Low Carb No Oat Meal
Low Carb No Oat Meal
This is the time of year my husband loves to eat a bowl of porridge for breakfast. I really miss eating porridge, but as I am true to a low carb way of eating, it isn’t going to happen. It is definitely time for a substitute porridge recipe though, with this cold weather. I’ve been playing with this recipe for quite a while and am really happy with the end result. While Low Carb No Oat Meal is not made from oats, it does a fantastic job recreating the traditional recipe. Served warm and topped with cream, this delicious dish makes me very happy!
Low Carb Breakfast Options
One question that I am asked a lot is “what can I eat for breakfast”, as if it is a difficult thing to do when reducing carbs. If you look under breakfast recipes, there are many healthy low carb choices for breakfast, such as muesli, granola, scrambled eggs with cheese and spinach and pancakes. There are also fab recipes for smoothies, sweet and savory muffins, a raspberry yogurt chia pudding, and a delicious chai chia pudding. This recipe rounds off this selection of recipes perfectly. One of the things I love most about it, is that it’s simple to make and takes just minutes to prepare.
A Breakfast Super Food
When I first started developing this recipe, I was trying to emulate the texture and taste perfectly. As the recipe evolved, I decided I wanted another super food breakfast’ option, simlilar to Ketohh Low Carb Muesli. The resulting recipe is truly a super food healthy choice for breakfast, that tastes great. All of the ingredients used have some form of amazing nutritional qualities to bring to the table. I intentionally added foods high in fibre, omega-3, calcium, protein, magnesium and potassium as they are perfect for a low carb diet.
The nutritional value of this dish makes it ideal for anyone following a paleo, vegan or vegetarian diet. It is also perfect if you are looking for a nutritional boost and additional fibre as well. It is gluten free as are all recipes that I produce and that are on this blog. This recipe features hemp hearts, which are an amazing protein source for a non meat food.
