Enjoy being you™
I used to eat oats every morning during winter. It used to be my staple breakfast and I would look forward to it every day. Until my gut changed, and now oats are an issue for me (it’s a fodmap). So since the mornings are getting a little frostier, I wanted to create a porridge that would fill me up, comfort my tummy, and not leave me feeling like a blown up balloon, tired and uncomfortable. This is what I made!

As the weather here in Australia cools down, our bellies crave warm and comforting foods. There’s no need to compromise your health during the cooler months, here’s a deliciously healthy and comforting wholefood breakfast idea that’s suitable for sensitive tummies. It’s gluten free, dairy free, low FODMAP, paleo and suitable for vegans and vegetarians. Plus it tastes amazing. Enjoy!
I see a tonne of pancakes on Instagram weekly. Vegan ones, paleo ones, decadent ones, fruity ones, chocolate ones, protein powder heavy ones, you name it. Everytime I looked at the recipe though, it didn’t quite sit with the way I do things in my kitchen. The ingredients didn’t suit me.
A note from Stefanie – the creator of Food Fix Up App:
“The combination of these 5 ingredients is just incredible.
I like to top this one with smoothie bowl with some of the app’s granola, cacao nibs, crushed pistachios, shredded coconut, pumpkin seeds and a little drizzle of maple syrup- but feel free to use what you love.”
The image of a poppyseed cake had been haunting me for over a week now. Today, as my kitchen is in need of groceries, I decided it was time for that cake. But I didn’t want to go out and buy one, or spend hours in the kitchen making a mess and then having to wait. ‘Cooling minutes’ (and cardio minutes) are the longest minutes ever!
Amaranth is a gluten-free, pseudo-grain with a nutrition profile similar to leafy greens. It’s one of the highest ‘grain’ sources of protein, offering all the amino acids (aka a ‘complete’ protein) so it’s a wonderful addition to a vegan diet. It’s also high in iron and has 3 x the amount of calcium compared to most other grains. It’s also the only ‘grain’ know to contain vitamin C. Impressive stuff! This porridge is very easy to make, has a lovely soft texture with a little crunch from the centre of each amaranth grain. It’s high protein, high fibre, and contains a source of fat to help keep you full throughout the morning. You can also make it hormone balancing by adding the maca powder!
