The tummy friendly buckwheat porridge

Sometimes our stomachs can have a bad week and you might feel that everything you eat will leave you with cramps and bloating. Don’t panic we’ve got the perfect breakfast for you!

Buckwheat porridge is a good alternative for those who suffer from Gluten intolerance, allergy or IBS. It will leave you warm and full, ready to take on a new day.

Fun fact: Buckwheat has nothing to do with wheat, it’s actually a plant related to sorrel, knotweed, and rhubarb. It’s rich in both carbohydrates and proteins which will boost your entire system.

Ingredients (serves two)
1 cup of buckwheat grouts
2 cups of homemade almond milk or milk of your choice
1 cup of water
2 ripe bananas
1tbsp of honey or pure maple syrup
2tsp of cinnamon

Instructions
Start by putting the buckwheat into a pan with one cup of boiling water, allow this to heat for a couple of minutes. Then stir in the sliced bananas, cinnamon and honey. Once the water is absorbed add one cup of almond milk and stir well. Allow it to keep cooking and gradually add in the second cup of almond milk when needed – don’t let the buckwheat run out of liquid. It should take about 20 minutes to cook completely. Top with anything you like!
