high fiber diet

If you’re a normal viewers of this blog site, you’ll know that I’m a little stressed with oatmeal. It’s my family’s go-to morning meal all year long since it’s easy to make in big batches, filling up and also healthy. It is likewise so flexible as well as can be served warm or cold and also tackles the flavours of whatever delicious active ingredients you include in it.

But, I’ve observed that my kids have actually expanded a little bored of our regular morning meal and have requested for something various. Therefore, I’ve started including even more range to our breakfasts, offering more eggs and also toast as well as Do It Yourself Greek yogurt parfaits. I’ve likewise explore some various grains to earn gruel (apart from our go-to oat meal porridge). One that was a significant hit for everybody was quinoa gruel. We typically offer quinoa as our grain for dinner, yet until now, hadn’t made it for breakfast. It was a significant success! Or even much better – I made it over night in the slow-cooker and also it was hot and prepared for us in the early morning.

We all like coconut, so I chose to use coconut milk as well as add shredded coconut prior to serving (in addition to fresh berries as well as banana pieces). Quinoa is normally high in protein and fiber, so this breakfast was filling and also maintained us all going until lunch. For an extra protein as well as fibre increase, I added chia seeds, which are also high in calcium!

This is a large dish – sufficient for leftovers.
