Buckwheat berry porridge
Buckwheat is a fabulous breakfast option. Technically a seed (not a grain) buckwheat is gluten free, low GI, high in amino acids, fibre and packed full of minerals. It also contains tryptophan, the amino acid that helps produce serotonin. And who doesn't want a few extra feel good hormones in their life?
1 cup buckwheat groats (soaked overnight)
1 grated Apple
2 tbs chia seeds or flaxseed for added omega 3
1 cup water
1.5 cups fresh almond or coconut milk
1/2 tsp cinnamon
A handful of blackberries
Combine all ingredients except berries, cook on low heat for five minutes, stirring gently.
Once it's soft and well cooked, add in half the berries, stir.
Serve in bowls, top with extra berries. Drizzle with some vanilla infused coconut cream.
