Delicious porridge with a yoghurt swirl and blueberries, pomegranate, blood orange, pumpkin seeds and argan nut butter
We’ve finally gotten real winter here in Denmark. It’s incredibly cold and we here are tons of snow. It might sound quite silly, but I had almost forgotten how cold snow is. And when it is cold, the best things are tea, soup and warm porridge. This morning my first block was cancelled, so I decided to dedicate the morning for cooking and taking photos – something I haven’t hat time for (or sunlight for) the last week.
Usually I like cooking in the weekends, but this weekend I wasn’t at home at any time. Instead I spend the weekend with the wonderful musical team. We went by bus to a town half an hour away. Here we spend the entire weekend dancing, singing and acting. The entire weekend. Wonderful! The best things I know. It just makes it even better that everyone on the team is so nice and kind and funny. Oh, how I love musical!
(Ps. I’ve gotten a solo vers in a song – SAY WHAAAT?! I’m so happy)
Well, back to the lovely porridge. This porridge is super delicious and very healthy – and pretty easy to make.
Buckwheat – Many people think buckwheat is a grain, but it is actually a fruit seed. This means it contains no protein gluten and can therefore be consumed by people sensible to gluten. Additionally it helps lowering cholesterol and blood pressure. (source)
Pomegranate – Helps prevent high blood pressure, heart diseases and some kinds of cancer. (source)
Blueberries – These little blue wonders are incredibly high in antioxidants. Additionally they help improve the memory. (source)
Blood oranges – I read this wonderful blog post over at Hello Healthy Eating a little over a week ago and since I think I’ve consumed twice as many oranges as I usually do. Oranges really are a super food.
Argan nut butter – I bought a glass of this tasty nut butter when I went to Morocco last autumn, but you can get it outside Morocco as well. Or just use any other nut butter you like! The nuts contain phytosterols which means they reduce inflammation an helps lowing the cholesterol. (source)
Top with anything you want. But this is a great combination. You can sub any nut butter for the argan nut butter.
