Pumpkin & Chia Seed Porridge

Pumpkin & Chia PorridgeWhen you are a real foodie, breakfasts are easy… eggs, eggs & eggs. Well that is OK for people like me who think eggs are the most amazing food on the planet, but not everyone does. If it is the case that eggs don’t float your boat, then real food breakfasts can be tricky because most Western breakfasts include sugary cereals or breads, which are not suitable for a real foodie. So here is a different healthy breakfast idea that will keep you full for hours. Porridge is so yummy & just feels so good, like a hug for your tummy!

This recipe serves two.


2 tablespoons of chia seeds
1 tablespoon of linseeds
1 tablespoon of sunflower seeds
1 tablespoon of pepita
5 small dates – finely chopped

1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
