Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and rightly so. The first meal of your day sets you up for your entire day. It also provides you with the energy and fuel you need to get all your tasks done without having you feel depleted. This lentil oat porridge is the perfect punch of low fat, low-calorie nourishment, and tastes delicious too!
I found Susan’s Power Porridge at her Fifty Not Frumpy blog and I’m hoping it does the trick. That is, keep me full for a longer period of time. Although I changed it up a bit, I think you’ll find this recipe a real winner. It is super delicious and it doesn’t really need any sweetener, at least for my taste. This power porridge is a nutritional powerhouse. I am so excited to have discovered this recipe.
This is the basic recipe, but you can mix it up by adding something new like hemp seeds or leave something out if you don't have it on hand.
If you use soy milk, it'll up the protein which you also get from the lentils. The seeds and nuts add fiber and vitamin E. This is a dynamite way to start the day. Eat your Power Porridge and you’ll be powering all day. According to her blog, Susan was ably to shed many pounds by following Dr. Fuhrman’s book, Eat to Live.
