more ‘whole’ perspective.
Yes, we take in all that beautiful wholeness energy which helps us to see things more whole, more balanced and more equally sided.
Whole Oat Groats are also full of deeply nourishing YANG (contracting) energy which is perfect to balance out this cold YIN time of year (cold and dark). This kind of breakfast will provide us with the energy source we all need to keep us strong, grounded and rooted, plus it is really quite delicious too.
It will take more time and energy to make then your usual oat flakes porridge but I promise you it’ll be worth every moment. Sometimes it’s worth making a little more effort to feed ourselves with the kind of gold star nourishment we all need and deserve!
It’s also easy to make a big batch in one go that will last you and the family for up to 4 days.
Enjoy my loves,
