Breakfast Recipes

The Ultimate Grain-Free Porridge

Today is National Oatmeal day!!!Β It’s a day where everyone can come together and enjoy the amazingness that is oatmeal. What a perfect occasion. I had initially planned a full blog post where I rant and praise oatmeal for being the most perfect breakfast food to have reached our kitchens. This post was to include 5 bomb oatmeal recipes, but last Friday I went to the naturopath and she suggested I go gluten-free for a few weeks. My first thought when she said “try keep off oats” was: “kay but like what about that blog post I was gonna write.” Not even kidding. Anyway, I thought I’d still join in on the oatmeal festivities, but instead create a healthy, tasty, grain-free version for all my gluten-free friends out there. This combo is so delish you’ll never guess that it’s ingredients make it arguably a salad…
