Choco, Coco, & Nut Porridge

June 08, 2015
I find breakfast as an occasion that makes waking up so worth it and easy. There's simply nothing I love more than seeing my favorite happy foods sitting in one bowl, whether they are arranged in a clean and pristine fashion or just recklessly thrown in to make a beautiful scrumptious mess. 

What I like about preparing breakfast is I get to keep adding various ingredients such as fruits, seeds, nuts, and grains all to my leisure and without guilt. This way, I am able to hit much of my daily nutritional needs during the very first meal and worry less about what I will be eating for the rest of the day.

One of my go-to breakfast recipes is this porridge that I'm sure you will love! It's a hearty start that will get you feeling amazing and light and ready for whatever battle a day of work or school shall give. This is also perfect for those who are new to healthy eating or have no idea at all on how to slide their way into it. It's deliciously filling, super easy, and totally inexpensive! 

I mention below specific ingredients that I used in this very recipe but of course you have the freedom to play up with whatever you have at home or what works with your personal taste. You can also check out the guide to creating the best nutrition-packed porridge which I made last month.
