Blueberry & millet porridge

Millet porridge is a healthy way to start your day. If you are looking for a warming and filling breakfast, this vegan, gluten free porridge, is it!

I won't write a super long post about why you should eat millet, because honestly, I don't know a whole lot about it. I'm usually eating regular oatmeal whenever I eat porridge but recently I've started to eat warm porridge EVERY(!!) morning and therefore feel the need to mix things up a little. :P What I do know is that millet is a great source of magnesium and phosphorus, responsible for repairing body tissue and rebuilding cells in the body. It also taste wonderful, kinda like if rice, quinoa and potato would have a baby!

I know that this breakfast bowl looks really luxurious. But the fact is that it doesn't take more than 15-20 minutes to make it! One thing that I always keep ready in my kitchen is homemade granola. If you wanna make one too I can really recommend this one.

As you may know, bananas are nothing I eat regularly anymore... but every once in a while I like to really make something nice out of it, since I do like bananas A LOT!! :P So rather than mixing them in a regular smoothie as i used to, I make myself a real treat like this one.

A lot of people DM me asking why I've stopped eating bananas and also why Banana-less recipes has seemed to take over their whole Instagram feed. And the Short answer is: I have been seeing a Nutritionist and bananas, fruits and refined carbs are not very good for me since have some hormonal imbalances in my body. So: No I don't hate bananas, I just don't eat them daily as I used to... If you're interested and like to red more about this you should check out this post.
