Paleo Porridge with Apple + Cinnamon

Paleo Porridge with Apple + Cinnamon

I love to start the day off with my favourite breakfast of all time… Apple and cinnamon porridge – which tastes just like apple strudel – only it’s healthy!
Make up a big batch of LSA  – as this is your porridge base and store in the fridge for maximum freshness.

 

What’s great about it: 

Apple adds sweetness, high in pectin fibre that helps keep you fuller for longer as well as a mineral called boron that helps strengthen your bones and keep you alert. LSA can help reduce cholesterol and fight diabetes by lowering blood sugar levels because of it’s high fiber and high omega 3 content. It’s also a good source of protein your body needs for recovery. A touch of cinnamon can help stabilise blood sugar levels.
