Breakfast Suggestions


Try with hummus, avocado and tomato, jam, other spreads. Use Olivani or Nuttelex margarine.

Gluten free? Try vegan gluten free bread.


Make with your favourite plant milk such as soy, rice, almond. Or water and no milk (oats cook up creamy anyway).
Add dried fruit such as raisins and dates, fresh chopped fruit such as banana, apples etc, nuts such as almonds and brazil nuts (2 brazil nuts = selenium for the day!). Also try adding a tablespoon or 2 of ground flax seeds, ground chia seeds, or ground LSA (linseed, sunflower seed, almond meal). Can buy ready ground mixes from the supermarket. This adds omegas to your breakfast!
For extra special porridge also try topping with coconut yoghurt!

Gluten free? Porridge can be made with rice flakes, millet, buckwheat or arborio rice. Orgran also have quinoa porridge.
