I like a quickie breakfast because time is always not on our side. We have got places to go to, people to see and not enough time. But you gotta eat, haven’t you?
Hence this nice quickie oatmeal porridge breakfast. It is the almond butter oatmeal porridge.
This porridge will keep hunger at bay for hours and it is very nutritious because we are going to pepper it with some nice berries.
Don’t forget berries are packed with polyphenols. Polyphenols are antioxidants with a whole raft of benefits and in particular, good for your cardiovascular health.
Prevent heart disease with polyphenols and rather than get your polyphenols from supplements, how about going to the direct source – fruits and veggies.
Yes, it is more work chewing fruits and veggies compared to popping a supplement pill but you don’t have to worry about additives in supplements when you eat fresh fruits and veggies.

How to make the almond butter oatmeal porridge
>> Pour in the plant-based milk into a cooking pot. Turn on heat and add the oats. I use the hemp milk or almond milk. You may use any other.
>> Stir together to mix thoroughly. Add enough milk to ensure the oat stirs easily within the milk. If you don’t want to use too much milk, you can add water too to get the right consistency.
>> As the oat gets heated up, it will thicken. Add some more milk to lighten it up and stir continously.
>> Turn down the heat.
>> Add the almond butter and the honey inside the heated oatmeal in the pot. Almond butter does take a while to melt unlike peanut butter that dissolves pretty quickly. Keep stirring until the almond butter dissolves uniformly in the oatmeal porridge.
>> Allow to cook a further half a minute and turn off heat.
>> Pour the almond butter oatmeal porridge into your preferred bowl.
>> Now garnish with strawberries and buleberries.
Enjoy your heavenly almond butter oatmeal porridge and forget about another meal for the next 7 hours or so because that’s how long you will feel full for.
What about blood sugar friendliness? I got a blood glucose reading of 5.4 mmol/l (97.2 mg/dl) with this oatmeal porridge. Nice!
